What my clients say

Sessions were always invaluable. A time where we’d have frank conversations about the issues I brought to the table. Her experience and down to earth approach made for open honest chats and these helped me no end, both at work and outside of work. (Charlie W)

I can’t thank you enough for the work you did with me. I feel your help was so beneficial to me. I was in a bit of a state when I first met you, but you gave me the tools to move on and sort things out. I am doing really well now. (Matthew W)

My Questions

Can I use private health insurance?

Yes… if you have health insurance you can speak to them to get a code. If you give them the name of your Therapist of choice they will give you a code. If you fill in the code when booking we will bill your insurer for your sessions.

You can’t pay for LifeCoaches or your membership subscription with your health insurance… sorry.
