About me

I am an integrative counsellor. I work on a relationship based on trust, acceptance and non-judgement. From this foundation, using various therapeutic tools, I can help you to understand and question outmoded beliefs, conditions or rules that once served you but no longer fit. If you have a yearning for change but are not sure where to start, counselling can help by acting as an agent or catalyst for change.   Change can be scary, it can also be very empowering. When we let go of our old beliefs we open the way for new even exciting things to happen. Change doesn't have to be a slow or long process, it can be quick and effective.

My belief is that everyone has the right to be happy. As a counsellor, my role is to help you on your path to well being. To provide a safe place for you to befriend unwanted thoughts, feelings and emotions that have been suppressed and to tend to them with compassion, kindness and love.

When we are in distress we can find it difficult to express how we really feel. We may feel hopeless. In these desperate times, a counsellor can be your hope - like a lighthouse in your darkest days guiding you home to safety - the safety of discovering your true self.

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.
