What I do
I offer affordable, professional counselling and psychotherapy for adults.
I am passionate about providing accessible counselling and psychotherapy at an affordable price. I will provide a non-judgemental, confidential and welcoming space for you to discuss your situation.
You have made the first step in searching for a counsellor, this can feel like a difficult step to take, and I understand that choosing the right counsellor is vital for you to experience effective therapy. I believe that a comfortable and relaxed environment can contribute to a positive experience of therapy.
There are several reasons why people choose therapy, but the most important reason is yours, so rather than compare to a long list of explanations as to why people may come to therapy, perhaps the next step is for you to contact me so I can listen to your reasons and then if you like my approach we can tailor the therapy together to suit your needs.
I am a qualified integrative psychotherapist and I work in a relational psychodynamic approach, which can offer an understanding of our behavioural patterns. I take the view that there is no single formulaic approach that can successfully cater to every client’s needs. I will work with you to provide a bespoke individual therapy plan. I have no expectations as to how your therapy should be, and we can use a variety of techniques to help you make sense of how current concerns could perhaps be related to earlier or present life experiences.
I previously worked in the NHS before establishing a private practice. I have experience working with clients relating to anxiety, bereavement, bullying, depression, domestic abuse, health-related issues, loss, low confidence/self-esteem, relationship difficulties, trauma and work-related issues.

I tailor the therapy to meet your individual needs and allow the therapy to flow in whichever direction is needed for you.
Therapy is a collaborative partnership within the therapeutic relationship.
Contact me for a free initial telephone or face to face assessment.
Sessions are usually weekly and in our first session we can work out what suits you best in relation to short term or long term therapy with no obligation after the initial consultation.
When possible I would appreciate 24hrs notice of cancellation, otherwise I will require full payment for the missed session.
Payments are accepted via bank transfer or cash.
