Counselling Degree and Masters Degree. Registered and Accredited

About me

I am a qualified and registered counsellor and work with people in many areas including addiction, grief, depression, anxiety and trauma. We all struggle with the ups and downs of life at times. I believe that through meaningful and purposeful conversation, in a non-judgmental environment, you can become free of what holds you back and find the path to true happiness.

I am very passionate about my work and especially how human connection can help people mend from past pain.

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.

Some of my locations are wheelchair accessible.
