A bit about how it works...
I offer a free 15 minute telephone consultation so give me a call - It's a really good way for you to see if I am the right person for you, and for me to hear a bit about you and how we can work together.
Then, we can arrange a first appointment / initial consultation at a time that is suitable for us both. I have a practise in Gloucester and also do appointments at the Isbourne Holistic Centre in Cheltenham. (Skype sessions or home visits may also be arranged).
On your first appointment, there are a few questionnaire type forms to fill in which provide me with some details about yourself. All notes are kept confidential and in line with Data Protection and insurance requirements. Depending on what is required, we will agree how many sessions are needed and plan regular reviews so we can monitor your progress.
If you have any queries at all, just give me a ring. I look forward to hearing from you.

Health & Safety: Your health and safety is of paramount importance and you are reassured that your therapist works within relevant health and safety laws, policies, procedures, codes of conduct and good practice.No claims are being made that the methods and techniques used can heal physical or mental health conditions and the session should not be a substitute for the advice and treatment of a doctor or other licensed health-care professional.
