About me

Having experienced therapy myself I am aware of the importance of having a therapist that can work alongside you to support you while you work towards your recovery in your journey of therapy. I provide a safe non judgemental, warm atmosphere to explore what maybe holding you back.  I have experience with working with the homeless, I have also worked with other counselling organisations and have worked with a variety of clients helping them live a more full-filling life. I understand that the prospect of looking deeper into ourselves can be daunting however with the right therapist it can be life changing. I have experienced this myself and have worked and witnessed this with an array of clients.

My role within the therapeutic relationship is to work alongside an individual to facilitate self-exploration. To aid deeper exploration I offer the use of clay, painting, and sand-tray. This can be helpful  to access parts of the psyche that talking doesn't always reach, and can be effective and enlightening for Adults and children.

I have spent many years of my career supporting some challenging individuals, who have found themselves dealing with addiction, self harm, relationship issues, and many other struggles as a result of a traumatic event. I want to offer clients a safe, respectful and sometimes challenging environment, to explore the issues that are important to you.

It's never to late to take the first step and focus on you.

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.

Wheelchair user access

I can offer wheelchair access upon request which would mean working from another venue.
