About me

APPROACH
I am an experienced counsellor/psychotherapist with flexible working hours and I offer a sliding scale for people on low income and students.

My approach is to offer empathetic understanding and non-judgmental listening in a safe space.  Everyone is unique and therefore I draw on many different methods to suit each person's needs. My aim is to connect my client with their own inner resources through authenticity and self-empowerment.

I work with individuals and couples - short and long term therapy.

I am UKCP accredited (the professional body the regulates psychotherapists in the UK), DBS cleared and have regular 1:1 supervision.

BACKGROUND

Before training as a psychotherapist I worked for many years in broadcast and corporate television, event management and communications as a producer/director running my own production company. I worked for NGOs including Amnesty International and WWF and ran Greenpeace’s international film and video unit for five years. 

My corporate clients have included Bank of America/Merrill Lynch, Barclays, Coca-Cola, BG and BP, for whom I specialised in senior leadership communications.

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.
