About me

How Human Givens Therapy can help

You may have a concern in your life for which you would like solution-focused support. In therapy we look together at how well your needs are being met and the impact of this on your emotional wellbeing. Using the Human Givens framework ( we also look at how you can use your innate resources more effectively to meet these needs. Within this my approach is empathic, fluid and flexible, drawing on a range of evidence-based techniques and approaches to suit you as the client. It is effective often in few sessions and for a wide range of concerns, including anxiety, depression and addiction. For trauma a safe, non-intrusive and highly effective approach can be used.

More About Me

My therapy is with adult clients. I offer sessions in Bromsgrove, Stourbridge and Kidderminster.

I have worked successfully for over twenty years as an Educational Psychologist and find the Human Givens approach to be helpful in face-to-face work with children and young people, parents and staff. It also deepens my understanding of schools and other organisations and how the needs of all those working within these systems can be better met. 

Making contact

I am available flexibly for daytime, evening and sometimes weekend appointments, with availability to travel and online therapy considered on a case-by-case basis. I also offer a free initial 15-minute telephone, or short e mail consultation if preferred, to help decide if you would like book an initial session.

What To Expect in Your First Session

The first arranged session normally lasts from an hour to an hour and a half. This facilitates any further information-gathering on the area of concern, but also allows us the time to agree and carry out therapy to agreed goals and in a relaxed and well-paced way.  A further session can be agreed if needed and this is always determined by you as the client.

Session Fees

Fees are at a set rate of £50 per session, regardless of length or number of sessions.

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.
