About me

Hello,

If you are reading this then you might be feeling anxious, stressed or depressed. We all go through challenging times in our lives when things can seem very difficult. I offer a safe, supportive and honest space where we can explore your individual challenges. My aim is to help you not only resolve conflicts and issues but to also be able to express your unique individuality and potential.

"Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes."     CG Jung

The therapeutic process is a journey not just of overcoming current issues but of learning to live a more fulfilling life. As well as understanding past traumas and present difficulties, we will also work together to discover what adds purpose and meaning to your life.

I am a qualified psychotherapeutic counsellor with over a decade of experience, working with a wide range issues from depression, anger management and addiction to relationship issues and abuse. I am also a Supervision in training offering supervision to other therapists.

I offer weekly sessions on either short term or open ended basis.

I am an Individual member of the UKCP and abide by its code of ethics.

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.
