Taking that first step and seeking support can sometimes feel overwhelming. Alongside the normal questions, like; Where to begin? What therapist is best for me? How can I get to an appointment? Who will look after the kids?
But you can now access counselling and psychotherapy from the comfort of your own home, and at a time that is truly convenient for you.
Online counselling and psychotherapy overs access to therapy, for everyone. It's a great help for those clients that can't get to a physical clinic location i.e. maybe you’re housebound because of a physical or medical condition, like agoraphobia, or maybe you live in the countryside, far from any town or area that offers therapy. Maybe you have little children, and getting to physical appointments is just not practical. Maybe you care for an elderly relative or perhaps working long hours or shifts means you struggle to find time to get your needs met. Whatever your reason, online therapy can really help…
Online therapy is a service that I have been offering for years, and it's used by many of my clients.

The beauty of online therapy is it’s ability to fit within a busy lifestyle, where family, work, kids and loved ones normally take priority. It’s time specifically designated and designed for you…
Don’t worry if online technology baffles you. I will provide instructions, or talk you through the process.
How to access online counselling and psychotherapy
Online counselling and psychotherapy is incredibly easy to access. As long as you have an internet connection and a device like a smart phone, tablet or computer, you can access the support you need. I will ask you to download a programme or app, called Skype or VSee (if you don’t have these already). And when it is installed, we are good to go.
I will ask you to download the counselling and psychotherapy contract. This can be found on my website. It isn’t as scary as it sounds. The contract outlines how we will work together, what you can expect from me, and in turn, what I expect from you as my client. Things like fees, session duration, cancellation policy and expectations are all included. So it helps you understand counselling and what to expect.
You will need to print this off, sign it and return it before we begin work together. Again, don’t worry if you don’t know how to do this. I can help talk you through it easily.
What is therapy?
Therapy is a confidential service thats completely free from judgement. You are free to discuss and work through your concerns, worries, emotions and feelings. It can be highly effective in helping people with difficulties such as: abuse, addiction, anxiety, bereavement, depression, low self-esteem, loneliness and isolation, self-harm, suicidal thoughts, stress, sexuality or gender identity and work related difficulties.
It’s a truly safe space to discuss private matter such as sex life/desires and relationship issues.
What is my experience?
For many years, I have worked with women, men, adolescents, young adults and couples in a wide range of settings, including: community mental health charities, local cancer charities, private rehab centres and local children's services. I also work alongside Judith Sullivan and Associates in Leicestershire and Clarity Well-Being Clinic, North Warwickshire. Every one of these experiences has shaped me into the therapist I am today. In addition, my personal experiences have deeply impacted the insight I am able to bring to my work and my clients.
As a result, I understand what it feels like to have to overcome really hard things. I know what it feels like to have to manage difficult relationships, deal with loss, navigate major life transitions and cope with the overwhelming sensation of day to day stress. And I can relate to the pain and frustration that comes with addiction, bereavement and loss, anxiety, depression as well as sexuality and identity difficulties. It is hard to do these things alone.
