About me

It's so easy to keep doing the same things while hoping that somehow, things will change! But investing in a short course of therapy can be the catalyst you need to finally make the changes that you know are long overdue. It's not a miracle cure, but it can work miracles!

As a qualified personal development coach as well as a BACP-registered counsellor, I believe that change can happen fast, making it both an affordable and a practical option.

I specialise in helping clients:

* Manage anxiety, which may also manifest as phobias, panic attacks and OCD

* Understand and manage low mood and mood swings

* Improve self-esteem, self-confidence and self-belief

* Develop resilience against work-related stress

* Find career direction and motivation

* Overcome procrastination and fear of decision-making

* Achieve a better work-life balance

* Make lifestyle changes relating to diet, alcohol intake, exercise and general health issues

* Understand recurring patterns in relationships at work and personal life

A good therapist is more than just a kindly listening ear. As a fully qualified counsellor who is also trained as a personal development coach, I am committed to helping clients reach their potential and live their best life. I offer you the time to explore the thoughts and feelings that are troubling you, but we will also work with a number of techniques, tools and processes to help you gain insight, a new perspective and make change happen.

Training, qualifications & experience

My background is in the media, and I worked at senior level in the national press before retraining as a therapist. I write and consult on emotional and psychological health for the national media but please be assured that I never reveal details of any client.

Fees

Fees

I offer three services:

* Counselling Sessions. You can choose to come weekly, or every two to three weeks if that is better for you financially or timewise. I take cash, card or bank transfer payments. Most clients come for 10 sessions, but there is the option of adding more sessions at the end of the programme. Cost: £50 per hour.

* Personal Development Coaching.  Clients usually come for three to five sessions, spaced three to four weeks apart. The fee includes written session notes emailed to you. Cost: £95 per 90 minute session.

* Two-hour Super Session. This can be ideal if you don't want ongoing therapy, but would like some support with a specific issue, such as a signficant event coming up that you are anxous about, or a big decision you have to make. Includes emailed summary and follow-up call. Cost: £150 per session.

If you are not sure if you need counselling or coaching, email or text me and I will get back to you.
