About me

I am a qual­i­fied Integrative and Cognitive Behavioural Coun­sel­lor who has train­ing and expe­ri­ence in a vari­ety of different coun­selling mod­els. After many years of expe­ri­ence in coun­selling, I under­stand that peo­ple can get stuck in their lives and need some­one to help them get free from the shack­les of the emo­tional pain they are expe­ri­enc­ing. I have been pas­sion­ate about coun­selling for many years and truly believe it can help to empower peo­ple to effec­tively change their lives.

My approach is eclec­tic, which enables me to meet the par­tic­u­lar needs of each client. I am fully aware of how hard it can be for peo­ple to take the first step into coun­selling. I will endeav­our to make the ses­sions as com­fort­able and relaxed as pos­si­ble in a safe, con­fi­den­tial and sup­port­ing environment.

Please text, call or e mail to arrange a free telephone consultation to ensure you feel I am the right person to help you. I will give free advice and suggestions of other help if you decide not to work with me.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have rich and diverse qualifications in counselling which I feel enables me to work with a wide range of people. I have 15 years experience of working in the caring sector and training to become a qualified counsellor. Alongside counselling I work in schools consulting on mental health which involves training teachers, working 1:1 with students, in particular those with Autism, ADHD and other learning difficulties.

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.
