About me

You may feel that you are stuck in a situation and cannot see a clear way through.

Counselling can help you talk about stresses, anxieties and other problems in your life in order to cope better in difficult circumstances.

I am a registered and fully accredited counsellor with ACC and all my work is carried out in accordance with their ethical guidelines. I have had many years of experience as teacher, pastoral carer, mentor, and counsellor.

I offer a safe, non-judgemental and confidential space, working alongside you. My approach is person centred, integrative and creative - tailored to meet the needs of each individual client.

I work with both adults and youth (DBS cleared).

Your first 30 minute appointment is free in order to explore whether counselling is the way forward for you. Subsequent 1 hour sessions are £35 - reduced rates available.

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.
