About me

I’m a mature and experienced therapist and qualified counselling supervisor. I have knowledge and experience of various types of therapy and work in an integrative way, which enables me to tailor your therapy to suit you. At the heart of all my work is a person-centred ethos which means that my priority is to build a trusting, open and honest relationship which will enable you to feel truly heard and understood.

This in itself can bring enormous comfort and relief and help you develop a better understanding of yourself; find choices; build belief in yourself and ultimately to enrich your relationships and enhance your life.

Finding a therapist and starting therapy can be a daunting task. I can offer you a safe space and a nurturing, non-judgmental environment to help you unravel your problems.

I believe a big heart, a keen brain and a ready humour are the qualities which make a strong therapist and these are qualities I seek to offer to my clients and my supervisees.

I’ve had a rich and varied life which brings a unique diversity of experiences to my work as a therapist. I have first-hand knowledge of a high-pressure work environment, having been a director of a large company. I have since raised two children and experienced the challenges of maintaining a marriage and family and being a full-time carer at home.

My practice is in a beautiful, tranquil and private environment in the Cheshire countryside but only 5 minutes from Manchester Airport.

Making the right choice of therapist is crucial to the success of your therapy. I offer a full introductory session free of charge, in order for us to get to know one another and decide if and how the therapy will help you.
