About me

Thank you for taking the time to look at my profile. I am a UK Council for Psychotherapy accredited Integrative Psychotherapeutic Counsellor with a wealth of experience working with people to develop their potential.

My practice is underlined by offering you empathy and understanding, my warmth and acceptance, and my own genuine personality within the UKCP professional boundaries and ethics. For me, one of the most important aspects of therapy is our working relationship and how that can be used to help you with your inner worlds and experiences in the world.

I will work alongside you to help you to work through your difficulties in the safe and trusting environment of our therapeutic relationship. We will look for patterns of behaviour which may have been developed in childhood or other past situations which were useful at the time but which are now causing challenges and blocks to living contentedly. We will look at your beliefs, feelings and actions and how they influence your experiences and relationships. Within the therapeutic work we can agree on your focus and aims to address what has brought you to counselling.

Accessibility

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.
