As a professional counsellor I work with individuals to assist in facilitating change and improving relationships with self, and others, to help them in their personal and/or professional lives.
My primary approach to counselling is Person-Centred, meaning that I offer my clients a safe, confidential, contracted process in which to give them the time and space they need to explore their thoughts and feelings in an atmosphere of respect, safety and acceptance. This process allows clients to develop their own inner resources to live their lives in a more satisfying and meaningful way.
My counselling therapy can help with a number of issues including:
- Addiction (Gambling, Alcohol, Drugs, Sex Etc.)
- Loss (End of a relationship, Sporting Career, Self-Identity Etc.)
- Relationships (Breakdown, Separation, Divorce)
- Eating Disorders
- Bereavement and Grief
- Lack of Confidence
And many more issues which affect a person to fully reach their potential.
How to Get Started
Call or email me to set up your FREE initial session, an opportunity for you to meet with me, with no fixed ties or commitments from you to continue working with me, but as a chance for you to see if we can work together if you are happy to do so.
I would be more than happy to organise a convenient time for us to meet at either my Crewe or Nantwich practice's to suite you.

I have both the tools and experience to help and support an individual to reach a point where they feel they can manage their lives and feel both supported and able to access support in the future.
I am a great believer in general health and well being playing a vital part in the promotion of mental health and I try to live through these values through regular exercise and eating healthy foods. My caring, empathic and natural personality is evident in my work and I find it easy to relate to individuals from many backgrounds and all ages.
