About me

I offer a warm, empathetic and confidential service to adults, adolescents and children. I'm an approachable Counsellor who can offer a safe, non-judgemental space for you to work through the thoughts and feelings that are troubling or distressing you.

I aim to ensure you feel as comfortable to talk about your issues as you can, to feel listened to, supported, accepted, and able to work through your issues, at your pace.  Personal trauma, small or big, past, present, one off incidents or long-term/ongoing, can have an immense detrimental impact on our confidence, self-esteem, ability to think, cope & relax and lead to living with worry,  anxiety, stress, low mood & depression. It can be held in our bodies and manifest which can have a negative impact on seemingly normal situations and on family,  friendships & colleagues. You may be unsure about counselling and whether it can help. You may feel you have no reason to be feeling the way you feel, or it may be that others have suggested counselling might be something that could help you. Feel free to give me a call to discuss this and/or book a free half hour introductory/initial session.

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.
