About me

Everyone deserves to have a space where they can share their story while feeling safe accepted and heard. A space where you can be you. I will not judge you or your story. We all encounter difficulties in life,  some may feel more challenging then others to cope with alone. I offer a space where you can explore such struggles that may cause us to feel sad anxious and overwhelmed,  this could be a crisis that you are encountering now or a past experience that you are struggling with. It’s possible to work through this together. You do not have to tackle these alone. Maybe you are just looking for a space where you can explore your emotions to get a better understanding of yourself and grow. I will listen deeply and with compassion to understand who you are and what you are facing. All work is tailored to fit your needs as what you are going through is unique to you. I may offer you a different perspective while ensuring that you feel heard, validated and empowered.

I find working with the inner child can be really beneficial. It is a powerful tool that can help with trauma, dysfunctional patterns and harmful behaviours. I have found that this can really help with the healing process.

Therapy can help you overcome the struggles you are experiencing in life and come to a place of freedom where you are able to live your life with renewed hope.

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.
