About me

I work with adults, young people and organisations, on a face to face basis for short or long term therapy work. I can offer a Person Centred approach plus a CBT modality, where appropriate.

I work from a therapy centre based in the centre of Leigh and provide hour long sessions. I have worked in the charity sector, providing therapy to survivor's of Sexual Violence and have worked with issues such as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Abuse, Anxiety, Depression, Work related stress, anger, domestic violence, bereavement and fear.

I am passionate about the healing affects that  counselling can bring and understand that clients sometimes feel nervous about starting the process. So when you contact me, i will explain more about what Person centred counselling/CBT is to see if this fits with you.

In session one, we will complete a quick assessment questionnaire, which lasts around 15 minutes, this will help us to decide together what you want to work on. From there, you will receive hour long sessions to work therapeutically together. Many clients need around 6 sessions, but this is tailored to individual needs. Some clients need more, some need less. We will work together to decide what is best for you. For some people, starting the process is the most difficult part as fear and anxiety cn prevent people from making the first call, i understand this and you will receive a warm welcome when you contact me.
