I am a qualified counsellor specialising in the Person Centred approach and also hold a qualification in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT),
Dependent on the client's needs I can offer long or short term therapy, incorporating a combination of Person Centred and CBT techniques.
I provide a professional and confidential service.
Counselling is available to anyone who requires extra support because of any difficulties and traumas that they may be experiencing in their daily lives. The service is provided in a caring and sensitive manner, empowering the client to make changes for the better, leading them to a more fulfilling life.
Appointments can be made by the individual or through a referral through their doctor. I'm currently working from home having access to several private rooms throughout Flintshire, or I can arrange home visits through most of North Wales to Chester and Wirral.

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.

The first initial meeting is to assess the clients needs, to make sure counselling is for them also to make sure we can work together. There is no commitment to follow through to counselling at this stage.
Therapy on offer is either Person Centred Counselling or Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and after the initial assessment, my client and I agree which is the best way forward to help with their own personal needs.needs
