About me

I offer counselling and psychotherapy to individuals (adults and young people aged 16 plus) I also work with couples providing relationship and sex therapy. I am accredited by both the BACP and UKCP and a member of the College for Relationship and Sex Therapy (COSRT).

I work from a Psychodynamic perspective and integrate other modalities dependent on the type of therapy required. For example, sex therapy is CBT orientated whereas my individual work would be more analytical in emphasis.

There are many different approaches to therapy which can at times seem overwhelming and confusing, so please feel free to contact me for an informal chat to discuss if what I offer might be suitable for you.

Further information

An exploratory initial session is offered to begin with as a way of assessing whether the type of service I offer is appropriate to your needs and an opportunity for you to determine if I would be the right person to work with you.

I firmly believe that a good outcome in therapy is achieved if you feel safe and comfortable with the person you will be working with. Endeavouring to develop a relationship in which you feel you can trust and be known is an essential part of the therapeutic journey.

I abide by the code of ethics of my professional bodies and have full insurance to practice.

Accessibility

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.
