About me

I am a Counselling Psychologist, registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC), who delivers an integrative approach to counselling and psychotherapy. I provide a safe, welcoming and professional space by which to enable exploration of difficulties and discovery of ways of coping.

A collaborative approach is central to the services I offer; working in partnership with you to determine goals and methods to address them. I utilise a number of therapeutic models to offer a direction that is right for you; including person-centred therapy, cognitive behavioural therapy, systemic therapy, schema therapy, and mindfulness based approaches.

My therapeutic practice includes a range of presenting issues and I am experienced in offering psychological counselling to individuals experiencing complex mental health issues. Additionally I hold a keen interest in working with individuals who have experienced trauma.

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.
