What To Expect
I am an integrative therapist, meaning I draw upon a variety of modalities, but I largely follow a mix person centred, psychodynamic and CBT approaches. As I am trained in a variety of modalities I am able to tailor my approach to suit your needs.
No matter what issue has brought you to therapy, I guarantee that you will be met with warmth and compassion.
I offer a free 30 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 decide to go ahead with counselling sessions.

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.
