About me

Many people are currently experiencing heightened anxiety, stress, low mood and low self-esteem. If you are going through a difficult time, feel that your mental health is suffering or your relationships with others feel strained, please reach out and book a free consultation call. 

I appreciate that finding a therapist to work with can feel daunting - a free consultation call gives you the chance to discuss your individual needs, and find out if I can help you. I provide both short and longer term therapy and offer a limited number of lower fee options.  Online and in-person sessions are available.

About therapy

We all face difficult points in our lives.  Seeking professional help can be supportive whilst we are in the midst of such times, lessen the time we spend feeling stuck, enable long lasting change.  Working with a psychologist can help you make sense of the difficulties you currently face, understand what has been preventing you from moving forward, and help you find ways to move forward towards improved wellbeing, improved relationships with yourself and others, and improved ability to engage in daily life. Ultimately, therapy aims to equip you to support yourself after therapy has ended, and live a meaningful and engaged life.

About me

As a psychologist, I am well positioned to tailor therapy to the needs of those I work with. I have provided psychological therapy in the NHS, private and charitable sectors to adults, couples, and children. I have additional professional experience in the area of employee wellbeing and my experience in the personal development field spans 20 years.

Next Steps

To arrange a free 15 minute phone consultation or an initial session, please email me and we can set up a convenient time to talk further. At an initial session, we'll talk about what brings you to therapy now and what you hope to gain from your sessions. If I believe I can help and you'd like to continue, we'll set up a second session, and will arrange how frequently to meet (usually weekly).

Key details

Wheelchair user access
Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.

The clinic Old Amersham is wheelchair-accessible. I also offer internet and telephone therapy.
