Further information

I started out as a psychologist and applied myself in research and psychometrics. I retain a keen interest in the neurosciences because of my training in physiology.
I am able to apply cognitive-behavioural methodology in short term, solution-focussed work and work for several agencies which deal with post-traumatic stress symptoms. Further training in energy psychology methods as well as EMDR has enhanced my ability to deal with the debilitating effects of PTSD. I am equally available for long - term, exploratory psychotherapy which focuses on the therapeutic relationship and dealing with existential life issues.

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.
