Working from two private practices in Hale and Lymm, Cheshire, I offer a 30 minute consultation which enables you to see if I'm the right counsellor for you. I'm an experienced Psychotherapist qualified to Level 7 (Masters degree) and a BACP registered Couples Psychotherapist Counsellor. I have a Masters in counselling, relationship therapy. I work with a variety of problems such as Anger Management, Depression, Anxiety, Relationship Issues, Aspergers, Transgendered issues or Affairs and Couples Counselling.
I am ideally situated for Warrington, Altrincham, Hale, Bowden Lymm and Cheshire. I work as an integrative Counsellor/Psychotherapist and have worked therapeutically with individuals and couples for several years. I work in private practice and have also worked at Relate Manchester.
Qualified to Level 7 as a Psychotherapist, with a Masters Degree in Psychotherapy, Counselling & Relationship Therapy, my focus is understanding the key issues, getting results and working to find the best solution for my clients. Clients have previously said that they choose me because whilst I have a friendly and supportive nature I understood them and their needs straight away and worked with them to quickly resolve their issues for the better.
As a specialist expert in Anger Management I offer a specific and unique course of face to face or SKYPE sessions where we work together to fully understand your anger and how it manifests itself, I use a range of therapies to uncover the root of your anger and the impact it has upon your life, then we work to manage your anger in a more healthy way, learning new coping strategies that you can use on a daily basis. For pricing of the course please see below.
I also work with relationship issues such as communication problems, conflict, affairs, divorce and separation, post natal depression, loss of intimacy, trauma and I work with same sex relationships and transgender.
Furthermore I work with individuals who may be suffering with anxiety, stress, depression, trauma, post traumatic stress disorder, aspergers, LGBT issues, break up of a relationship, menopause difficulties, suicide and self harm.
My Cheshire private practice is based in the beautiful countryside of Lymm where
ample parking is available, the Hale practice is ideally situated for both Hale or Altrincham. All practices have light and peaceful rooms which enable you to feel relaxed and welcome. Offering a great place where you can think and explore your problems in a tranquil setting to gain clarity and insight.

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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Choosing a counsellor who is right for you can be quite confusing, especially at a time when you need to make the right decisions for you, a time when you may be feeling overwhelmed by having to even make decisions.
To help you choose a counsellor consider the points below:
1. Ensure the counsellor is qualified. This is very important as any one can set themselves up as a counsellor, the right qualifications sets the true counsellor and psychotherapists apart. Counsellors should at least be qualified to Diploma level as a minimum standard and do ensure that they are trained in the areas they say they are experienced in working with, for example if a Counsellor works with couples in therapy ensure they are qualified to do so as there is a different dynamic in the counselling when there is more than one person in the room.
2. Check the counsellor is part of a regulatory body. Most counsellors join a membership organisation where they work to their ethical standards. I'm a member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (MBACP).
3. Do they offer a free or discounted 20 minute session? Not all counsellors will do this and that is ok, however I feel that providing this service enables you to meet the counsellor to ensure you feel comfortable with sharing your thoughts, issues and fears with them. It also allows to check out their insurance details, certificates of qualifications they hold and that they have been CRB checked.
I hope my 3 tips help you in choosing the right counsellor and if you have any questions just give a call/email.
