About me

Are you looking for a warm, safe and discreet space to explore whatever is troubling you?

Counselling may seem scary but it is often easier to talk to a stranger than a friend or family.  I can offer a non-judgemental and supportive space in which you can talk freely and be heard and understood.  Working at your pace, I will support you as you find the right answers - which are waiting to be uncovered inside you.

My clients range from children and teenagers to adults; some find 2 or 3 sessions is enough while others appreciate the opportunity to more complex issues over a long period of time.

As well as being a qualified Personal Centred Counsellor with more than 700 hours of practice, I have a BSc in Psychology and many years' experience of working with charities.  I have also trained as a Counsellor of Children and Young People, and have a special interest in using play therapy with younger clients.

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.
