Psychological therapy

Cognitive Assessment

I offer sessions online and in-person at a therapy clinic in Poole, Dorset. When you first make contact, I will offer a free no-obligation 20-minute phone consultation so we can learn a bit about each other and briefly discuss the challenges you are facing. You are welcome to ask me any questions to help you decide if we will work well together - I understand that therapy is a big investment so it is important to find the right fit. Equally, if I do not feel I am the best person to help, I will be happy to point you in the right direction.

We will meet for about an hour, usually weekly. In the first few sessions, we will go at your pace to get a deeper understanding of what has brought you to therapy, including the experiences you have lived through and patterns that might be holding you back.  We will also explore your values, goals, and personal strengths. This understanding enables us to develop a plan for therapy and identify which strategies might be most helpful for you.


The overall length of therapy can vary greatly, but most clients attend between 6-18 sessions.  We will have regular reviews to check we are on track and you are finding sessions helpful.

I have received training in a number of therapies, so can adapt my approach to suit you and your needs. I draw on principles from Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy, Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT), Systemic Therapy, and Motivational Interviewing (MI). 

I am unable to provide emergency or crisis support. Please see here for useful contacts if you require more immediate help. 



Individual therapy (self-funding): £110 per 60-minute session. Extended 90-minute sessions (often recommended for EMDR) are £150. 

I am also recognised with the health insurance providers shown below, and have agreed a Fee Schedule with them. This means 100% of the session fee is covered if your policy includes psychological therapy. 


I am able to offer a validated assessment of intelligence and cognitive ability for individuals aged 18+ using the Weschler Adult Intelligence Scale IV (WAIS IV).
