I trained in Brazil as a Clinical Psychologist (MSc), in London at Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust in Infant Mental Health (MA) and also in Child, Adolescent and Families Psychodynamic Psychotherapy (Doctorate Level).

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.
