About me

I am a qualified person-centred practitioner, supervisor and holistic therapist. As a person-centred practitioner I do not give advice or tell you what to do or what decisions to make. I will listen in a non-judgmental way, support you to come to your own conclusions and give you the space in which to talk about any problems or issues you may have, in a safe and confidential environment.
I also work as a person centred supervisor supporting your work as a counsellor or trainee in a professional and ethical manner. Working together to support your future working career and CPD.

I work from home where I have a lovely welcoming therapy room in which you can discuss any worries or problems you may have without the fear of anyone else listening.

If required I also incorporate my holistic experience into the therapy to aid relaxation and help release memories and thoughts that may have been suppressed for periods of time. For example the use of Reiki or Aromatherapy oils can help reduce anxiety and grief during the counselling process.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

I specialise in building a trusting relationship with you, which I feel will enable you to discuss any areas of concern arising in your life.

Further information


I can recommend Andrea as she is kind and caring which makes her good at what she does. I go for regular treatments and find it a wonderful experience, that treats the whole person. Margaret, Burnley

Andrea is friendly, conscientious, professional, well qualified and always willing to discuss the different treatments she offers and will give feedback when asked. She gives timely reminders for appointments, which I find helpful and more importantly the treatments are beneficial and always leave me feeling totally relaxed and de-stressed.
Judith, Burnley

Andrea is completely non-judgemental and trustworthy in her counselling approach. I feel I can talk about anything that is bothering me at the time. The environment is warm, relaxing, professional and friendly.
