Therapy provides a safe and confidential space for you to talk about your issues and concerns. I will help you explore your thoughts, feelings and behaviours so you can develop a better understanding of yourself and of others. I will not give you opinions, advice, diagnosis or prescribe medication. I can help you find your own solutions – whether that’s making effective changes in your life or finding ways of coping with your problems.
What happens in therapy
Therapy can take different forms depending on your needs and what type of therapy may be suitable.
Most therapy takes place in planned, regular sessions which last for 1 hour. How often you see me and how many appointments you have will depend on your individual circumstances.
What you talk about will vary depend on what you want help with.
It could include:
- your relationships
- your childhood
- your feelings, emotions or thoughts
- your behaviour
- past and present life events
- situations you find difficult
- Free 15 minute telephone consultation
- Initial assessment session
- Ongoing weekly therapy: 1, 2 or 3 hours

I’m currently undergoing advanced training in Intensive Short-term Dynamic Psychotherapy (ISTDP), an accelerated form of dynamic psychotherapy. This active approach focuses on processing emotional blockages and changing maladaptive response patterns which are responsible for symptoms such as anxiety, depression and relationship difficulties.
As an emotion-focused, experiential therapy ISTDP aims to get to the root of your difficulties in as short a time-frame as possible to enable you to overcome symptoms and reach your full potential.
Booking and payment
You can then make an enquiry by email, telephone, text or by completing the contact form.
Accepted methods of payment are either by bank transfer or for your confidentiality requirements I accept cash payments.
If you are unable to attend an appointment, please let me know with as much notice as possible, I may be able to rearrange the appointment to a more suitable day/time. I expect a minimum of 48 hours’ notice except in cases of emergency. Any appointments missed without acceptable notice being provided will be charged at the usual rate for the session.
