About me

My background of many years’ experience, in palliative care nursing directed me to qualify and practice as a person-centered integrative counsellor/ psychotherapy with an interest in loss grief and bereavement and the complex issues we feel.

I have worked for Cruse bereavement as a volunteer since 2017 and a local GP surgery supporting patients with symptoms of loss, grief, bereavement and other issues that might be challenging to self-esteem or, causing symptoms of mental and physical stress: - headaches, poor sleep, irritability, social isolation.

Sometimes we can just feel overwhelmed with difficult emotions that might not be related to any specific event and feel powerless to change them.

We will explore your internal thoughts and feelings and personal challenges using an integration of approaches suitable for you personally. My central focus is to offer a space and time that is welcoming, judgement-free, professional and safe, to work with the many different and diverse reasons why people may choose to talk with a therapist.

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.
