About me

I am a qualified Counselling Psychotherapist with experience of working with clients with a wide range of issues, ranging from mild to severe difficulties. Reaching out for help is not always easy and finding the right counsellor can seem overwhelming.

I am a trained professional but also a down to earth person who is capable and approachable. I can help you identify your problems and assist you in finding the best ways to cope with the situation by changing behaviours that contribute to the problem, or by finding constructive ways to deal with a situation that is beyond your personal control.

You will be offered an initial assessment/consultation because I believe it's important that you feel safe and comfortable enough, to be honest, and open with me, counselling can be challenging and you need to feel ready.

Training, qualifications & experience

I hold an Advanced Diploma in Counselling and Psychotherapy. I am a registered practitioner with the National Counselling Society.

In addition, I work over a long-term period with many clients. These clients may need a longer-term therapy approach due to the chronic nature of their difficulties. Many of these people have experienced difficulties in childhood or started to experience difficulties as a result of a traumatic event/s, as a result, are now struggling with relationships, with others or with themselves.

I offer a free telephone consultation to explore what issues/challenges you may have.

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.
