I know from my own ongoing therapy journey just how challenging it can be to make the first contact with a counsellor. I offer a free session of 30 minutes online or on the phone so you can 'meet' me in the comfort of your own home, without obligation. 

You may be suffering from anxiety, depression, the effects of trauma, addiction or be experiencing any other mental health difficulty. I am here to join you on your journey to feeling better. I’ll help you move forward in a way that is right for you.

The therapy relationship we build together is THE most important aspect of our work. I put this first, and so I offer a very relaxed place where you can feel safe to be yourself. 

Your initial consultation will allow you to meet me, to tell me what is happening in your world and how you would like things to be instead. It is an opportunity for us to both ask questions, and to decide whether we are the right fit for each other. Getting the right therapist for you is so important, and if I'm not right for you that's OK! Once we get started, our sessions can be held in person in Hull or Cottingham. I am also happy to conduct sessions online using Zoom if this feels safer for you.

I use a variety of approaches as a therapist to suit your specific needs. My philosophy is to 'do what works' - and by implication to stop doing what doesn't work. My approach often involves a deep dive into your past, to try and work out the patterns and 'scripts' you are running (often out of awareness) and to update them to suit you better. 

If that sounds of interest and you would like to discuss how we might work together, please book a free consultation using the button on my website. Alternatively, get in touch by using the "email me" button above. 

I very much look forward to working with you.
