I offer individual and relationship counselling in a safe confidential space with an emphasis on trust. I use a mixture of approaches depending on what you want from therapy and how you express emotion. The therapeutic relationship is separate from other aspects of your life and a place we can explore your thoughts and emotions together.
I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I adhere to the BACP's code of conduct and ethics. I am a fully insured counsellor.
My therapy room is in a central Alsager location and has disabled access. I can offer day and evening appointments in the week, and morning appointments on a Saturday. Sessions begin with a free thirty minute consultation. The first full session will be an assessment.
To arrange an initial thirty mintue consultation, e-mail, text or call.

I am integrative therapist and use tools from various approaches within a humanistic framework including; existentialism, CBT, attachment theory, narrative therapy, gestalt, and other methodologies tailored to your process.
Therapy is not about diagnosing or labelling. Therapy is about what you want for your 'self'. It is very individual. It is hard work for you, my role is to be alongside you through that process. Because it is about you and your 'self' we move at your pace and in a way you feel comfortable with.
