How I work

Before commencing Counselling or Psychotherapy, I will offer an exploratory session to discuss whether this work is suitable for you. It will give you a chance to ask any questions that may not have been covered on my website, and it will give you the opportunity to get to know me and the style in which I work. The exploratory session will identify whether short or long term work will be more appropriate in addressing your  particular needs.

I offer one-to-one short term solution focused (minimum 6 weeks) counselling to those looking to address a specific issue, or alternatively long term psychotherapy for those  individuals who want to undertake a more in-depth exploration of how past patterns of relationships may be impacting current relationships.

At times when we feel like life is a struggle and we feel lost, we may rely on unhelpful and unhealthy ways to manage emotionally painful memories and our current distress. Perhaps it is at these times finding the words to describe how you are feeling or what might be happening for you can also be difficult, and so I may invite you to use an additional medium of creative art as a way of expressing yourself. Of course, you would have the choice of whether or not to use this additional creative form and I would respect this if we agreed to work together.

Please note that I abide by my registering body’s Code of Ethics (UKCP - United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy) which can be accessed via their website. I also conform to the General Data Protection Regulation 2018.
