About me

I am a counselling psychologist registered with the HCPC UK. I have over 10 years experience in the field of addiction, trauma, stress, anxiety, depression and relationship issues. My experience ranges from working at both inpatient and outpatient NHS settings, community centres, charities and private organisations.

My practice the therapy cup is an exclusive therapy café, where each therapeutic session is designed specifically to fit the unique needs of my clients. The therapy cup intends to enhance the journey of self-discovery and growth by placing the client at the centre of this journey. My underlying approach is client centred which along with the core conditions includes being creative,flexible and adaptable. In the last few years I have enhanced my ability to work with issues such as compassion fatigue and 'feeling stuck in therapy'.

I offer a free telephone consultation so that my clients can decide if they perceive me as a therapist that would work with their expectations, so please contact me to arrange one.

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.
