I am an experienced Psychotherapist and Counsellor practising in Liverpool. I also hold a clinic in the midlands fortnightly.
I am passionate about helping people transform emotional distress of all sorts. You should expect to see a significant improvement in your mood within 6 sessions with me. My practice is based on Human Givens Psychotherapy & Counselling which is designed to be brief and solution focused and quickly helps you achieve lasting relief from a wide range of emotionally distressing symptoms and move on with life.
I am passionate about helping people transform emotional distress. I will quickly help you achieve lasting relief from anxiety, depression, addiction(s), anger management, post-traumatic stress disorder (ptsd), phobias, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD),smoking. I also offer support to transgender people suffering gender dysphoria.
I use methods that will quickly enable you to achieve a state of calm and work with you to identify goals that you feel will help you move forward. I will deal with issues that are troubling you from the past without having to dwell on them or endlessly talk about them. My focus is very much on the present and empowering you to learn how to manage your own mind and achieve your future goals. As an extension to my one to one therapy I also run workshops empowering people to overcome anxiety around money and live lives firmly based on solid principles of emotional health.
Human Givens psychotherapy is a powerful, common sense and scientific framework for understanding the way that your mind works that will help you achieve results very quickly. This framework encompasses the latest scientific understanding from neurobiology and psychology, as well as ancient wisdom and original new insights.
What you can expect from counselling sessions with me.
I offer a completely confidential and understanding approach to your issues. You can be completely comfortable talking about your problems whatever they are. I have wide experience in supporting people to work through their issues and achieve their goals. I work from a well-established therapy centre in Liverpool where I can offer you a comfortable space to explore and resolve your issues. Free parking is available for clients. Please let me know if you have mobility problems. I also work from Wolverhampton.
Each session usually lasts 1 hour and session plans are completely individual and planned around your needs. Session fees are £60 and can be paid in advance or at the time of the session. You can pay for each session one at a time. Please note, in order to help you assess whether you would like to work with me I offer a no obligation free 20-minute initial chat to help us assess whether I am the best person to help you. You can call me on 07970 304 678
I am a member of the Human Givens Institute. The Human Givens Institute is the governing body for Human Given’s therapists. They follow strict codes of practice in line with government national guidelines for psychotherapists. There are many hundreds of trained Human Given’s therapists in the UK. Their complaints procedure and ethical and professional conduct policy can be viewed on their national website here. www.hgi.org.uk.
A Human Givens accredited supervisor monitors my practice. Sessions with me may be discussed with my supervisor as part of the supervision process. All supervision discussions are anonymised. I have a current CRB check and also am insured as a professional therapist.
I hope this information is useful in helping you to decide if counselling with me is the right approach for you. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. If you feel you may wish to proceed, the next step is to make an appointment with me.
