About me

I am an Accredited Cognitive Behaviour Therapist who  also draws on other approaches to meet the needs of each unique individual that comes for therapy. I have 30 years experience of working with individuals experiencing emotional health issues such as anxiety,  PTSD, depression, trauma, and low self-esteem. Central to my work is to enable clients to be more self-compassionate and have the tools they need to live the lives they want.

I offer online or in-person, short-term or long-term therapy and have recently trained in Single Session Therapy.

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.
