About Therapy

Counselling/psychotherapy at its most basic offers a confidential space to talk through issues that concern you, whether a current problem, or something unresolved that may go back many years. Whilst making that first step to contact a counsellor may be challenging,
talking in a neutral space offers relief and can be inspirational and motivating.

Sometimes talking about current issues is enough to help move on from stuck places in your life, but sometimes it is helpful to go deeper into early issues or just work out ways of dealing more effectively with patterns of behaviour. You will always be in charge of what we talk about in your session and I will offer you the chance to talk in a confidential and non-judging environment

Over a career that spans nearly 30 years I have worked with a large number of issues, including relationship difficulties, work-based issues, anxiety, bulimia, compulsive eating, gender issues, and couples counselling amongst others.

I also offer on-line work, though I prefer to meet face-to-face at least once, first.

Fees: I currently (August 2017) charge 45 for a fifty minute session. From time to time there may be increases but advance notice is normally given.

What happens after you contact me?

After you have contacted me I will suggest that we meet once, to decide whether we can work together. We then arrange a mutually convenient time (normally on a Monday or Tuesday). That first meeting, is a chance you to tell me a little about what you need and also, if you would like to, tell me some of your personal story and to ask any questions you might have.

As people often come to therapy not knowing what to expect, the first session is about finding out if we can work together. Part of getting the relationship right is in establishing the "therapeutic frame" in the first sessions. This is your chance to tell me what your hopes and fears may be.

If we agree to work together we would then meet regularly (usually once a week for the first few weeks, at least) in order to help you achieve your goals. If you live too far away to come to me I offer on-line counselling ( see above).
