About me

I am a Clinical Psychologist working privately offering psychological therapy to individuals over the age of 16 in the Wakefield area, or nationally online. I work with most psychological difficulties such as anxiety and depression and have a special interest in trauma related difficulties. I draw on a wide range of therapy models to create an individualised therapy package for each client.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

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.
