Making that first call or sending an email is an important step and I will treat all enquiries with sensitivity and confidentiality. I am committed to providing a safe, non-judgemental and confidential space in which you can explore what brings you here.

Please call 07811 073 255 or email to arrange a free, 20 minute phone or face-to-face consultation to discuss your needs. If I am unable to take your call, then leave a message and I will get back to you as soon as possible during office hours.

Initial session

In our first session we will talk about what's going on for you now and what you have come through in life. Meeting face-to-face gives us an opportunity to see whether we would work well together. It is important that you feel comfortable with your therapist and this is a very personal choice. Talking therapy is not a panacea and we may discuss other routes that you can take.

We will explore the direction or outcome that you want to move toward and agree the number and frequency of sessions. Different people have different needs and processing times and this also depends on the issue with which you want to work.

Regular sessions

Weekly sessions are preferable, particularly at the beginning, and we can move to longer intervals depending on your schedule and financial situation. Psychological change work is a process and it is necessary to give yourself time to develop and absorb your insights. We will periodically review how our work is going and use this feedback to pace and realign our sessions.


Our work together is completely confidential apart from when there is an issue of serious harm to one's self or another person. In this very rare instance, I will say that I need to break confidentiality.

Call 07811 073 255 or email to enquire about the cost of sessions. Payment can be made by BACS (in advance) cheque or cash (on the day); sorry, I cannot accept credit or debit cards.
