About me

Counsellor, Clinical Supervisor and Mental Well-being Consultant

Welcome! I offer counselling to people of all ages dealing with relationship and issues, stress, anxiety, addictions, trauma, abuse and depression. I am experienced  in working with domestic violence, self-harm and problematic substance use. With a significant mental health background, I can support people with long term mental health challenges. I am a qualified clinical supervisor with extensive training and mentorship experience. I support people looking to adopt fresh diverse perspectives, reviewing life plans and embarking on new journeys. I am trained as an integrated practitioner and my practice is founded on transformative ideas about relational growth, creativity and developing potential.

Key details

DBS check

In England and Wales, the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS, formerly known as CRB) carry out criminal records checks for individuals working with vulnerable groups, such as children. To find out more, visit gov.uk , or contact this professional directly

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.

At present my counselling is being offered remotely by phone and video
