About me

I am a queer friendly, neuro-diverse friendly practitioner with 15 years' experience seeing clients for a wide range of issues.  I work existentially which means that I don't label, diagnose or pathologise your experiences.  Life is challenging for all of us and I help clients discover their own meanings and resources.  You are the expert on your life and you already have within you everything you need to face your current challenges.

I have experience in a wide range of areas, but have a particular interest in those experiencing discrimination due to gender, sexuality, neuro-diversity or disability, workplace bullying and mobbing, and those who are experiencing or have experienced narcissistic abuse in their family of origin or romantic relationships.

Health and Care Professions Council

The HCPC are an independent, UK-wide health regulator. They set standards of professional training, performance and conduct for 16 professions.

They keep a register of health professionals who meet their standards, and they take action if registered health professionals fall below those standards. They were created by a piece of legislation called the Health Professions Order 2001.

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.
