About me

Hello, welcome and thank you for taking the time to read my profile. Being a person-centred counsellor, I work in an empathetic manner with clients, seeing my clients as the expert about themselves. I endeavour to provide you with the space to work on your own agenda and at your own pace, as we explore the issues you wish to bring to counselling secure in the knowledge that our sessions are confidential and free from judgement. I aim to work alongside you in such a way that you can develop the solutions, or find the answers, which you feel are appropriate for you.

There is a broad spectrum of reasons why people seek and can benefit from counselling. The reasons may seem clear, or you may feel somewhat out of reach, yet there is a sense that talking to someone may help you. I appreciate that it is important that you find the right person to talk to; therefore, I offer a free of charge initial telephone consultation, so that we can discuss your concerns and how I may be able help you.

I work from Lynwood House Therapy Centre, which is located in Culcheth, Warrington. I conduct my practice Sunday–Thursday, offering both daytime and evening appointments. I am happy to arrange appointments by email or telephone.
