My fees for face-to-face counselling, therapy or mentoring sessions start from £90/per 50-min session. Telephone/Skype/Zoom/Whatsapp/FaceTime sessions start from £80.

Do you offer therapy sessions, counselling and mentoring on the phone, Whatsapp/FaceTime and online via Skype/Zoom?

Yes, I do. I offer telephone and online counselling and addiction therapy via Skype/Zoom, Whatsapp, FaceTime and mobile.

Skype, WhatsApp sessions

In response to clients who can’t travel or are based abroad, I offer a powerful and safe framework for online therapy and mentoring sessions. The results have been exceptionally well received. My experiences have shown that both therapy and mentoring can be easily achieved via online sessions and success rates from the online sessions have been very positive. Travel time and cost benefits make this an increasingly popular way of doing therapy and mentoring. Using either Skype/Zoom or FaceTime/Whatsapp or just telephone, I create a safe space for therapy and mentoring to work. Obviously, safeguards are put in place for the rare event if wifi disconnects. Please call me on  +44 7737 745 684 or email me to arrange an online therapy session. More about online counselling and therapy

How do you work?

I use an integrative therapeutic approach which combines various therapeutic modalities, person-centred therapy and counselling.
Firstly, the aim of counselling and addiction therapy is to help you set achievable and empowering short-term goals so you can manage your issues and addiction and develop new coping strategies for your emotional states.
Secondly, I will help you develop adaptive skills so you can recover physically as well as mentally and emotionally.
Thirdly, we will start exploring the source or cause of your emotional states and addiction.
Lastly, we will work together to set long-term goals, which include rebuilding damaged relationships, accepting responsibility for actions and releasing shame and guilt as well as moving forward with clarity, purpose and zest for life.
My professional ethos is to help you grow and thrive and use problems as opportunities to create a new future for yourself.
You can call/text/Whatsapp me on 07737 745 684 to find out more about how I work.

What happens during the session?  What questions you might be asked?

If it’s your first therapy session ever, you might be wondering what to expect. Although you’re taking a very positive step to resolve your issues, you may still want to know what kind of questions you’ll be asked. Here’s a short list of typical initial questions.
1. Why are you seeking therapy now? What do you want to accomplish in therapy?
2. Have you had therapy before? What kind of therapy?
3. How have you been coping with your problem/s so far?
4. What’s your family background and what was it like growing up in your family?
5. Have you ever thought of harming yourself or ending your life? By law, therapists are required to ask this question with full confidentiality (see below).
6. Are you in a relationship? How connected do you feel to the people around you?

If it helps, you can write down a list of questions you have for me which will give you more clarity about your issues and what you want. You can also call/text me on 07737 745 684 to clarify how I work.
