About me

I have 26 years experience as an integrative counsellor and psychotherapist.

I have worked in private practice and in the public sector with clients and couples. Presenting issues include relationship and family problems, workplace difficulties, bullying, emotional management.

I have specialised training and experience of working with clients with alcohol and drug problems and family members. I also work in the wider addiction field with issues such as gambling, co-dependency and sex and love addiction. I also work with clients with eating disorders and family members.

I trained and worked for some years with clients with a chronic or terminal disability or illness, and family members.

I also supervise trainee counsellors, qualified practitioners - individual and group.

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.
