What To Expect
I am an integrative therapist, meaning I draw upon a variety of methods, but I largely follow the person centred and psychodynamic approaches. This means the counselling sessions are led by you, focusing on what you want to talk about, but I may also ask you about childhood experiences which may be effecting you now.
No matter what issue has brought you to therapy, I guarantee that you will be met with warmth and compassion.
I offer a free 20 minute informal initial consultation. I do this to give us both the chance to make sure we are the right fit for each other, before you commit to sessions with me.

About Telephone and Zoom/Skype counselling
I have been seeing clients for therapy sessions over zoom and telephone since March 2020. Initially I wasn't sure how I felt about this! However, I have been very surprised as to how well this type of therapy actually works. To read more about the benefits of counselling and psychotherapy via zoom or telephone please read more here.

Absolutely. I follow the BACP's confidentiality guidelines; everything you tell me remains strictly between you and I.

Yes, if you can not commit to weekly sessions (for example, you might be a shift worker) I would be happy to work with you on a flexible basis.
