About me

Hi, my name is Avril, I am a fully qualified BACP registered counsellor. I offer person-centred counselling from a quiet, safe location on Rodney Street (Liverpool City Centre).

I work in a humanistic way, accepting you as you are. Together we will work through what you choose to bring to the sessions, safe in the knowledge that what we discuss is confidential with no judgement. The focus will always be on you and your wants and needs.

What to expect:

I understand that the decision to begin counselling can evoke anxious feelings. This is natural and I will provide you with the space, time and support that you need to explore your story at a pace that suits you.

Should you be interested to find out more you can call or email to set up an initial session; We'll talk about what you want to get out of counselling. This will be for 30 minutes and free of charge. Following this initial session there is no obligation to continue, that decision is solely yours to make.

If you decide to proceed we will begin to meet weekly/fortnightly for 60 minute sessions.

Thank you for taking the time to find out more about how we may work together.

I look forward to meeting you.

  • Depression

  • Loss and bereavement
  • Relationship issues
  • Family Issues
  • Self-image

Member organisations


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.
