I work with individuals on a wide range of issues, and have a particular interest in working with traumatic events, whether in childhood or adulthood. I also can help with health challenges, family relationships, gender issues and work-related stress. Counselling can be short term (2-8 sessions) or longer term. Please call, text or email for an initial appointment.

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.
