About me

Do you feel as if you never fit in? Are you autistic, Aspergers or ADHD? Or do you suspect you might be? Or perhaps you are the parent or partner to someone who is (or suspected to be) autistic or ADHD? Do you struggle with socialising, making friends and coping with work colleagues? Do you feel constantly stressed?

As a late-diagnosed autistic person, I've been there too. I know what it's like to be different and feel like I don't fit in. I've also raised 3 autistic children, so know what it's like from the other end too. But talking about your problems with me can help. Together, we can figure out ways for you to cope and to feel better about yourself. 

If you're diagnosed, I can help you come to terms with your diagnosis. And if you're not diagnosed, but suspect you might be autistic or ADHD, I can help you weigh up the pros-and-cons of going for a formal diagnosis. And if you're just 'different', or a family member to someone who is autistic or ADHD, well I can help you with that too. 

Please note, I am only able to work with people over 16.

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.

I have access to fully wheelchair accessible premises. Please inform me if that is required. I can also work on Zoom or on the phone.
