How I Work


•    You can make first contact with me by telephone or email.
•    I will initially provide a free consultation over the telephone for up to 15 minutes.
•    Sessions are then usually one hour long, and may be longer where appropriate.
•    Telephone sessions can be arranged if required.
•    My approach is to make therapy enjoyable.  Your feedback will enable us to make sure this is the case
•    We will recognise that you are the expert on your own life and issues.  You will be the explorer in the therapeutic process and you will control the achievement of change.
•    I will guide you, providing you with tools and choices to help you make changes.
•    We will review our aims and progress frequently, to make sure we continue to move in the best direction to achieve your desired results.
•    Where appropriate, I can teach you self-help techniques to use between sessions and in the future.
•    Appointments are booked individually and payment is made at each session by cheque or cash.  I do not make block bookings or take advance payments – this ensures that you will pay for only what you need.
