About me

I am a professionally qualified and very experienced counsellor and psychotherapist. My experience gained over 30 years has included working in the private, public and charity sectors and has brought me into contact with a wide range of clients that have included, at one end of the scale, well-functioning individuals who have become overwhelmed by life events and at the other, individuals with severe and enduring difficulties who struggle to manage the inevitable challenges that life brings.

Whatever has brought you to think about therapy, you are welcome to contact me by telephone or e mail. I will try to arrange a telephone conversation with you within a few days, during which we will discuss what has prompted your enquiry and, if appropriate, to arrange an initial session when we will discuss in more detail the nature of your difficulties and the best way forward for you. This may be a small number of sessions to address a particular problem and help you to get back on track or, it may be longer-term therapy that will address the underlying issues that are preventing you from living your life to the full. If for any reason you do not feel I am the right person to help you, I will always do my best to suggest someone else.

I am currently offering both in-person and online sessions.

Key details

DBS check

In England and Wales, the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS, formerly known as CRB) carry out criminal records checks for individuals working with vulnerable groups, such as children. To find out more, visit gov.uk , or contact this professional directly

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.
