About me

I am a counsellor and psychotherapist trained in Transactional Analysis. I come from a hospital based background with a BSc in Nutrition and Dietetics. Like many good therapists my interest in psychotherapy grew through my own personal experience.

I have a deep interest in the connection between physical and emotional health and 30 years experience in the healthcare field.

I am a member of UKATA and abide by their code of ethics and professional practice.

I can help you when:

you want to explore emotional issues in a safe and non-judgemental space

you want to talk about personal confidential matters with someone who isn't directly involved but can offer support

you find it hard to pinpoint what the issue is and you need time and support to work it out

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.

Wheelchair user access Unspecified
