I offer a safe and accepting space to explore the issues which may be impacting on you. I am an experienced Person-Centred Counsellor/Psychotherapist, Clinical Supervisor and EMDR Therapist who has over 17 years experience of working with individuals from the age of 18 years.

I work in private practice as well as an associated psychotherapist for a number of Employee Assisted Providers and Healthcare Providers as well as clients who self refer.  I offer short term and longer term counselling to clients.

My main practice is in the centre of Coventry, (5 minute walk from Coventry train station). I also see clients in Knowle in Solihull.

Key details

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.
