About me

Are you worried about your child? Do they get overwhelmed at home, or with schoolwork or friendships? Are you concerned that they might be struggling with new changes in your family, or with pressure from elsewhere?

It’s painful to see your child exhibit bursts of anger, become withdrawn, lose their confidence or worry excessively, and it can often be difficult to know where to start in getting support for them.

I help children and teenagers to understand and work through difficult feelings they are struggling with. By making sense of what is happening to them and learning tools to cope, they will feel more in control and more like themselves again.

More information about how I can help your child can be found on my website.

Alternatively please get in touch if you have any questions, or to book an appointment, on 07894858677 or email me.

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.

Wheelchair user access

Please let me know if you require wheelchair access and I can book an accessible room at the clinic for your sessions.
