About me

I am a qualified experienced and an Accredited MBACP counsellor with a number of years experience working for the NHS in a GP surgery carrying out short and long term therapy with adults. I also work with children and young people in primary and secondary schools, using a variety of non-directive play and art therapy techniques. Counselling is a way of exploring issues, feelings, relationships and behaviours in order to improve your well being. I work in a non-judgemental and empathic way and my aim is to provide you with a safe and confidential space to enable you to work through and explore issues at your own pace.

Training, qualifications & experience

I qualified as an Integrative therapist from the University of Kent almost 10years ago.

I have worked since qualifying for the NHS in a doctors surgery as well as in private practice carrying out long and short term therapy with adults of all ages and presenting with numerous issues .

I also work with children , adolescents and young people who may be struggling with a number of issues including anxiety , stress, depression and bereavement .

I am accredited with the British Association for Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP) and an accredited member of the National Counselling Society (NCS) .

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.
