About me

I offer short term and long term, face-to-face, telephone and online counselling.

I have experience in helping clients with anxiety, depression, generalised anxiety disorder, panic attacks, low self-esteem, family issues etc, or if you are feeling sad and need somebody to listen to your concerns.

I specialise in helping clients with addiction, sexuality and gender issues and will offer support to help you through the counselling process and to achieve your goals

I believe that each person has the ability to reach one's full potential and I will help you to achieve this. I recognise that each person is unique and provide a safe, non-judgemental space where you can feel confident that I will listen to your difficulties and help you to make sense of your past and present, whilst supporting you to make positive changes for the future.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

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.
