Further information

I believe that you have the answers, you may just need some help finding them and bringing them to a level of awareness.  I will use challenge, reflection and stretch to help you identify them in a safe, manageable way.  I guarantee a collaborative working relationship.  You will not be on your own.

I have lived and worked in a multi-cultural environment all my life and aware that anyone can experience mental health struggles regardless of our backgrounds and upbringing.  Anyone of us can find ourselves needing help, and I want to help.

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.
