How I Work

My approach is relational based, working from a Humanistic Person-centred perspective. I believe and trust that we all have the inner resources to find our own answers, heal, grow and reach our full potential; living a richer and more fulfilling life given the right conditions and a helping relationship.

I work in a professional, confidential, safe and supportive environment so you can explore difficult or painful experiences; to gain a clearer understanding of yourself without the fear of being judged or criticised. I believe each individual is unique and has worth, regardless of their age, gender, sexuality or disability.

Therapy Sessions

How I Work. rainbow2.jpgI offer short-term therapy (6-8 sessions) and open-ended longer term therapy, as required.

Providing both types of services allows either the focus to be on resolving a specific problem or allows deeper exploration around more complex emotional difficulties and problems. Alternatively it can give you the opportunity to resume therapy in situations perhaps where you have previously undertaken a short-period of counselling through your GP or your employer and you feel that your difficulties have not been fully resolved.

Sessions are 50 minutes in duration usually weekly but you may choose to attend fortnightly or monthly. Evening and Saturday morning appointments are available.

A reduced fee for an initial 30 minute session is offered to enable us to get to know a little something about each other and whether we would feel comfortable working together. There is no obligation for you to continue after this introductory session.

Concessions are available for students of recognised Counselling and Psychotherapy courses contracting long-term.

I abide by the code of ethics of UKCP and my accrediting organisation Sherwood Psychotherapy Training Institute (SPTI) and the BACP Ethical Framework for Good Practice.

I remain committed to my on-going personal and professional development in order to maintain my ability to perform competently and to keep abreast of professional developments.

My work is fully insured.
