1:1 Psychological Therapy
Are you feeling anxious, stressed, overwhelmed?
Maybe you've recently had a big life change, or you're struggling with the uncertainty of covid, or you have been struggling with anxiety and stress for a while but now feel it is the time to get some extra support.
Do you want space to be listened to, understand what is going on for you and how to change things?
I am a qualified Clinical Psychologist (HCPC Registered) and offer both virtual and face-to-face psychological therapy. I can help you to get a better understanding of what may be going on for you, give you space to breathe, talk and process your experiences, as well as work towards making the changes you'd like to see.
Something unique that I can offer is animal-assisted psychological therapy - this is where my therapy dog Monty will join our face-to-face sessions to help you feel more comfortable, calm and engaged.
Frequently asked questions
What will it be like when I meet you?
My priority is to help you feel comfortable, listened to and for me to follow your pace. I appreciate that it can feel daunting or vulnerable talking about difficulties, and so it may be helpful to know that we will also focus on your strengths and skills. My aim is to create a trusting relationship where you feel able to talk freely about your life and experiences. In the first session, we would talk about what brought you to that meeting, what you would find most helpful and what you can expect from our work together. Throughout our work, we may explore many different ideas and work together to find alternative ways to communicate or express our ideas when it’s hard to find the words
What types of therapy do you use?
I use a range of psychological models, including Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT), as well as Narrative and Systemic approaches. I usually take an integrated approach to my work, which means using aspects of the different therapies above in response to the specific goals of the person or family I am working with.
What types of difficulties do you work with?
Do you offer an intitial consultation?
Yes, I am a strong adovate for finding a psychologist that you feel comfortable with, therefore I offer a free initial consultation (20 mins) via phone or zoom to get a better sense of what you are looking for from a psychologist and I can explain further what I can offer you. If I'm not the right fit for you, then I will direct you to other psychologists or NHS services that may be more appropriate for your needs.
How much do you charge?
