Consultations to support you, to reduce anxiety for all.
From my base here in Cornwall, I'm able to reach any family or individual across the globe. Via any format you choose, (Zoom, Teams, Skype, Facebook etc), and upon any device (Telephone, mobile, tablet, computer and more). Feel free to get in touch. You can contact me on any format you feel most comfortable with.
I am not a professional therapist or counsellor. I use my professional experience and personal insight when consulting with individuals or families. All of our Consults are confidential and security protected. Please see my policies below for more information.
Let me know of preferred communication methods, how to address you and any sensory or trigger issues you may have. If possible please ensure you are well lit, and that background noise is kept to a minimum.
I will do my best to use any preferred communication method you prefer. I have experience of several different Alternative and Augmentative Communication methods.
I need to know your time zone, in relation to GMT/BST, and when you're free and we can book our meeting.
We will arrange an initial discussion, so I can listen to you, discuss your thoughts, needs and decide upon how we progress.
A plan of action/timetable will be agreed, costs discussed, (I normally invoice after each session), and we will begin.
I'm hold a full DBS Certificate. (Disclosure and Barring Service Certificate UK).
Any consultation work to be engaged with individuals under 18 years old will be fully discussed with parents/guardians in the first instance.
I am happy to work (and often do), alongside other involved professionals and individuals.
At each point of our contact, you can get in touch at anytime and I'll respond as soon as I'm able. We will continually review progress, and can meet regularly.
