About me

I have been involved in therapeutic work with adults and children for over 10 years.
Before training as a counselling therapist I was a therapeutic foster carer looking after children from newborn up to 16 years and also worked supporting parents with children who presented with challenging behaviour, developmental delays and anxiety. Over the years I developed an understanding of trauma and attachment and I continue to add to my knowledge.

Personal life experiences have taught me a deeper understanding of how childhood experiences impact on our adult lives and my interest in how people relate to each other, how implicit messages are conveyed and the outcomes or response they elicit developed as my knowledge, both academic and experiential, of narcissistic personality traits emerged. I now offer a specialised service to clients who have experienced abuse in a relationship with a narcissistic personality type.

I work as a trauma and attachment informed therapist integrating different modalities to suit the individual. I offer a client focused method tailored to suit the individual and their needs including WALKEASE which is a unique approach taking therapy out of the therapy room and into the open air.

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.
