About me

I am friendly, approachable and non-judgemental. My practice is devoted to creating a reflective space where you can make meaningful contact with who you are and what you are experiencing. Attention to our inner lives requires respect and courage yet fosters greater understanding, healing, growth, and the making of a more fulfilling life.

Sometimes we have things that trouble us and we need help to resolve them. If we do not make time to seek help, the things that trouble us can become part of our everyday lives, part of who we are, making us unhappy or anxious and stop us functioning as we might. We may feel overwhelmed at times, with a profound effect not just on ourselves but also those around us. I welcome the opportunity to see if I can be of help.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have experience in working with a wide variety of areas including but not limited to: relationship problems, self-esteem, sexuality, anxiety, depression, existential crisis, sexual issues, suicide ideation, attachment, abuse, loneliness, addiction, gender identity, loss, bereavement, trauma, bullying, work difficulties, and family issues.

I am a UKCP member.

  • BSc in Integrative Counselling - Middlesex University
  • Advanced Diploma in Integrative Counselling

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.
