I am trained as an attachment based psychoanalytic psychotherapist. I completetd this training in 2011 and registered with the UKCP in 2015. Before this I trained and worked as a mental health nurse and cognitive behavioural therapist.

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.

Wheelchair user access

My consulting room is on the ground floor. There is one small step up to the front door and one in the hallway. Space for a wheelchair in the hall way and for motorized chair in the porch.
