About me

I offer every session with a warm, sensitive and confidential approach, as I take pride in understanding in-depth the issues that are having an impact on your life. We will work together, so you won't feel alone and feel comfortable in our sessions. I give all my attention to help each client to see potential in themselves in our sessions.

I provide a non-judgemental service to every client. It is important for me as a counsellor to provide a safe environment to help with any issues that may be presented in the counselling room. Examples of theories I use are Person-Centred, CBT and psychodynamic. I believe it is important to provide such approaches as everyone is unique, and their journey in counselling will be my priority.

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.
