Pay what you can for counselling sessions



I offer a fee structure to suit you. You pay what you can afford, ensuring therapy is mutually affordable for both of us. The sessions are an hour long and my standard rates are £45 an hour. However, I know that sometimes income is limited so I will work with you to agree a price that suits you. I generally ask that you come on board for two sessions at the full rate first. The initial session is always free of charge. Contact me to find out more about affordable psychotherapy and counselling.

Mindfulness-based yoga and meditation in Stafford

I have been teaching yoga and mindfulness for over 13 years and am BWY qualified (Yoga Academy) and a Satyananda certified yoga teacher. I have done over 500 hours of core training in gaining my teacher training diplomas. I studied buddhism from my early 20s find the path of soto zen and in my mid 30s found raja yoga. I have been initiated as a sanyassin (seeker) by Swami Niranjananda in Bihar, India.

My approach to yoga is informed by the classical system of Satyananda yoga and inspired by my own experience of the power of yoga to change my life in a deep and transforming way. I incorporate yogic influences as an integral part of my psychotherapy and counselling work. This might involve yoga psychotherapy, gentle seated yoga postures, breathing practices, and yoga nidra, a deep relaxation technique aimed at relaxing both the body and the mind.

Yoga psychotherapy helps you develop a deeper connection to yourself and reconnect body and mind to release deep emotional and physical tensions. It promotes wholeness through working on the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual bodies by employing mind, body and energy.
