About me

I am an accredited and very experienced Cognitive Behavioural Therapist who specialises in working with children, young people and parents using a CBT approach. CBT is particularly helpful for all types of anxiety, low mood/depression, low self esteem, obsessive compulsive disorder and post traumatic stress disorder. I have worked within children and adolescent mental health services within the NHS for around 20 years and can support with a wide range of emotional and behavioural difficulties. I offer a free telephone consultation which provides the opportunity for you to find out more about what I can offer and whether it is right for you.

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.
