About me

No matter what you are going through, no difficulty is too small or too big to bring to counselling sessions with me. I am here to listen to you, to accept you, to help you see more clearly and to help you move forward.

Sometimes everyone needs some support and maybe you would like help dealing with a significant life event. Perhaps you are suffering with depression and are finding things too hard to face. Possibly the stress and anxiety that you are experiencing are impacting on all areas of your life. Maybe you are struggling to come to terms with accepting yourself. Perhaps a past event has left a wound that just isn't healing. Whatever it is that you would like help with, I will never tell you what to do, nor will I advise you, but I will help you to make changes in your life and help you to feel more in control.

I recognise that it can be hard choosing the right counsellor but I hope it helps to know that as an accredited member of the National Counselling Society (in turn accredited by the Professional Standards Authority), I follow a strict code of ethics and follow stringent professional standards, ensuring that I offer you the best service that I can.

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.
