Services for Solicitors & GPs 

Solicitors and Family lawyers often refer clients who need support after a bereavement, relationship breakdown 

or following an accident. Family Solicitors can request Domestic Violence reports, Assessments and support for clients.  

I take referrals from GPs refer patients, particularly those who belong to Bupa, Cigma and other private health schemes who may be experiencing stress, anxiety or depression and require counselling. 

 

Most people refer themselves.

 

Affordable Fees:  I try to make work affordable. If you have financial problems I can sometimes offer reduced fees, particularly if you have young children. We can discuss this together.

Trainees: Please contact me by email.
