About me

I am a friendly, caring and passionate counsellor. I provide a safe, non-judgemental and confidential space where you can explore what has brought you to seek counselling and we can work through your problems together. Maybe you are not completely sure what is wrong? Working with me can help you discover what it is that is making you unhappy so you can get more satisfaction out of your life.

I am a fully qualified counsellor and a member of the BACP. I have experience working with men and women of all ages (from 16 to retirement) with a variety of presenting issues, giving me a broad spectrum of experience.

As well as my private work I also run the counselling service at a FE College, where I counsel both students and staff. I am the only qualified counsellor providing this service to the whole college. I have previously worked within NHS primary care dealing with referrals from GPs.

If you are unable to cope and feel that I could help you, please contact me for an initial FREE telephone consultation.


I offer affordable rates and I am based in Stockport. I am easy to access by public transport or by car and there is free car parking available on site.

Fees

My sessions last for 50 minutes. Initial telephone consultation (20 minutes) is FREE. I offer an open-ended service meaning that you are not time limited and you can choose when you want therapy to end. I prefer to book clients in at the same day and time each week so I can guarantee we always have room availability. I can offer daytime sessions on Mondays and Tuesdays, most daytime evenings and Saturdays.

Concessions available on request for students/low income earners/ benefits.

Rates:

Initial telephone consultation - FREE

one hour session - £35 - £45 depending on circumstances - concessions available for low income earners/unemployed/benefits/students/retired citizens.
