My practice is based in Aston on Trent, very near to Derby (South Derbyshire) and easily accessible from junction 24 of the M1 and the A50. My counselling room is located on the first floor. Parking is available.

Further information

I believe that a respectful therapeutic relationship recognises that a client is the expert on their life and their needs, but at certain times, it is valuable and helpful to seek counselling to receive additional support to improve insight and gain a deeper understanding.

Before qualifying as a counsellor, I worked for the NHS as a Trauma and Orthopaedic Nurse. Prior to this, I worked in marketing for a major retailer. Both of these careers have given me a broad understanding of difficult, stressful and life changing events that people often experience.

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.

Wheelchair user access

My counselling room is on the 1st floor. I am happy to see a client in a ground floor room, however prior notice of 24 hours is required, to facilitate the change in location.
