About me

I tailor my theoretical approach to your individual needs with a focus on establishing rapport and building a trusting relationship.

Faith is integral to a non-judgmental, caring, genuine stance. I am approachable and transparent in the way I work, we can work short-term on a specific issue or long-term, depending on what is appropriate. At any point in time, you can be sure that I am committed to helping you.

'My passion is to help you process/renew and discover a new way to live your life with a fresh sense of hope and purpose for the future'.

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.
