About me

Are you looking for a way to move forward after a loss?

Is loss holding you back from a full and happy life - a bereavement, the end of a relationship, a change to your health, the end of your working life?

Are there times when that loss 'slaps you in the face' - when you go shopping and your late partner's favourite cheese is on special offer - when you turn the radio on and 'our song' comes on - when you go home after work and the house is empty - when you don't recognise yourself in the mirror?

At times like these I can help.

Talking to someone who never expects you to put on a happy face, or judges you for your emotions, can help to pull you out of a never-ending circle and start to feel like your old self again.

"It [counselling] has helped me cope with the saddest and most difficult time of my life. I feel stronger and able to live my life in joy."  T., Parbold

"Counselling helped me to acknowledge the loss of my parents and the gap that created in my life. It was life-changing, a really positive experience, and has helped me grow as an individual." P.D.

I run a private practice in a peaceful area of Skelmersdale, where you can be in a confidential, comfortable, and quiet space (see photo).


I am 5 minutes from the M58, and 10 minutes from the M6, with ample free parking and regular local buses 2 minutes walk.

"My experience of counselling was very good - better than expected! The most helpful aspect was speaking about myself; I'm not used to doing that and I've learned not to be so negative.  I feel happier, I'm more confident and have less arguments." A., Skelmersdale

To find out more how I can specifically help you, please come for a free pre-counselling meeting (20-30 minutes) so you can see if you feel comfortable with me, find out how I can help you, and ask any questions, with no obligation to book further sessions. Usually I will be able to see you within a few days; appointments are in the daytime, from Tuesdays - Saturdays, 10am - 4pm.

See more testimonials from some of my previous clients at the bottom of this page.

Testimonials from some previous clients:

"Your help assisted me through one of the most difficult periods of my life in a calm, friendly and relaxed manner. I have gone from being almost completely 'at the end of my tether' to a state where I feel much better able to cope with daily life. [I have] better insight into my behaviour and much better coping skills.  Your help was invaluable." K., Chester

"Counselling has helped me to turn my life around and it has changed immeasurably." J., Ormskirk

"If I did not go to counselling I would not be able to move forward in my life. My sleeping has improved a lot, I'm more confident and not worrying so much, and I'm seeing things much clearer." H.

"Counselling has helped me to acknowledge the loss of my parents and the gap that created in my life. I'm more robust and I find it easier to manage difficult situations at work - which is particularly useful in my role as a manager." P.D.


"I have gained an understanding of myself and my outlook on my life has changed. Before counselling, I compared my life to others and viewed my own as negative. I now feel reassured and positive."

" It [counselling] has helped me cope with the saddest and most difficult time of my life. I feel stronger and able to live my life in joy."  T., Parbold

"I have gained a a more positive outlook in life and am a more confident person. I can approach people with issues that I feel need resolving - disputes for example, and I am no longer scared to approach new challenges or try new things." C., Skelmersdale

"I am less reclusive than I was before counselling - I am much more outgoing and have discovered hobbies and activities that I am both good at and enjoy. I am not reliant on drinking to 'enjoy' myself; this was an issue that I was really able to address in counselling." W., Ormskirk

"Many thanks for all your support and help; I now feel able to express my feelings more and not bottle up my emotions." C., Ormskirk

"My experience of counselling was very good - better than expected! The most helpful aspect was speaking about myself; I'm not used to doing that and I've learned not to be so negative.  I feel happier, I'm more confident, and have less arguments." A., Skelmersdale

"I am a lot happier in myself since before counselling, and have got my confidence back. I've learned techniques of how to deal with difficult sitations and emotions. I enjoyed the process and the improvements made." P., Skelmersdale

I believe that the therapeutic relationship is key; I take pride in establishing a warm rapport and respect with supervises, and I aim to make supervision sessions rewarding and inspiring.
