About me

What I do is called Person-Centred counselling. I work face-to-face with adult individuals and couples in a private and confidential setting, for short-term or long-term work. My aim is to provide a therapeutic environment in which we can work together, safely exploring any emotionally difficult and / or complex personal issues.

By actively listening to you, and genuinely trying to understand and fully accept who you are, a therapeutic relationship can form. With an effective rapport established, in which you are neither judged nor pushed but instead supported and encouraged, you are free to find your own way.

Key details

DBS checked
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.

Accessible toilets in the building. Access only during normal working hours.
