About me

Seeing a therapist doesn't mean there's something 'wrong with you', it means now is the right time to work through some of your emotions, or to work through a traumatic experience. You may want to challenge your negative thinking patterns or gain some clarity in a particular area of your life. You may feel you're ready to learn new techniques, which will enable you to cope better with every day life. You may want to focus on personal growth but feel unsure how to do this.

It can often feel scary, nerve wracking and sometimes overwhelming talking to a complete stranger, and it's natural to feel that way. I provide a friendly, non-judgemental & safe environment within a warm, comfortable, and inviting counselling room for you to the space and time you need to focus on you.

Person-centred counselling is a non-directive client lead talking therapy where sessions provide you with a safe and confidential place to talk.

I work with individuals (aged 13 +) who present with a variety of issues from exam stress, anxiety, depression, peer pressure, bereavement, infidelity, friendship issues, current or historic abuse (sexual or domestic) and family relationships.

I'm situated close to junction 4 of the M18, with off-road parking.

I attend supervision once a month and I'm a registered accredited member of the National Counselling Society.

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.
