About me

I am a qualified Emotional Therapeutic Counsellor in the Cheshire/Derbyshire and Greater Manchester areas.

Emotional Therapeutic Counselling is a form of counselling for those who are experiencing emotional turmoil in their lives whether brought about by a crisis, a long-term situation, persistent unhappiness, depression, apathy or difficulties in relating to others. A key aspect of Emotional Therapeutic Counselling is the range of techniques used by the Therapist to assist the client to both recognise and release painful feelings in an appropriate manner, by working with the emotions rather than the mind.

I offer a safe, non judgemental and confidential environment in which to explore your emotions, working at your own pace, and with warmth and compassion. I aim to help you come to a wholeness of mind body and spirit by supporting you through the process of change and personal growth. and help promote healing of the original emotional wounds.

I believe emotional wellbeing is the key to a balanced and fulfilling life.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
