About me

If you are looking for help with issues that you feel stuck with, or if you are struggling to move on from events in your past, I provide professional counselling and psychotherapy that could be your answer.  As an experienced and accredited counsellor, I can help you to explore your feelings in a safe place and enable you to gain new insight, strength and direction for your life.

I offer a free 30 minute initial session for you to share your concerns and to explore if us working together is right for you.

One-to-one counselling (short term and long term) covering many areas and also couples counselling is available. I also offer counselling supervision.

My therapy practice is based two minutes away from Liverpool South Parkway station and is easily accessible by bus routes and by car, with ample free parking on the surrounding streets. Disabled facilities are available.

I also offer online appointments via Skype, Zoom and WhatsApp, and telephone appointments.

I am accredited with the BACP and have a wide range of counselling experience.  I have worked in a variety of settings, including managing a counselling agency and working as an independent practitioner for a number of years.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.


British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
