Counsellor, Psychotherapist & Registered Member MBACP (Accred)
Have you have been struggling to deal with difficult issues causing you worry and it feels like you need to explore a way forward, perhaps you need help in making sense of your thoughts and feelings? Counselling can help by offering a non-judgmental, confidential place for you.
Sometimes we just need a place without the pressure of responsibilities, a space to have for ourselves, away from the stresses of our usual routine and commitments. By talking things through together, counselling can often release the pressures and emotions you may be experiencing and can help you to identify what's behind your thoughts and feelings. This so often can create a sense of relief and clarity, which may pave the way for you to explore how changes and strategies can help you to cope and move forward.
I know it can be daunting to take the first step to ask for support, so I offer the option of a free 20 minute confidential telephone consultation before any session.
I am a registered and BACP accredited counsellor/psychotherapist, trained as an Integrative counsellor/psychotherapist. I utilise Person Centred, CBT and Psychodynamic therapies to help my clients gain insights, address problems and worries, with a non-judgmental, honest and sensitive approach.
We may also work creatively in a number of different ways, such as using art work, objects and journaling to assist you in exploring your feelings.
I have particular experience supporting clients with:
Anxiety, Bereavement, Depression, Loss, Personal Development, Relationship Issues, Self Esteem, Substance Dependency & Addiction(s), Stress, Trauma, Work & Exam Stress related issues and concerns Young Adults face.
I work from counselling room locations accessible from the Northwich, Stockton Health, Stretton & Knutsford areas:
