About me

My role is to help you find solutions and ways of dealing with the situations that matter to you and that are impacting your life daily. Therapy is a process and can lead to real changes and deep lasting transformations for you.

I am an integrative therapist which means I use lots of different methods to support you in achieving your goals. I have experience in helping people who have faced difficulties including, low self-worth/self-esteem, anxiety, loss, trauma, stress, lack of trust, grief, anger, relationship issues and conflict, depression, but this list is not exhaustive.

I offer you a safe and supportive environment which enables us to explore your difficulties.  We work together at your pace, finding the best way forward for you. I can assure you a confidential and empathic service, free from judgement so that we can explore what is happening and help you work towards your growth and change.

As a member of the National Counselling Society, I abide by the professional standards set out in the NCS Ethical Framework for Counsellors and Psychotherapists and can provide both short-term and long-term counselling to individuals including evening and weekend appointments.

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.
