About me

Life is full of unexpected events and things beyond our control.  These events can leave us overwhelmed or struggling with feelings that are hard to put down. I am based not far from the centre of Crewe, I offer counselling in bereavement, anxiety, depression and living with chronic pain conditions 

Counselling allows a client space and time to work through their feelings with a professional who will not rush or judge you. I will work alongside you with the issues that have brought you to counselling and by working through them they will become clearer and a way through can be found.

Some benefits to counselling are learning to communicate how you feel, a counsellor will allow you space to work through your feelings you will not be hurried. A counsellor will work with you to build a safe space where you can explore the things that you have come to counselling to explore. Having counselling can help with reducing anxiety, helping to established boundaries, and building self-confidence.

As a counsellor I want to make sure this is the right counselling for you and I am the right counsellor I offer a free 30 min session so you can see if we are going to be a good fit.

I work from my home office, I live with my husband and our two cats. I hold a degree in Person Centred counselling from the University of Derby.  I also undertake training to continue my professional development.

Member organisations

BACP

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.

Further information

Covid information updated 

my counselling office is sprayed with disinfectant spray in-between clients, I leave a 30-minute space in between a client arriving and leaving, hand sanitizer is available and I take regular peak flow tests each week. 

I work form my home office based in Crewe; I offer a warm safe space to clients where they can talk openly. 

I live with my husband and our two cats, I will always ask about allergies and the cats will not be present in the counselling room if the client doesn’t wish them to be. A hot or cold drink will be offered upon arrival and there is a bathroom available if needed.

As a person centred counsellor I give clients are given space to talk and I help to process what they are dealing with. I may offer thoughts or give clarity so that the client can see a way through.
When you are stood on the edge I will stand beside you until you can take a step back.
