I use a series of short-term interventions, at times of crisis to empower the individual. These consists of a 50 minute counselling session for an initial 6 or 12 weeks. This may be extended if necessary. The sessions are best carried out in my private counselling room, but were circimstances are difficult can be done via telephone. This require you to be in a calm private space to allow you to be able to discuss your issues.

I can offer emotional support in the following areas:-

Relationships - break-ups, separation, bereavement / loss, loneliness. Individual's low self-esteem sexuality, concerns over health, depression, anxiety, addictive behaviour, traumatic experiences, sexual issues and suicidal thoughts.

Groupwork / Supervision

I have several years experience of participating in self-development groups.

For three-and-a-half years I provided Group Supervision/Emotional Support at Terrence Higgins Trust, the leading HIV charity in the UK.

I have run two emotional support groups for The Cara Trust during the past two years. This has been for both heterosexual and gay men.

My training is in the Gestalt method however I also draw on Humanistic / Person-centred techniques.

Initial Consultation

The initial consultation is an opportunity for me to meet you and for us both to agree to work together, and for us to assess your situation and possibly the focus of your Work.


My standard fees are £45 for individuals per session (which is 50 minutes), and for couples are £70. There will be a charge of £25 for the initial consultation and couples are £50. In some circumstances fees may be negotiable. Fees are payable one week in advance.
