About me

Many people’s lives have been dramatically affected by the Covid-19 pandemic and we are all learning to adapt. As a result, you may be feeling vulnerable, distressed or overwhelmed. Like some of my clients, you might be grappling with changes in home life, work pressures or unemployment. Sadly, you may have lost loved ones and be grieving in unusual circumstances.

Whether in connection with the coronavirus pandemic or not, sometimes we feel lost and struggle to cope with life's difficulties. Taking the first step to contact a therapist can feel really difficult and so I’d like you to know that our therapeutic 'space' is safe and non-judgemental.

I believe in therapy as a joint venture, where we work together to increase awareness about what is troubling you. Through this process we can understand underlying issues and how these may affect your behaviour and thinking. This in turn enables you to change unwanted patterns and make better informed decisions in the future. Our main focus is your day-to-day 'here and now' experience of the issue rather than the past.

Please feel free to contact me to ask any questions or arrange a single introductory session. I look forward to hearing from you.

Key details

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.

Please let me know if accessibility is a factor and I will book a ground floor room. There is one step before the front door threshold.
