About me

I am an experienced Cognitive Behavioural Therapist and Registered Mental Health Nurse based in Blackpool. I work with adults and young people with a wide range of issues including Generalised Anxiety Disorder, Panic Disorder, Depression, Social Anxiety, self-esteem issues, self-harming, OCD, PTSD, Health Anxiety and Separation Anxiety.

I offer a confidential space and a warm, friendly, supportive environment where you feel comfortable enough to talk about the things that are worrying you. I have a flexible, non-judgmental approach and will tailor therapy to best suit your needs.  My aim is to support and encourage you to develop confidence in your own ability to help yourself.

I use CBT techniques to examine how thoughts affect the way we feel and behave. By becoming more aware of our thinking patterns, we can begin to recognise and replace unhelpful thoughts with healthier alternatives, moving towards a more positive, realistic way of thinking.

At the end of therapy you will leave with a toolbox of strategies that you can continue to use in order to manage your anxiety and depressive symptoms in the long term.

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.
