About me

If life is feeling too much for you and you are struggling to cope and find a way forward it can help to talk to a psychotherapist or counsellor who is trained to listen to you in an effective and non-judgmental way. I am an experienced psychotherapist and counsellor. I meet with clients at at my home in Stone, Staffordshire.

I am an integrative psychotherapist and this means that I draw from several theories and techniques, allowing your individual needs to inform the way we work together. I aim to work in a way that helps you to understand why you are struggling, paying attention to the way relationships and events have impacted your life, while finding practical ways of dealing with the stress and problems.

Making an initial contact can be difficult. I am happy for you to telephone or email, whichever is easier, to discuss whether I can help you.

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.
