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 consultation. It is important that you find the right counsellor and in order to do this I recommend we meet in person. This session is free and will last around 30 minutes.

I offer affordable rates and I am based in Stockport. I am easy to access by public transport or by car and there are a variety of places to park nearby.

Previous client feedback:

"I wouldn't have envisaged being able to do half the things I have achieved without Genevieve's help".

"I can truly say I would not be alive today if it wasn't for Genevieve. She helped me move forward from a very difficult time in my life".

"I have benefitted greatly from my counselling session's with Genevieve. I'd recommend her to anyone who wants help through a difficult period in their life".

My sessions last for 50 minutes and are charged at £40 an hour. Initial consultation (30 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.

Bring £10 deposit to your first session and get £10 off your first paid session.
