About me

Whatever brought you here today, I am 100% committed to offering you counselling, tailored to your specific needs and am passionate about the changes that therapy can bring. Times when we are feeling particularly stuck or overwhelmed can leave us feeling distracted, disconnected and less capable, less creative and less present. There is no one-size-fits-all approach to counselling so whether your goal is to achieve greater self awareness, build stronger personal relationships, heal past wounds or feel better about yourself, talking it through in a safe, therapeutic place can help.

Counselling can change lives. The counselling relationship offers a unique form of listening and support that friends and family can sometimes find difficult to give. It can help you find a more fulfilling, satisfying way to live, to improve your existing relationships and help you cultivate new, rewarding ones.

I work with individuals and couples struggling with relationship issues, anxiety, trauma, self-doubt, major life changes or low self belief.

So whatever your current or past difficulty; anxiety, relationships, depression, trauma, loss, bereavement or self esteem, now may be the right time to make changes. I work with individuals or couples for short or long term counselling. There are no strings attached to the number of sessions, therapy is always at your pace and for as long as you feel it is helping. The best way to determine if we will work well together, is to meet in person and I invite you to contact me to set up a free 30 minute consultation.

I have had many years experience working with Counselling charities in the North West as well as running a private practice where I offer both individual and couples counselling, for which I have had specialist EFT training (Emotionally Focussed Therapy) that has been proven over many years to be highly effective.

As a lifelong learner, I continue to pursue training opportunities to increase my understanding of how we all 'tick' and to keep up to date with new findings. If you have questions or are ready to set up an appointment, please feel free to call or email me and I'll be happy to speak with you.
