About me and my therapy practice

I am a compassionate, qualified and experienced counsellor, able to work creatively and supportively with people in great distress to help them to move forward with their lives. I will respond to you with compassion, listen to you with empathy and value you exactly as you are.

I have been working as a person-centred and integrative counsellor since 2010, and offer general counselling for a wide range of issues. I have completed additional training in CBT and am currently training to offer counselling via Skype and by phone.

I also work specifically with those who are childless not by choice. I understand the unique needs of people who have not been able to have the children they longed for, whether through infertility, through not being able to or wanting to adopt or through other circumstances and can offer emotional and practical support from a place of deep understanding and compassion.

I am LGBTQI+ and neuro-diversity affirmative and value working with LGBTQI+ people and  with neurodiverse people (e.g. people on the autistic spectrum or with Aspergers, people with dyspraxia or dyslexia and people with neurological disorders) and with their friends and family members.

My main practice room is not wheelchair accessible, as there is flight of stairs to climb, but I do have access to an alternative wheelchair accessible venue.

I offer online counselling via webcam and telephone counselling.
