About me

I am a fully qualified Counsellor in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy providing a safe, non-judgemental and confidential environment for you to talk through your problems. I am here to support you as we explore together ways to make your life more balanced and fulfilling.

Much of my experience has been with people dealing with grief and bereavement. Loss can take many forms, whether it be following a death, or coming to terms with changes in circumstances which cause confusion and emotional pain, therapy can help the healing process.

Whether you know why you’re feeling the way you do, or you want to find out why you feel the way you do, I want to help.

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.
