About me

Overwhelm can take many forms and affect us in various aspects of our lives at any given time. You might feel that you are doing well with parts of your life and struggling with others, or you might feel generally down or sad. When we are going through a difficult time, it can be hard to reach out to friends and family, so talking to a professional can help. I offer both face to face and online appointments, or even a mix of both as I appreciate the need for flexibility. 

Whether you are feeling sad, depressed, anxious, stressed, going through life transitions, difficulties in your relationships, experiencing issues in the present or struggling to deal with the effects of past trauma, I am here to help you. Sometimes, it can also be difficult for someone to pinpoint what the actual issue is and they just don’t feel right, with no insight into what would need to happen or change in order to feel better and that is absolutely fine as our work together will be based around growing your self-awareness, untangling your thoughts, feelings and emotions and exploring any underlying causes to see things more clearly and get a better understanding of what is happening for you. The insight gained from greater self-awareness can often alleviate emotional suffering, improve relationships, and lead to long-lasting, positive change.

The therapeutic model I practice is predominantly Person-Centred, although I also use CBT techniques as and when needed. I strongly value your individuality and I am here to provide you with the support to build on your strength and resilience at a pace that feels good for you.

I have experience working with young people, adults and seniors in settings such as Sixth Form colleges and wellbeing centres and welcome enquiries from people of any gender, ethnicity, or background.

I offer face to face sessions from The Hill Counselling Practice in Padiham, with free car parking available nearby. I also offer telephone and video counselling. Day time and evening sessions available.

  • Level 3 Diploma in Counselling Skills,  The Manchester College
  • Level 2 Diploma in Counselling Concepts, The Manchester College

I also regularly engage in Continued Personal Development (CPD) and specialist training, including but not limited to the following: past or present trauma, relationship issues, low self-esteem, inner child work, stress and burnout. 

Member organisations

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
