About me

I am a UKCP registered Psychotherapist with a broad range of experience in the NHS, in private practice and in the voluntary sector. I'm currently working in the NHS and Private practice. I have a Doctorate in Psychotherapy.

As an Integrative therapist I believe different counselling and psychotherapy approaches all have something unique and valuable to offer, so I draw on various theoretical ideas. This means the therapy varies depending on the particular needs of each person.

I take a inclusive, non-pathologising view of gender and sexuality.

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.
