About me

I am a Burnley based Counsellor and Holistic Therapist covering East Lancashire and West Yorkshire.

I am a member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy and work within code of practice. 

I have additional qualifications in meditation and relaxation as well as training in self harm, therapeutic work with children, domestic violence and mental health. I have gained experience through counselling in Sure-Start, Brook and Place2be.

I am an Anxiety UK approved counsellor and work with clients who experience high levels of anxiety and panic.www.anxietyuk.org.uk 

My main area of interest is Autistic Spectrum Conditions including Asperger Syndrome. I have over 10 years experience of working with children and adults who have been diagnosed with an Autism Spectrum Condition including Asperger Syndrome and High Functioning Autism.

I am also a member of the British Psychological Society (BPS).


Children and Families

Children also at times difficulties which can benefit from counselling, although it is important to reach the child from a perspective they can understand, often through 'play'.
I offer children a variety of ways of working which can allow the child to explore emotions, problems and experiences.

I am a therapeutic play practitioner and I have worked with children and families for many years. I have a special interest in Autism Spectrum Conditions, Neurological conditions, Selective Mutism and Social Anxiety.


I offer children a way of communicating through Therapeutic Play, Creative Therapy, Relaxation, Sand tray, Drawing and Talking, Role Play, Painting and Drawing, Puppets, Movement,  Creative Visualisation, Therapeutic stories and Sound.

I work with parents, grandparents and siblings as working together as a family can allow individuals to gain the view of others and an understand the child's process.
