Ways to work with me.
Every flower grows and blooms needing unique things from their environment, and I believe we are just the same. Therefore your therapeutic process with me will be as unique as you are.
In a session with me, you are allowed to be completely yourself and express to me whatever is on your mind. I will help you to explore your emotions and have an opportunity to look at things from a different perspective, and not feel alone. I will be authentic with you in a session and allow myself to be human, and I hope that this will help you to be yourself with me also.
Only you have the answers you are seeking, only you know yourself and what your own personal truth is. I want to invite you to share your story with me. When we share our stories we feel heard, validated and understood and this can be incredibly therapeutic and healing. This healing process will help you to a place where you understand more about yourself, and you may find solutions to the things holding you back, allowing you to grow and bloom.

Not ready to invest but still looking for a little guidance?
At the beginning of each month I send out The Nudge, written specifically for lost and overwhelmed millennials. I use my professional knowledge and expertise combined with my personal experience to share self-care ideas for the month ahead as well as reflective practices, journalling prompts, and resources I have loved (and think you will too!).
It's called The Nudge because so many of us want to make big changes but feel overwhelmed and intimidated by the pressure. I believe that it's the small steps that help us to feel more in control and at peace with our lives and our emotions and that we all need a little nudge every now and then to keep us on track.
The Nudge focuses on developing your self-compassion and awareness, reconnecting to you and what's important in your life. You are enough and it's time you believed it for yourself.
Does a monthly self-care email sound helpful?
I offer 1:1 sessions via video so that you can access therapy from the comfort of your own home, wherever you are in the world. This means that the therapy I offer is tailored to you, to fit around your life, to make it easy to prioritise your emotional well-being amid what is undoubtedly a hectic schedule.
Through supportive webcam therapy, our work together will help you to feel good enough by learning to understand your own emotions and how to retell your story, in a safe & accepting therapeutic process.
You can opt to see me for a one-off session or we can agree to work together on a longer-term basis. I always work to what my clients need and desire and we will review and adjust throughout the process to ensure you are getting the therapy you desire.
Sessions will take place via Zoom. Zoom is a safe and secure video link software, which I use in order to protect your confidentiality.
Available: Wednesday and Thursday day times only.
Session length: 50 minutes
Email is an extremely flexible way for you to access therapy, especially around shift work or a busy life routine. I am able to provide you with therapeutic help and responses via secure email and you are able to take the time to reply when convenient.
This allows you to be in full control of when your 'session' happens, you can reply at any time of day or night, and you can email when you are experiencing thoughts and feelings which gives me real insight into the issues that are troubling you. I will send my therapeutic reply within 72 hours of receiving your email and then you may reflect as you wish before responding.
Many people are sceptical of email therapy but contrary to what people believe the work is often deep, rich and meaningful.
Communicating only by the written word, allows people to really open up and be vulnerable, sometimes sharing in ways that would not be possible if we were face to face. It also means you can reflect and reread my responses at any time, which may be of use to you going forwards, and it allows more time for you to reflect and absorb my help before responding which does not occur in face to face therapy in the same way.
Through emails our work together will help you to feel good enough by learning to understand your own emotions and how to retell your story, using the written word to gain new insights and perspectives in a safe & accepting therapeutic exchange.
Available: Send 24hrs, response time within 72hrs
Session length: N/A
Price: Pre-paid block of 3 for £180, single sessions £65
