About me

We all need a little help sometimes. It maybe that you’re struggling with a specific problem, it could be a death, divorce, change of job or simply feeling stressed and anxious. Any change can cause stress and anxiety, even when the changes in our lives are clearly for the better.

Maybe you just feel down and don’t know why, perhaps leaving the house takes every bit of energy you possess and getting through each day leaves you exhausted.

Or perhaps you keep engaging in destructive behaviours – drinking, drugs, or gambling, no matter how hard you try and stop. Maybe you don’t want to stop but know that you should. Sometimes destructive behaviours are about poor choices, engaging in destructive relationships or not being able to maintain relationships at all.

Whatever you’re going through, I can help.

I’m a Psychotherapist incorporating integrative counselling and hypnotherapy which means I use a variety of different skills and theories to help you.  I often use counselling and hypnotherapy together in one session to get results.

I have lots of relevant experience – I worked for 6 months in a crisis centre in Liverpool, I’ve also worked for 12 months in a primary school on the Wirral with Place2Be.  I have a successful practice dealing with adults and young people of all ages with a variety of different issues.  I also work with Employment Assistance Programmes - RedArc , Psych Health and Workplace Options. 

The information contained here is just a snapshot of what I’m about, please take a look at my website for more information about me and what I do and you can also read testimonials from client’s that I have been able to help both on my website and via google review.  Interestingly the majority are provided by client's that I have worked with remotely providing counselling and hypnotherapy services. There really is a lot to be said for no travel hassles alongside the comfort of your own settee or bed to lay on,  together with a cup of tea/coffee in your favourite mug to aid relaxation and comfort.

I offer  online and telephone counselling sessions and am happy to do home visits at no extra cost.  Counselling and hypnotherapy is just as successful on line as it is face to face.

I do not offer face to face appointments.

I hold an enhanced DBS certificate and am fully insured.

Please do contact me and let’s talk.
