About me

Hello, I am down to earth, friendly and approachable.  As an experienced  accredited psychotherapeutic counsellor, I offer a warm, supportive, non judgmental and confidential space for you to explore your challenges, thoughts and feelings.  To gain a deeper understanding and insight, in order to reach decisions, make adjustments and plan for the future.  I draw on a number of different theories and tailor sessions to meet your individual needs.  I offer short and long term counselling with adults, couples, young people and children.  This can be in person or online.  Please feel free to contact me to arrange a free 20 min introductory session to see how we connect and for you to ask any questions you may have.
I am also a qualified and experienced Clinical Supervisor and offer clinical supervision and I am happy to offer a free 20 min meeting to explore our potential work together.

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.
