About me

Coming to see me isn’t like a conventional experience of visiting the doctor or the dentist. Your emotional wellbeing is my priority and the time is yours to explore what’s going on in your life.

My counselling experience has spanned working with all age groups from 8 - 88, in settings ranging from primary schools to prison. The diversity of my experience means that I feel I can offer a genuinely non-judgemental space to all my clients.

Sometimes life can feel unbearable. Anxiety, depression, fear and low self esteem can eat away at you. On the outside you may smile and look like you’re functioning, but in reality you're just going through the motions.

It’s okay to stop and give yourself time to understand what’s happening. Talking with a trained professional can help you find your way through a difficult period in your life.

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.

Access for all can be arranged. Please call to discuss your requirements.
