Supervision - Therapy - Contact Me

Hello and welcome to my website.

As an experienced counsellor and therapist I work with individuals, couples and families on a wide range of issues...

I do not believe that 'one size fits all' as no one single approach to counselling and therapy is equally suitable for all clients. In recognition of this fact, I aim to meet the individual needs of my clients by working with an integration of approaches including Humanistic, Person-Centred and Psychodynamic Psychotherapy and Counselling.

As a clinical supervisor, I work online with counsellors in training and qualified practitioners from all modalities, both 1:1 and in supervision groups of 2, 3 or 4.

My therapy practice

By working together we can turn things around for you, unlock your inner resources and help you to live more fully and comfortably with yourself. My aim is to help you to help yourself to make the necessary changes in your life that will enable you to realise your wishes.

I am always committed to understanding the world from your perspective whilst offering my empathy, support, impartiality and confidentiality. I work with each client as an individual who needs to feel heard, understood, respected and valued.

Remote therapy and counselling

Working remotely offers the convenience of accessing professional support without the inconvenience of travel or location restrictions.

All that you require is access to a phone, laptop or PC, and Zoom, WhatsApp or FaceTime, as well as a suitably private space, in order for us to create and meet in a

safe therapeutic working environment.


Regular sessions are either on an open-ended basis or within a time-limited framework. Early morning and day appointments are offered subject to availability.

I also provide a limited number of concessionary rates for unwaged clients.

Some Frequently Asked Questions

How many sessions will I need ?

Some clients find that a short number of sessions (as in time-limited work) are sufficient whilst some feel more comfortable with an open-ended arrangement. The number of sessions you require needs to be tailored to meet your needs and can be discussed during the initial meeting.

Is therapy confidential ?

Yes. Whatever is said in sessions remains private between client and therapist, except that the work may be discussed in clinical supervision, with the client's identity protected, in accordance with the BACP ethical guidlines. In the rare situation where a client may be at risk of being hurt, hurting themselves or another person then the therapist may not be able to ensure complete confidentiality. Should a client divulge a connection with acts of terrorism then confidentiality cannot be retained, in accordance with the law.

Do I need to be referred by my doctor ?

No, however it is advisable that you inform your doctor that you are seeing a therapist if you are undergoing medical treatment.

Do I need to have a major problem to be in therapy ?

No. Clients come into therapy for a great many different reasons. Some clients use sessions to assist their personal development, improve their confidence and build their self-esteem. Regardless of the issues you bring to therapy it must be stressed that seeking help doesn't mean you are failing or weak, indeed, quite the opposite. It marks a decision that you have made to take control of your life.

What happens in the first session ?

The first appointment is a good opportunity for you to ask any questions you may have. This allows us to meet, talk about what has brought you into therapy, what you would like from therapy and discuss whether therapy may be of help to you. Many clients experience a great sense of relief at having made initial contact and talking through their issues. However, this session may only scratch the surface for some clients. For this reason you may be offered a further four sessions before we decide the best way forward and whether therapy may be helpful to you.

What if I don't like being in therapy ?

Therapy can feel uncomfortable to begin with. This is quite understandable as you may be examining feelings which you have been holding onto for some time, many of which you may never have been fully aware of before. It is important that you talk to your therapist about anything that comes up for you as much of the work is about being fully supported in facing whatever you encounter. You can stop therapy at any time, however, it is always best to discuss your decision with the therapist in order to work towards a suitable ending.
