About me

Your possibly feeling overwhelmed, emotional, confused and worried about how you are thinking, feeling and if you are ever going to get "better". Anxious about talking to a stranger, particularly about something so personal to you, and maybe low because you need to do this.

Hi I'm Carol, I know choosing the right counsellor for you can be one of the hardest decisions you can make when you are struggling. I'd would like to say how brave I think you are in taking this first step, it takes a lot of courage to admit that you may not be able to do it alone and need a little help to get you where you want to be.

I have experience with many different different individual needs but I specialise in anxiety, and stress. I can help you better understand why you are thinking and feeling the way you do at the moment and find ways to overcome those difficulties in order to live the life you aspire to. You don't have to feel like this if you don't want to.

I know it can be hard to reach out to someone and ask them for help. Maybe you feel that it makes you appear weak, that you can "just get over it", but if you know deep down you can't do it alone then I am here for you, give me a call or drop me a message

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.

I have Walk and Talk routes that are wheelchair friendly and for people who maybe less mobile
