About me

I believe that everyone has the skills within them to move forward in life and increase their resilience. I offer a non-judgemental safe space to talk about your problems and find a way forward together. Whether you're feeling overwhelmed, stressed, down or lost, I can help you find a way to progress. While I use practical tools to help manage moods and behaviours, I allow plenty of space to explore emotions and how they drive what we do.

I work with a wide variety of people and issues including anxiety, depression, substance misuse, work/school/life stress, relationship and personal problems, neurodiversity and chronic health issues.

Training, qualifications & experience

I graduated with my Diploma in Counselling and Groupwork: A Cognitive Behavioural Approach in 2017 and have been in private practice since then. I have worked with a variety of people and issues including anxiety, depression, relationship and personal problems, neurodiversity and chronic health issues. I am a COSCA Practitioner Member, and hold Provisional Accreditation Membership of BABCP.

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.
