About me

Counselling and psychotherapy services to young people, adults, couples and families in a safe and confidential environment in the heart of Rutland.

Working to help people improve the quality of the life they lead by helping them to understand what has made them who they are today and how to recognise and break damaging repeating patterns of behaviour in relationships. Working with attachment issues and developmental issues from childhood that present in certain ways in adult relationships.

Experienced in working with mental health issues such as depression, bi-polar, anxiety, panic attacks, social phobia, low self esteem. Also chronic health conditions such as diabetes. Terminal illness from diagnosis to end of life work and cancer survivorship.

I am trained as an Emotionally Focused Couples Therapist and work extensively with couples to help them understand the difficulties in their relationship's, where they may come from and how to overcome them to achieve a more fulfilling life together. Sometimes couples work can be finding a way to separate amicably and maintain a good enough relationship to manage children when living apart.

I am also a bank psychotherapist on the government Practitioner Health Programme (PHP) for GP's in the area and a member of The Association of Family Therapists.

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.
