About me

I offer counselling, psychotherapy, supervision and coaching to help clients meet their full potential or deal with issues that are holding them back, such as anxiety, depression or relationship problems. This can be face to face or online.

I offer a calm and safe environment in which to explore the issues you face, and how you might resolve them.

I use techniques drawn from Transactional Analysis, Neuro Linguistic Programming and Performance Coaching.

I am based in Breaston, Derbyshire, close to Junction 25 on the M1.

If you would like to meet with me and discuss how we might be able to work together, please get in touch. This initial session costs just £20

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.
