Work with me...
At the bottom of this page is a contact box where you can tell me how you would like me to help you. Please do get in touch.
Each client is different, and so the way I work with you won't be a one-size fits all approach.
I work from my private therapy room in central Leatherhead, or Alcheme Wellbeing in Surbiton, or online. You may feel you will completely miss something by working online, but you'd be surprised; I have some clients I have never met in person!
To determine the best way we can work together, a great starting point is to have a chat, understand where you are and where you'd like to be. From there we can determine how I can help and which methods/combinations would best suit you.
Here are a couple of examples of who I work with and how:
For general anxiety and anxiety disorders I would suggest solution focused hypnotherapy and psychotherapy as a starting point. By anxiety disorders I mean things like: panic attacks, phobias, fears, unhelpful thinking patterns, anger, OCD, PTSD, social anxiety, exam anxiety, anxiety related to menopause, ADHD and autism (my approach will be different with each of these) and so on.
The same goes for anxiety related eating, shopping or drinking patterns - often there is anxiety behind the way we do these things.
For teen anxiety (exams, friendships, coping with neurodivergence etc.) there are two paths, 1. coaching, and 2. a mixture of coaching and solution focused therapy/hypnotherapy. This creates a safe space for a teen to share their challenges but also find ways forward and solutions to their problems. The additional benefit of including hypnosis into the mix is that it calms the mind, and introduces them to the practice of self-guided relaxation.
For burnout, I would also suggest joining my 12 week Burnout to Brilliance programme. We will work on the anxiety/stress/exhaustion first to re-set your nervous system, and then moving to coaching once you are strong enough to work on a new pathway forward.
For performance related issues, including sports performance, being on stage, exam anxiety, public speaking etc., I would suggest solution focused therapy and hypnotherapy. I have had clients with depression who found it difficult to get out of bed or make decisions, but as their condition improved they felt ready to look to the future and wanted to include coaching tools as well.
So you can see how it depends on where you're at, and you will know when you are ready to take a different step forward. The best course of action is for us to have a chat, get started and see how things unfold - and be ready for positive change!
Sessions start at £80 depending on the length of the session/how we work together. Discounts are available for blocks of six. Our initial consultation is £65.
Unless it's a specific phobia you are likely to need between six and twelve sessions, sometimes more.
I take on a small number of cases per month for those unable to afford my fees, NHS /uniformed workers and teachers. These sessions are charged at 50%.
