“When someone really hears you without passing judgment on you, without trying to take responsibility for you, without trying to mould you, it feels good. . . . When I have been listened to and when I have been heard, I am able to re-perceive my world in a new way and to go on…” Carl Rogers

How much does it cost?2022-05-06T08:28:19+01:00

I currently charge £50 for a one hour session

How many sessions will I need?2022-05-06T08:31:17+01:00

That is difficult to answer – it depends on your situation. Sometimes things can be resolved in only a few sessions (especially with BWRT) but there may be a need for more.


Confidentiality is one of the most essential parts of therapy. Everything we talk about in sessions is strictly confidential, in accordance with the BACP ethical framework.


Clients often have shame or guilt over thoughts or past events. All of my sessions are non-judgmental. It is important that the client feels safe to talk about whatever they need to without any fear of being judged.

Of course, with BWRT® the client does not need to disclose what their problem is… they only need to know how they would prefer to feel :-)

Session times2022-05-06T08:37:38+01:00

It is important to arrive on time, and to finish on time. This is part of our counselling contract.

Phones and gadgets2022-05-06T08:39:31+01:00

I ask that mobile phones, smart devices and watches are turned off during the session, to avoid distractions. Of course, there may be a need to leave your phone on – if you might need to stay in touch with someone for example. Please let me know before the session starts.

Alcohol and drugs2022-05-06T08:42:51+01:00

It is very important that the client is ‘present’ during the session, otherwise the therapy benefit may be reduced. I ask that clients do not arrive for their session under the influence of alcohol or drugs. If this is the case, it is likely the session will be cancelled, but there will still be a charge. It goes without saying that you must not drive whilst under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

What type of therapy is used?2022-05-07T15:52:13+01:00

I am an ‘Integrative’ therapist – which means I use different approaches depending on the client’s situation. A big part of this is BWRT® which is a fantastic type of therapy which often achieves fast and effective results.

Cancellation Policy2022-05-07T15:57:50+01:00

I ask for a minimum of 48 hours notice if your appointment needs to be changed or cancelled. If the notice time is less than this, the appointment is still chargeable.


I accept card payments (using a card reader), bank transfers (I will give you the bank details) or you can use Stripe – I will send you a payment link. I prefer not to accept cash. I do not accept cheques.

Payment is required at the end of the appointment please.


I adhere to the BACP Ethical Framework.

When using BWRT® I adhere to the BWRT Institute regulations.
