About me and my practice

Currently working in full-time private practice as a psychotherapist and counsellor specialising in the field of addiction including substance misuse, alcohol, compulsive lying, codependency, affairs and betrayals, internet, gambling and gaming. Help for anxiety, generalised anxiety disorder, paranoia, depression and feeling sad, manic depression, redundancy, furlough, work-related stress, bereavement, trauma, PTSD, OCD, phobias, anger management, debt management, personality disorders, eating disorders, physical and sexual abuse and self-esteem. Also offering couple counselling and adult-child to parent relationships caught up together in a cycle of emotional abuse.

Outline of offer

The starting point for the process is a one hour Assessment Appointment. Assessment is not clinical in the same way as attending a GP or hospital, neither is it interrogative, intrusive or unnecessarily invasive. Instead, we create a space to understand your history leading up to choosing to seek help and decide how best we might work together going forwards. We will cover confidentiality and you will receive a clear overview of the options available. If we choose to continue, review takes place approximately every six weeks. Individual sessions both face-to-face and online begin at £60 per hour, couples at £85 per hour.
