About me

Covid-19 update: Due to the need for physical distancing during this virus outbreak I have now moved my counselling service to online sessions only. This takes place via the secure Zoom Video conferencing platform. Evidence indicates that on-line sessions can be just as effective as face-to-face and perhaps even easier to attend. I want to support you as best I can, and my priority is your safety and welfare both physically and emotionally

I offer effective, fast and practical help for anyone suffering from anxiety or any other kind of emotional difficulty be it stress, anger, panic, phobia or low mood.

Whatever difficulty you may be experiencing at present my aim is to provide a safe, confidential space in which to chart a way forward and resolve inner conflicts quickly and efficiently so that you can soon feel better and start enjoying life again. My aim is to help you move on with your life as quickly as possible.

My approach is holistic and integrative.

Always I am guided by the particular needs and wishes of my clients.

Because every person is a unique individual I do not restrict myself to any single model of therapy. Rather I draw on a number of different types of effective therapy for which I have extensively trained.

I always record outcomes with every person who comes to see me so that the therapy is kept on track and progress maintained.

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.

In both of the therapy centres that I use, my dedicated counselling rooms are on a first or second floor accessible only by stairs. However phone or on-line counselling is available as an alternative.
