About me

From time to time we all experience challenges, sometimes these can feel overwhelming and this is when counselling might be helpful. I am a person-centred counsellor based in Nairn and Inverness. My approach allows you to explore your issues and concerns in a safe, confidential and supported environment, and through this I believe you can overcome life difficulties and make positive changes for yourself. I have experience in working with people in a wide range of areas. I can offer weekday, evening and weekend appointments, both face to face and/or online counselling depending on your needs, I'm here to listen.

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.
