About me

I am a clinical psychotherapist specialising in multiple approaches including trauma therapy. I am an accredited member of the NCPS register. I currently work internationally online operating from a range of modalities including CBT, REBT and CAT and hold a integrative approach. As a therapist I have clinical experience working with adults with a range of issues including Trauma, attachment injuries, anxiety, depression, eating disorders, gaming addictions, substance misuse, sexual abuse, domestic violence.
 
I believe everyone has the resources and ability to change, whether that means changing path’s, inspiring confidence or motivating happiness within. We all find ourselves travelling this journey we call life, sometimes our paths become unclear or we take a wrong turn but with a desire and commitment to change, any path can be altered or created.
Thanks for taking the time to look at my page. I hope the information I've provided here helps you with the sometimes difficult task of choosing a counsellor. I recognise this process can be challenging and confusing, so if you do have further questions feel free to get in touch via the contact details provided.

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.
