About me

Please email me with a query - leave your number and I will definitely call you back.

Hello - I am a counsellor and psychotherapist. I have been working in the field for many years and thoroughly enjoy my work. I am enthusiastic about meeting new people and empowering change within them. I feel passionate about the improvements people are able to make in order to 'be better'. I will also be offering you the option of bringing therapy to you - as i will be able to travel to bring the service to you. I understand that sometimes people feel nervous about counselling and do not often make it to their appointments out of fear. Therefore, I will help you by eliminating that worry by coming to you.

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.
