About me

I have been working in the area of psychotherapy, counselling and personal development for over twenty years. During that time I have worked with a wide range of issues and people from diverse backgrounds. I aim to provide a warm and non-judgemental space for you to explore the issues in your life. I have trained in many different therapeutic modalities and try to be flexible in my approach depending upon your needs.

When I work with clients, counselling may last from anywhere from a couple of months through to several years. I believe that everyone can benefit from counselling and psychotherapy and gaining a deeper understanding of yourself. As you explore the patterns in your behaviour you will gain awareness of where these patterns originated and as you develop this awareness discover the potential to change them if you want to.

Old behavioural and communication patterns developed in the past can interfere with our ability to develop good relationships in the present. As well as developing a deeper understanding of yourself, you may also find that your relationships with other people improve as you pursue counselling and psychotherapy.

I have been working as a therapist for over 20 years and also am a lecturer on a Masters university course in Counselling & Coaching.

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.
