Counselling sessions for a healthier, happier life

At Lifestorm, I offer a warm, confidential and welcoming space for you, where you will be able to discuss your problems and difficulties. My counselling approach helps you to feel respected, understood and valued, and we will work together towards the changes you want in your life. The purpose of counselling is to help you, the client, recognise your strengths, discover the beliefs and emotions that could be restricting your emotional growth by talking openly and freely to someone who is impartial and emotionally free of entanglements. I offer counselling sessions online, by telephone and in the great outdoors. 

About Me

Founding Lifestorm in 2008, my training includes a British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) accredited Diploma in Humanistic Counselling based on Transactional Analysis. As a Registered Member of the BACP I adhere to the BACP Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy. Each month I spend time with a qualified supervisor who confidentially reviews my work as a counsellor. Other qualifications I hold include a Bachelor of Theology degree and a British Cycling Mountain Bike Leader Award (Level 2).

My counselling process: How I work

First Contact

You get in touch by phone or email for an introductory conversation about your situation/needs. We will arrange an initial meeting.

Initial Meeting

This initial short meeting (free) online via video call or by telephone allows us to further explore your situation/needs and to find out whether we are comfortable with one another and what our expectations are.

Therapy Sessions

Whether via video call, telephone, or walking outdoors, we will spend our time building a therapeutic relationship, exploring thoughts, feelings and behaviours whilst working towards a measured and satisfactory outcome.


The final session will allow us an opportunity to review the counselling journey and to bring therapy to an end.

Frequently Asked Questions

Online & Telephone Counselling: £50 per session.

Therapy Outdoors: £50 per session.

Online & telephone counselling sessions last 50 minutes, giving us sufficient time to establish a healthy and therapeutic relationship. Outdoor walking sessions will last at least an hour.

Ideally, my clients attend therapy on a weekly basis, usually at the same time and on the same day or evening. However I am able to accommodate those who require a more flexible approach. 

For all new clients, I offer a free 30 minute introductory session. This provides you with the opportunity to discover whether counselling is the right way forward, and to find out whether we are comfortable with each other and what our expectations are.

Yes, everything we discuss is strictly confidential. However, there are a number of exceptions including:

  • If a client discloses risk of serious harm to themselves or others
  • The prevention and detection of serious crime and terrorism
  • A court may order disclosure of documents, or information
  • A counsellor’s supervision sessions

At the outset we will agree to the terms of a therapy contract together and this will include a full disclosure of the exceptions.

I require at least 24 hours notice if you intend to cancel your session/change to a different day, or you will be charged at the full session fee.

I currently offer sessions by video call, telephone and/or therapy outdoors. If video calling or telephone session suits you best then you need is an internet connection, webcam, or good telephone signal. Your environment whilst online should offer guaranteed privacy for your comfort and confidentiality. If you are interested in therapy outdoors then we can talk while we walk. I offer this service within a radius of 18 miles from my location in Baughurst, Hampshire.
