About me

I have been a therapist for 18 years. Initially qualified as a Psychodynamic and Humanistic Counsellor and later as a Family, Couple and Systemic Psychotherapist.

Through continuous professional development I have the advantage of using a collection of theoretical ideas, skills and experiences to inform my practice and provide the best intervention for my clients. I am a flexible, dedicated, reliable, passionate and committed Psychotherapist and (Approved) Clinical Supervisor who will work with whatever you decide to bring to the sessions and together we will find the most useful and effective ways forward. I am a member UKCP (United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy) and abide by their code of practice.

Relationship therapy centred work is inspired by my passion for therapeutic communication/relational connections and seeing the difference that such work can and have made to people’s lives.

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.
