About me

I am based in Heysham where I offer counselling to people willing to travel from any of the surrounding areas. I will speak to you to arrange home visits if you are unable to travel.

Sessions are usually for one hour weekly, but this is flexible to meet your needs.

Please contact me and If you leave a message I will get back to you to arrange an initial meeting.

I offer a caring, non-judgemental and safe relationship where you can explore your feelings. Once you are able to voice your inner troubles, you can begin to find clarity, peace and the ability to move forward in a positive direction.

There are many reasons people give for coming to counselling such as depression, anxiety, addiction, relationship struggles, bereavement, need for support with life’s challenges, unwanted overwhelming feelings,  loneliness, help with accepting a major life change.

When two individuals make contact for the purpose of counselling, this is the place when change occurs. Insight and contentment can begin to take shape for you. I can provide a counselling relationship which will allow you to feel safe enough to explore your challenges and problems.

I have worked with individuals who have asked for help with addiction, depression, anxiety, eating disorders, bereavement, relationship problems; as well as those who feel there is a lack or void in their everyday life which they wish to understand and fill.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a Postgraduate Diploma in Person Centred Counselling and Psychotherapy and an MA in Counselling and Psychotherapy.

I have a Certificate in Supervision.

I am a registered Accredited member of BACP.

In addition to my private practice I work for a charity on a voluntary basis. I have particular experience in working with individuals with addictions.

I also have previous extensive qualifications and experience working with individuals in education, advice, management and support services.

My work is guided by the BACP code of ethics.

Further information

I believe that it is the therapeutic relationship itself which will bring about change.  This change appears to be deep and lasting as opposed to surface change.

My strongest belief is of the person as a motivated, creative and constructive being who will find a way to develop and be fulfilled.   When I look at this statement I can see it looks overly optimistic and naive but I arrive at it over a long period of time, through my observation of others as well as my own personal experience.
