People with learning disabilities

I have been involved in the lives of people with disabilities for 25 years and offer an individual counselling service to people with learning disabilities.

My counselling practice is inclusive and reflects a considered balance between the psychological and social models of disability, particularly the ways in which our words and actions can support or hinder independence. I welcome the positive input of family carers and supporters of people with high support needs.

Independent Advocacy

I am an independent and experienced advocate and offer both a crisis and long-term advocacy service.
