I offer individual and couples sessions, as well as supervision both group and individual.
Making the first step can be daunting. You are most welcome to telephone or email me with any questions you may have before we decide to meet. When we first meet we will look at what is troubling you and talk about practical arrangements such as fees and appointment time and day.
The sessions are 50 minutes long.
In a session I apply the use of creative techniques alongside talking. I may suggest a creative technique if appropriate, as an aid to the therapy. These could be working with movement, art, poetry. If you prefer to just talk that is fine.

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
Health and Care Professions Council
The HCPC are an independent, UK-wide health regulator. They set standards of professional training, performance and conduct for 16 professions.
They keep a register of health professionals who meet their standards, and they take action if registered health professionals fall below those standards. They were created by a piece of legislation called the Health Professions Order 2001.
Registration means that a health professional meets national standards for their professional training, performance and conduct.
