About me

I have worked as a psychotherapist for over 15 years and have experience of working with adults, children and families.

I have extensive experience in working with children and young people in private practice and as a consultant within schools and fostering agencies for more than 18 years.

I provide clinical supervision with those working within the profession and also supervision within organisations. I run process groups within fostering agencies, providing a better understanding of the client groups they are working with and I provide a clinical overview of organisations to monitor staff and client well-being.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
