About me

I have been working as a therapist since 1996. I work in an integrative way; attending to the multiple aspects of self: emotions, intellect, somatic (body-physical), social, creative, and when relevant spiritual aspects of self. I specialize in working with trauma (PTSD), complex trauma (childhood and developmental trauma), including anxiety and depression and relational issues.

I work with individual adults as well as couples. When working with couples I work from an EFT (Emotionally Focused Therapy) model, which is based on Sue Johnson's research/model.

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.
