About me

UKCP registered Hypno-Psychotherapist, EMDR Therapist, Counsellor and Supervisor dealing with a wide variety of issues.   Counselling, Psychotherapy, CBT and EMDR therapy takes place in quiet and comfortable location in Hutton, just 10 minutes drive from Preston town centre, easily accessible by bus and with free parking. Both daytime and evening appointments are available.

Identifying and working through the beliefs that you have about yourself, beliefs often established in early life and adolescence, can have a profound effect on how you feel about yourself, your life and your relationships today. If you have relationship issues; feel that you might benefit from couples counselling or have issues related to anger management, depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, stress or low self-confidence then you might be surprised at just how quickly it can be possible to make the changes that you are looking for. In addition to my work as a person-centred counsellor I also work as a coach, trainer and hypnotherapist and I integrate these approaches into my work with the explicit consent of clients and when it is appropriate to do so.

I work with both individuals and couples and I'm pragmatic in my approach to my work. When people come to see me they are usually feeling quite low. They have often tried unsuccessfully to deal with a particular issue through a variety of approaches and tend to be looking for the quickest and most effective way to change the way they feel or behave.
