About me

Welcome. How can I help? I imagine you might be struggling with anxiety or low mood and experiencing changes in your life that you might be looking for some help with. I am qualified and experienced in dealing with the problems you may be facing from mild to severe. I have been working as a psychotherapist for over 12 years with a wide range of difficulties, my area of particular expertise being trauma. Let me help you.

I will work with you to achieve your goals and start your life moving on again. I work within a Cognitive Behavioural approach (CBT) and this way of working can help you to learn strategies and skills to resolve your problems now and manage any future bumps in the road.

I offer a kind, honest and warm way of being that can allow you to feel comfortable working with your difficulties. If this sounds like the approach you are looking for, please contact me for an initial chat. Thank 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.
