About me

  My name is Denise, I am an experienced Counsellor and a registered member of the B.A.C.P., and work within their code of ethics. I have an extensive knowledge of helping people to deal with anxiety and depressive illness, including seasonal affective disorder(SAD) and post natal depression.  I have worked extensively in the mental health, substance misuse, and learning disability fields.

I have a particular interest in working with parents and carers of young adults within the autistic spectrum, especially those diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome.

I  have also worked with couples, experiencing difficulties within their relationship.

Most of us experience difficulties and emotional pain at certain times during our lives, there is no shame in this.

Talking about these difficult feelings can help us gain a greater clarity and direction. I offer the opportunity in a person centred way to explore and confront these difficult areas of your life. Together we can find a way forward which is right for you, our joint role being to enhance your sense of well being and to help you come to terms with lifes difficulties.

I work from my base in Longton near Preston in a totally relaxed and non-judgemental way allowing you time and space to explore your thoughts and feelings.

I offer a free half hour introductory session to see if you believe that I am the person who could help you look at, and address, your problems.

Sessions will be one hour long, the pace and number of sessions is decided by you, our sessions can be short term or ongoing.
