About me

Counselling is often the first opportunity you might have had to talk to someone who is not a family member or a friend; I’m someone who isn’t already a part of your life and so it can be easier in this relationship to share yourself honestly.
Therapy is a relationship of trust and respect. By actively listening to you, and genuinely trying to understand who you are and accepting you, it is my hope that you can get to a place of self-acceptance. This process is different for everyone, and I work both short and long term with clients. Person Centred therapy is non-directive, meaning I will not rush your process or judge what you share; I’m here to find the answers you already have, not impart my own. Working empathically and holistically, you are free to find your own way, your authentic self. When we feel more confident with who we are, it is easier to manage and cope with life.

I work online and face-to-face with adult clients in a private and confidential setting.

My aim is to provide a therapeutic environment in which we can work together, safely exploring emotionally difficult and complex personal issues.

I understand the importance of finding the right person to work with and offer a free initial telephone or online consultation with no obligation to continue afterwards. Here I can share more about how I work; you can share what brings you to counselling and we can decide together if we are a good fit. It takes courage to acknowledge you need to talk to a professional practitioner and you’ve just made the first move.

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.
