Counselling will focus on you, away from life pressures or responsibilties to others. One or two sessions or even the occasional drop-in session may be enough for you.

Or perhaps you wish to work on specific hurdles (6-12) sessions to get back on track.


Sometimes difficulties can be more complex. Having the option of longer term or open ended therapy (12 sessions or more) may be more suitable for you. 

Psychotherapy can help you to understand deeper emotional and psychological issues that may be holding you back. It can reveal hidden aspects or engrained negative patterns of relating to self or others due to memories, trauma or abuse. 

Picking Up the Pieces can help you to move forward in a more positive way, bring about positive change and rediscover the lost you.

Online or Telephone Counselling

An accessible service to those unable to leave home through illness or caring commitments

 which prevent you from accessing appropriate supportive networks when you are struggling. 

Picking up the Pieces is here for you but if you don't try you will never know.

Services Offered

Initial Consultation

 An initial consultation of 30 minutes-free of charge 


This gives me the opportunity to assess your needs and to see if the service I have to offer would be suitable for you without obligation.

It also gives you the opportunity to see if you connect to me as this forms the basis of any therapeutic work that we may embark upon. 

If you feel there is no connection or I feel that other services or intervention would suit your present needs more adequately I will of course be happy to signpost or refer you to these.

Counselling & Psychotherapy

Prices start from £40 per hour- short or long term therapy whether face-to-face or on-line

Picking Up The Pieces offers concessions to full time university students, carers and reduced rates to counselling trainees

It is not my normal policy to charge for late cancellations as things can crop up. Just let me know as soon as you can so my time can be offered to somebody else who wants to Pick Up The Pieces with counselling & psychotherapy

Online & telephone Counselling

This service gives accessibility options to those who otherwise would not be able to access supportive services due to ill health, caring commitments or working away from home.  It also gives continuity to those that have worked with me before should they require a drop in session to refocuss and get back on track.
