I’m not sure what to expect?

If you've never had sessions with a therapist before, you may be worried about what to expect. Generally, people feel greatly relieved that they’ve made this decision – it’s the first step in resolving what is worrying you, and will help you move forward to a much happier future.


​I am an Integrative therapist; this means I have a lot of experience and training in different techniques of therapy.

In our sessions, I will ask you helpful questions so that you can explore what is troubling you without feeling judged. This will help you more clearly identify the patterns and belief systems that are playing out in your life.

Along with our conversations, I’ll teach you specific tools and techniques to help you overcome your problems. These are lifelong tools which you can take away and practice by yourself.

I also sometimes offer homework worksheets for you to take away and fill in.

These are very useful for identifying unhelpful habits of thinking and behaving and to start practising more helpful ways of being.

What qualifications and experience do you have?

I’ve been helping people for over 25 years. I have training in several different therapies, as below.

• Honours Degree in Applied Psychology

Do you provide extra resources?

Absolutely, extra resources are an integral part of what I give to my clients

The Membership

As part of your therapy, you have free Client Level Membership to the website.

Here you can login and access resources which accompany our therapeutic work, as well as extra materials for your general interest.

These include worksheets, videos, audios, suggested reading materials. You will also have access to Discount Codes which enable you to purchase the paid courses - free of charge.

People very often find these additional resources an invaluable help. They can be an integral part of overcoming what is troubling you and learning new skills for the happier, and more confident, future you.

How long are the sessions?

Sessions are for 1 hour. This is longer than standard counselling and therapy sessions which are 45- 50 minutes In my experience a full hour works well for clients. This is reflected in the fee.

I can also offer 90-minute sessions if this is a better fit for your schedule.

How much will my sessions cost?

per individual session

​€

9​5.00

​​block of 6 sessions

​€

​510.00

​block of 12 sessions

​€

​99​5.00

How often will I have the sessions?

This is very much dependent on what is troubling you, your availability and your budget. 

If you have a pressing issue, you may like to start with sessions once or twice per week, then attend less frequently.
Some clients prefer to attend fortnightly, monthly or even every six weeks. We can discuss this and I can help you decide which will be the best option for you.

Why would I want to book a block of sessions?

Apart from the discount, booking a block of sessions can be helpful for your progress. It gives you a sense of continuity, and feeling focused on exploring your issues as an ongoing process.

However, if you prefer to book your sessions one by one, that is perfectly fine too.

Where are you located?

I am in Lagos, Algarve, Portugal. I will send you details when you book your first appointment

You can visit me in person, or we can have sessions using Skype, Zoom or a camera app of your choice
