How can I help?
I provide a safe, confidential and non-judgemental space for you to talk and just be yourself.
I am here to help you explore what is troubling you and see how it's impacting your mood, behaviour and general outlook on life. If you are in crisis and need support I am here to listen. Perhaps you are feeling stuck and seeking to explore the barriers to being self-fulfilled. Together we will explore all avenues available to you and seek a fresh perspective. Helping you unlock your potential by shining a light on what is causing you distress.

Booking a Session
You can email or phone and leave a message and I will respond within 24 hours Monday - Friday
The First Session
The first session is an initial meeting to talk about the issues that are concerning you and what you require support with. This allows you to experience me as a therapist, how I work and to see if I am someone that you will feel comfortable talking to.
Frequency and Length of Sessions
Once we have committed to begin therapy I work to establish a supportive grounding for therapy, for this reason I recommend weekly sessions . This will usually take place on the same day and time each week. Were possible I will offer some flexibility if you have work commitments ect.
The number of sessions varies, depending on what your needs are. I am happy to work open-ended with no set end date. We will have regular check ins on how the therapy is progressing.
I am also happy to agree at the beginning how many sessions you want.
In a brife therapy model the focus is on one specific issue we will usually agree 6-12 sessions although this can be increased if required.
Individual sessions 50 minutes weekly
Couples sessions 60 minutes weekly
Fees are £70 for individual therapy and £90 for couples therapy.
I am a recognised and registered psychotherapist to provide counselling/psychotherapy with the following Private Health Insurance Companies:
Aviva, Cigna and Pru Helth.
The number of sessions your insurance company will cover is usually limited to 6 sessions. Check with your provider.
