On this about page I briefly cover my experience, qualifications, registration and fees.
I have 25 years’ varied experience as counsellor and psychotherapist in clinical, institutional and private practice settings. Currently I am also contracted to Relate Cambridge as Couples and Relationship counsellor in Stamford. Other noteworthy contracts and collaborations in this field include running my practice from a GP surgery for 6 years and working with the Truth and Reconciliation Commission in South Africa as co-ordinator of a charity chaired by the Rev Archbishop Desmond Tutu.
Some of the sections of this website reveal more about me than the explicit ‘vital statistics’: On the Homepage I refer to my approach to psychotherapy. On the Psychotherapy page I discuss my benchmarks of good therapy, inviting you to add some of your own and bring them to your sessions with me.
I hold Bachelor degrees in Law and Divinity, a Masters degree in Family Therapy (thesis on Online Therapy) and a PhD in Systemic Therapy and Mindfulness.
I hold a current enhanced DBS certificate.
As a Registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) I am suitably qualified, adhere to a professional Code of Ethics, all my work is supervised and I am enrolled for Continuing Professional Development.
Although I believe that my fees are a reasonable reflection of my training and experience as a psychotherapist, I am always open to discussing finances. I am sure we can come to an arrangement that will give you access to my services. I invite you to talk to me about it.
I offer half an hour online sessions at £40 and 1-hour online and in person sessions at £80. Generally psychotherapy/psychology fees in Stamford range between £40 and £120.
Some medical insurances will cover your therapy with me – please check with your insurer.
I welcome a brief initial exploratory conversation at no cost. Please contact me to arrange a time for such a conversation.
