About me

Life can seem difficult or even overwhelming at times. When we feel this way counselling can provide the space for you to share the difficulties you're experiencing. And by understanding these problems more clearly, you can start to make changes to your way of life and start to live more fully. As we explore your worries and the underlying issues, you will gain insight into your emotional reactions and behavioural patterns and begin to build a new self-awareness.

I am an experienced BACP registered counsellor who offers an empathic, non-judgemental space where you can talk freely and confidentially enabled us to work together and explore and work through what is happening for you.

It is my aim that you feel supported, listened to and understood and to feel comfortable to explore what is happening for you. If you are thinking about counselling, and wondering whether counselling can help I am more than happy to answer any questions you have and provide any information you need.

Key details

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.
