Chogyam Trungpa, Becoming A Full Human Being.

The basic work of health professionals, and of psychotherapists in particular, is to become full human beings and to inspire full human- beingness in other people who feel starved about their lives.

Short term online or telephone counselling or psychotherapy

 Limited day time individual sessions available.

Initially, people often come to counselling for brief periods to discuss a current concern.

It is important that you feel safe with me.  So all clients start with an initial consultation session of 50 minutes to an hour. Then, the next step is to make a weekly short commitment. This is flexible; usually 4 to 6 weeks. Towards the end of this, we review what you need. We then decide whether to continue, or to have a final session.


Longer term online or telephone psychotherapy, and body psychotherapy

It took a lifetime to build our habits and behaviours. As a result, some things take longer to understand and change. You may already know that you are looking for longer term psychotherapy. So, my clients have the opportunity to stay for longer periods to work more deeply and thoroughly. Consequently, this is the most effective way to really make fundamental changes. It takes time to develop how you relate with people, and to improve your confidence and mood, more permanently.

This course has enabled me to take control of my eating and treat myself with care. I am enjoying the success of learning how not to overeat, and the freedom this is bringing me. Shelley led the group with understanding, humour and compassion, and is a lovely, warm person, who I felt I could trust.



The Understanding your Eating Programme has helped my confidence, made me feel more powerful. I enjoyed the community spirit of the group and the strength I felt in working with strong women. I really enjoyed the final session about celebrating the positives in life, that is something which resonated for me.

Janet UYE Module 2


Attending Shelley‚Äôs ‘Understanding your Eating’ course was the most incredible and empowering experience that I have ever had. She really has taught me to understand my eating and I feel so free and alive!



I genuinely can’t believe how powerful the UyE Programme has been.¬† I had a light bulb moment during every session.¬† This is the first 6 weeks in my life that I haven’t binged!



Shelley brought together a group of strangers who became genuinely close companions during our sessions. I was reminded of how powerful women can be when they work together – sisters can conquer anything!

Janet UYE 5 week intro programme


Shelley gave me the support I’d needed for a very, very long time. I also got a deeper insight into how I deal with things and how to do things differently. I learnt to appreciate my strengths and what I already do well…I learnt how to look after myself better…It helped me adapt to a very limited life (due to disability).



The time I had in counselling with Shelley was useful in exploring problems and starting to develop coping strategies.



With Shelley I had an open comfortable environment in which I could explore the events and habits of old. This enabled me to challenge myself and my behaviours. It helped to support my state of mind through a very difficult time in my life.



I’m amazed at how I can be in such a different place now to where I was just a few weeks ago before working with Shelley
