About me

I really enjoy conversational change work and helping people feel better. I have over 25 years experience in mental health and well-being. I have specialist experience in rehabilitation and have worked in primary care including medicine, drug addiction and prisons.

I am offering online sessions only for your comfort and convenience.

Rapid recovery is possible with the right support. I enjoy helping people cope with distressing thoughts, emotions and behaviours.

My approach to psychological therapy is summarised in this Youtube Video:

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.
