About me

I am an integrative counsellor with a strong person centred base. I work with individuals on a variety of issues such as depression, anxiety, stress, eating difficulties, relationship issues and personal issues such as self-esteem and self-confidence. I have a lot of experience of working with adult survivors of sexual violence and historic childhood sexual abuse. I don't currently work with people under the age of 18.

On a personal note, I am a calm, kind and caring person. Prior to counselling, I had a rich and varied career history which included working in a Zoo, with a luxury travel company, a team of psychologists and a solicitor.

I am able to see clients in Ellesmere Port, Upton by Chester and Saltney.

Training, qualifications & experience

From June 2016 to present I have been counselling with two services offering support to survivors of sexual violence and childhood sexual abuse: RASA Merseyside and Chester Sexual Abuse Support Service.

Previous counselling roles have included working with college students and people with physical and cognitive disabilities.

I qualified as a counsellor in 2008 and since then have attended many training courses, the most recent being:

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Level 3

Award in Sexual Violence - which has included topics such as: Safeguarding Vulnerable Adults and Young People; Supporting Survivors with Suicidal Thoughts; Objectification of Women; Supporting Male Survivors of Sexual Violence; Supporting Lesbian, Gay and Bisexual Female Survivors of Sexual Violence; Impact of Childhood Sexual Violence and Child Sexual Exploitation.
