You can expect a confidential place and an attentive listening where you are able to bring your concerns, give voice to your feelings and your heart’s calling.

 

 

My Training
My counselling training was with the Bath Centre for Psychotherapy and Counselling (BCPC). I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and I follow their code of ethics.

I am nearing completion of my training as a Psychotherapist in London at Re-Vision (Counselling and Psychotherapy with a Soulful Perspective).

I also draw from my experience of a three year training in Somatic Experiencing (SE®) as developed by Peter Levine. It can help bring more awareness to feelings held in the body particularly when expressing them in words is difficult.

My continuing professional development helps me to include a life long interest in the depth psychology of C G Jung. I believe in the value of bringing a wider sense of meaning to my work with clients. Whereas some theories support us to make sense of the past, soulful/Jungian ideas offer possibilities for making sense of the future, or life as a whole.

How to proceed
Telephone me if you have any questions or to arrange an initial meeting. Talking to me on the telephone or meeting up is a good opportunity for you to talk about what you are looking for and for us to discuss and see how we might best work together.

These are some familiar questions that you might be interested in:

Q: How long does it take?

A: I tend to work on an open ended basis and it will really depend on what you are looking for at this time. I recommend reviews at regular intervals during our work together.

Q: How often do I have to come to see you?

A: A once a week appointment at a regular agreed time is normal.

Q: How much does it cost?

A: I charge £45 for each 50 minute session.

Q: What do I do next?

A: Telephone me and we can have a brief conversation about what you need and you can ask me any other questions. We can then arrange an initial meeting. My telephone number can be found at the top of this page. Alternatively you can click here and send me an email.
