About me

One to one and couples (relationship / marriage) counselling.

Are you struggling with something in your life? Do you need to talk to someone? I can help.

We all go through times in our lives where we need extra support. We can often feel isolated with our problems - feeling that nobody understands us, or that we should just get on with things - and that can make us feel even worse. Being human is tough at times and we all have our own pressures - such as stress at work, family life, relationships, money worries - and these can lead to you feeling that you are exhausted, run down, and that you just can’t cope with life.

Things can change. You don’t have to continue to struggle and you can feel better.

Counselling and psychotherapy helps thousands of people in the UK every year and is recognised by the NHS to effectively resolve a wide range of issues. It is also an effective way to work with couples, which we also offer.

I am professionally qualified and experienced practitioner, governed by the ethical standards and professional requirements of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I practice from offices in Uppermill, Saddleworth and offer home visits in the Greater Manchester / West Yorkshire region for clients unable to reach our office. I also offer support to clients throughout the UK by telephone and Skype video conferencing sessions.

I am are completely committed to supporting you with whatever you’re facing in a professional, confidential environment. I will work with you at your own pace and will treat everything you bring sensitively and with care. I appreciate it takes a lot of courage and trust to come and see us.

Please do call me to discuss how we can help you. There’s no obligation to arrange an appointment; our initial conversation will focus on what's going on for you right now, and how I can help you. My number is 0741 581 4882.
