About me

I am dedicated to supporting my clients and giving you the tools you need in life. I work with the whole person, our minds are just as important as our bodies and we need to work on emotional and mental resilience to allow us to bounce back when life happens. Now you are ready to make changes, I am here to support you along that journey, giving you a toolkit that you will be able to use throughout life. I work in an empathic and sensitive manner, helping to support with problems that you may never have felt able to talk out loud about before.

I am a qualified, accredited Cognitive Behavioural Therapist (CBT). I am also a qualified counsellor and provide Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy. I am experienced in working with a wide range of problems from mild to severe and enduring mental health difficulties.

I believe that the most important thing we can do is to understand ourselves, how we feel and act. Together we can change patterns of behaviour that you may have been trapped in for a long time.

Reach out to discuss how we can achieve your goals, one step at a time. Leave a message and I will call as soon as I am out of session.

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.
