About me

Sometimes we find ourselves at a loss on how to move forwards. Maybe we've got stuck in a rut or experienced something which has thrown us, or perhaps we're not entirely sure why we're feeling the way we are. Whatever the reason, counselling can be a way to talk through these issues (even if you're not sure what they are yet).

I offer a safe and empathic space to work with adults or children in one-to-one counselling either at a quiet space in Eyke or Albany Villa in Melton. Free from judgment, we will work together to explore what you want or need your life to be, how to get there and where the origins of your problems or hindrances may lay.

Each and every one of us is unique and has our own story and only by listening to that and offering a therapeutic space for exploration can I help you on your way to clarity, change or solutions that you come up with. As I don't offer CBT, I tend not to give you homework and I also don't offer you suggestions on how to change. I'm not an expert on you; you are. But together we can go about making changes you want in order to progress.

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.

There is no wheelchair access at Albany Villa in Melton
