About me

I am an experienced Psychotherapist, Counsellor and Supervisor working for the NHS, Gloucestershire Occupational Health and in private practice, in the Cotwolds. I provide a calm and secure place for personal reflection- a space to work through difficulties and problems, discretely and in a beautiful rural setting.

I am an Integrative therapist - this means I allow the individuals needs to inform the way in which we work together. I do pay special attention to the way relationships from the past impact on our lives, as well as finding practical ways of coping with stressful and challenging situations.

As well as my private practice I am a tutor on the MA programme at Bath Centre for Psychotherapy and Counselling.

Accessibility

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.
