About me


I am a fully accredited psychotherapist and can offer counselling to adults and young people in my private practice based just outside Walsall. UKCP accredited since 2011.

I work with individuals and couples on a variety of issues on a short and long term basis.

I can offer appointments Monday to Friday daytime and early evening and Saturday mornings. I can also do home visits within a 10 mile radius.

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.
