About me

Hi, I am an integrative therapist which means that I use different modalities of counselling depending on the clients needs, specialising in CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) in the treatment of;

  • Depression
  • Anxiety,Addictions
  • Relationship Problems
  • Low Self-Esteem
  • Stress
  • Bereavement
  • and many more.

In a safe, secure and confidential environment I will facilitate you in gaining an understanding of your problems through identifying your thoughts,moods, behaviours, and physical reactions in small situations as well as during major events in your life. You will learn to test the meaning and usefulness of different thoughts you have during the day and change the thinking patterns that keep you locked into dysfunctional moods, behaviours or relationship interactions that are not serving you. In addition you will learn how to make changes in your life when your thoughts are alerting you to problems that need to be solved, in the hope that at the end of your therapy you will go on to become your own therapist.

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.
