My Therapeutic Approach

I believe in the power of a personalised, client-centred approach to therapy. I understand that each individual's journey is unique, and I am committed to providing a tailored experience that respects your autonomy and expertise in your own life.


My therapeutic framework includes a Client-Centred Approach: I believe that you are the expert on your own life and experiences. My client-centred approach empowers you to take control of your healing process by providing guidance, support, and understanding. I blend this with Transactional Analysis (TA) and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)  techniques to help you identify and change unhelpful patterns in your thoughts, feelings, and behaviours that may be contributing to your symptoms.

Therapy & Counselling FAQs

How do I know if I need counselling?

Counselling can be beneficial for anyone facing challenges in their life, seeking personal growth, or wanting to explore their thoughts and emotions. If you are experiencing difficulty coping with life events, struggling with relationships, feeling overwhelmed, or grappling with feelings of sadness or anxiety, counselling may provide valuable support and guidance.

How do I schedule an appointment?

To schedule an appointment, please contact me via telephone or email, both of which are provided on the Contact page of this website. I will be happy to discuss your needs, answer any questions you may have, and find a suitable time for your initial consultation.

What can I expect during the initial consultation?

During the initial consultation, we will discuss your reasons for seeking counselling, your goals, and your expectations. This session is an opportunity for you to ask questions and gain a better understanding of the therapeutic process. It's also an opportunity for us to determine if we are a good fit for working together.

How long do counselling sessions last?

Each counselling session typically lasts for 50 minutes. However, the duration of the overall counselling process varies depending on each individual's unique circumstances, progress, and therapeutic goals.

What is the cost of counselling sessions?

Sessions are priced at £60 for a clinical hour (50 minutes) and £30 for half a clinical hour (25 minutes).

Will my counselling sessions be confidential?

Yes, confidentiality is a crucial aspect of the therapeutic relationship. I adhere to strict ethical guidelines, ensuring that your personal information and the content of our sessions are kept confidential. There are some exceptions to confidentiality, such as if there is an imminent risk of harm to yourself or others, but these situations are rare and will be discussed with you during the initial consultation.

Can I switch between different session formats (face-to-face, Zoom, telephone, walking therapy)?

Yes, I offer flexibility in the format of counselling sessions to accommodate your needs and preferences. If you wish to change the format of your sessions, please discuss this with me, and we will make the necessary arrangements.

How do I know if your counselling services are the right fit for me?

It's essential to feel comfortable and supported by your therapist. The initial consultation is an excellent opportunity for you to assess our compatibility and determine if my counselling services are the right fit for your needs. If you feel that we are not the right match, I can provide referrals to other therapists who may be better suited to support you.
