About me

I am a fully qualified and experienced integrative counsellor, CBT & EMDR Practitioner. As well as counselling for issues such as bereavement, depression, relationships, stress and abuse, I have special expertise in trauma/anxiety work with clients who have experienced recent or historical trauma. I also offer services to empoyers such as counselling for staff and critical incident debriefing either one to one or in groups. I work part-time as a counsellor for a charity.

I am an Accredited Member of the BACP and work to the BACP Professional Code of Ethics.  I am also a member of the BACP Register.  I work with my clients to find the best way for them to move forward from whatever bought them to me. 

I am also a member of the EMDR Association UK & Ireland. Eye Movement Desensitisation & Reprocessing  (EMDR) is a psychotherapy approach designed for working with distressing or traumatic memories.  The theory is to reprocess any blocked memories from past events.

If you feel unsure about engaging in counselling or EMDR I am happy to answer any questions you may have about the process.


I currently have appointments Friday daytime and Saturday mornings and am based in Astley, Tyldesley.

I offer face to face, online (via Skype) or telephone counselling

Training, qualifications & experience

I gained a Masters Degree in Counselling Studies from the University of Manchester in 2009 after completing the Post-graduate Diploma in Counselling at the same establishment in 2008. I have since completed a Certificate in CBT. I also hold a clinical supervision certificate. I also have completed part 1 of EDMR training.

I have worked within a number of charities as a counsellor as well as within the local NHS. I have been in my current role as counsellor at a Merseyside charity since 2010 part-time and work with survivors of sexual violence/abuse.

I am a self employed counsellor during the rest of the week. I engage in both short term and long term counselling in a comfortable and safe environment.
