About me

I am an accredited, registered member of the BACP, and have been in the counselling sector for a number of years working in and around the North West. During my time I have experienced a vast range of clients. As well as becoming the founder of Seasons Counselling & Psychological Therapies, I have worked for a few counselling agencies over the years, along with working in the NHS (IAPT) team. There is no limit to what type of issue i can work with, as i am trained in a person centred way, which allows me to work with the client from their frame of reference while also having the skills to integrate techniques and pycho-education when useful for my client.

Other therapeutic models which I integrate into my Person Centred Counselling when needed are CBT, life coaching and NLP.

What is Counselling?
Counselling i
s a form of talk therapy, usually held in a 1-2-1 setting. A place where you can share and explore your thoughts, feelings and behaviours at ease and confidentially. A therapist can help you to see things that you may not have previously been aware of, while also helping you to see things from a different perspective. They can help you to work on making changes or accepting something that you may not be able or ready to change.  You may explore ways of coping and managing situations or difficulties. Going for counselling can seem like a terrifying experience if you have never been before. A therapist should offer you qualities such as, having a non judgemental approach, so you can feel at ease and share any concerns or difficulties that you may be experiencing in confidence, without fear of being judged . Along with these qualities, good use of listening and reflective skills are used to help you gain the most out of your experience, along with other counselling skills which are used, depending on your reasons for counselling, which are tailored to meet your needs.

Counselling helps you to feel settled, promotes self awareness and increases confidence.

Stress:

Stress is a Physical, Mental, or Emotional Strain or Tension:

  • Stress affects us all at some point in our lives
