About me

Hello. I am a registered Psychotherapist (UKCP). I offer a confidential space to talk if you're feeling stuck, overwhelmed or can't see a way forward. It's also a place to explore changing things in your life.

I have particular interest in supporting people with relationship problems, childhood trauma and abuse, bereavement, self-esteem, direction in life, and spiritual issues. I have experience of working with these issues and with the following issues: Stress; depression; domestic violence; workplace problems; stages of life; and personality disorder.

My training is Integrative. This means that I have been trained in a model which sees common features across all schools of psychotherapy and counselling and which sees relationships as central to psychological health. My qualifications are listed below. My principal qualification is Clinical Diploma in Integrative Psychotherapy (completed 2015). I have experience of working in the private and voluntary sector.

I adhere to the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy's Ethical Principles and Code of Professional Conduct.

Accessibility

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.
