Working with me

I currently have availability on Mondays to Thursday and offer both daytime and evening sessions. I work face-to-face with people in my custom therapy room at Northern Renaissance Studios in Chortlon-cum-Hardy, Manchester, as well as online and by telephone.

Session fees are £60 per 50 minutes. Fees can be paid by bank transfer.

You don’t need to know how long you’d like us to work together when you get in touch. In the free telephone consultation we’ll work together to get a sense of what has brought you to therapy, whether you have specific goals, and what you may be expecting or hoping for. Often early sessions are quite cathartic, as many things you have been holding in can finally be shared in a non-judgemental, confidential space. Sometimes it can take time for us to build a space where you feel safe and secure, and I promise I will listen to you and support you.

From the first session it is typical for us to meet once a week, at the same time and place every week. This helps provide certainty and means that we can focus on our work together. We can work to arrange therapy around shift patterns, holidays and fluctuations such as caring responsibilities.

How long we work together is in your hands. Some people find that they want a certain number of sessions to tackle a specific goal, or to work together over a particularly difficult period or anniversary. Occasionally people just want one session to get something off their minds. Other people chose to give themselves a longer period of therapy to explore their self, past and experiences in depth. I invite you to tell me what works for you, and I can help you work out what you want.
