About me

Anxiety, Depression, Relationships.

  • Are you trying to make sense of life and all that it entails?
  • Have you had experiences that have left you feeling vulnerable?
  • Do you find that your emotions are all over the place or feel unsafe to express them?

Why - There are so many reasons why individuals seek counselling, depression, anxiety, abuse, low self-esteem, bereavement and loss, the list goes on. What ever you feel you would like to explore I offer a safe non judgmental place for you to do so.

How - I am integrative counsellor this means that I am able to use different theories and tools to assist you, this might be CBT where we look how your thinking influences your behaviour and find ways of changing what is unhelpful for you, or creative tools such art to help you express what is difficult to verbalise. There are other models and tools that we can use, when you come for counselling we will decide together which will be most helpful for you.

In addition to the above, having worked in the mental health services for a number of years, I also have particular experience in dealing with emotional, sexual, and physical abuse, and the resulting fluctuating emotions, and coping strategies such as self harm.

When - Please do get in touch for an initial conversation about how we could work together. I look forward to meeting you.

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.
