About me

Taking the first step to find a counsellor can be a daunting experience and as such   I am happy to have an initial 20 minute telephone session, free of charge.

Whatever your counselling needs, I provide my clients with a safe space where you can be yourself and that allows us the time to work through together whatever you are dealing with.

I strongly believe in the relationship between client and counsellor and that every individual has the right to be given that time to be heard, allowing for personal growth, walking side by side with my client supporting them on their counselling journey.

I use an integrative approach to counselling, which means that I use different counselling skills to suit that individual person - including Person Centred, Gestalt, psychosynthesis, CBT and Psychodynamic Counselling.

I can work creatively with all, including the use of visualisation.

Key details

DBS check

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.

I can provide a ramp for wheelchair access.
