About me

I am an integrative practitioner with over 25 years experience as a counsellor and counselling trainer. I am also a casework supervisor. I have a particular expertise in working with those who may be experiencing work related stress, personal and relationship problems, and suffering the effects of bereavement and loss.

I have a simple approach to my therapeutic work. I believe that when we are feeling isolated, hopeless, angry, guilty or just lost we become disconnected from both ourselves and those close to us. I consider my role is to explore why this has happened and help you gain an understanding of how you can use this self-knowledge to move forwards to a future were you have greater insight and a sense of belonging.

I work from a comfortable, safe and warm historic Georgian house in the centre of Bolton, with free gated parking for evening appointments.
