About Me & FAQs
I approach each person as a unique individual with a complex and particular history and work from this starting point with your feelings of unhappiness or dissatisfaction.
In helping clients to gain insight around their issues and to make changes, I have worked with people of all age groups, different sexual orientation, and from diverse cultural and ethnic backgrounds.

Who comes for counselling?
People who come for counselling are ordinary people who are experiencing life as being painful. This may be due to problems in a relationship, work-related stress, the loss of a loved one, anxiety or perhaps a general sense of unhappiness.
Talking to a trained counsellor is a way to understand yourself and your life more fully and, through this, to start to take responsibility for making different choices for yourself.
How long does counselling last?
I offer both short-term and long-term work. The number of sessions will depend on the reasons why you are seeking counselling. Some people come to counselling with very specific issues whilst others come with a more general sense of unease and dissatisfaction.
How much does it cost?
I charge £50 per session. All sessions last 50 minutes and take place on a regular day and time each week.
Is counselling confidential?
Counselling is a place of safety and trust. Counselling is confidential.
In line with best counselling practice, I take aspects of my work to a supervisor in order to have another professional perspective. Your anonymity is respected throughout this process.
When do you have appointments?
I work Monday and Wednesday evenings.
