About me

I am a Child and Adolescent Psychotherapist. I work with children, adolescents, parents, families, groups and adults. I currently work in private practice and also within the Childrens Emotional Wellbeing and Mental Health Service (previously CAMHS) in South Essex providing assessments and therapeutic support. My approach is integrative and client focussed. I provide a confidential, safe space to explore whatever it is that you may be finding difficult. I support and work with a wide range of difficulties. For more information on what to expect from sessions and how the process works please visit holdingmind.com. I would be more than happy to have an initial telephone conversation to answer any questions you may have.

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.
