About me

I am an experienced and Accredited Psychotherapist, Counsellor and Supervisor, registered with BACP and ITAA, I am also Enhanced DBS checked.

Located both in Wilmslow and Alderley Edge,  my practice is accessible to clients from both the SK9 and WA16 areas, such as Knutsford, Mobberley, Great Warford, Chelford, Marthall, Macclesfield and Cheshire.

I have over 15 years experience working with, adults, couples, children and adolescents, parents and families, on a wide spectrum of issues, such as, relationships , anxiety, depression and stress,  feelings of sadness, post-natal depression, panic disorder, separation and divorce, affairs and betrayals, anger management and work related difficulties, exam stress, addictions, bereavement and loss, OCD, weight issues, low self-esteem and cancer diagnosis.

I also offer Couples Counselling. Having  worked with couples for over twelve years, I have significant experience and training in this area. I offer an approach that has successfully supported couples dealing with the impact of affairs and betrayals, and with couples who want to change areas in the relationship where conflict repeatedly occurs and where couples want to find more effective ways of communicating and relating. I also work with couples who have taken the decision to separate and are in the process of divorce. If you have any questions you would like to ask about couples counselling feel free to contact me.

I offer therapy to BACP trainees and those doing their Transactional Analysis training. I provide Supervision to both trainee and qualified Counsellors and TA trainees and enjoy supporting supervisees with their client work and professional development. I also offer Supervision, Coaching and Mentoring, to Professionals, who, either own their own business and want additional support and also individuals who work within organisations.

I provide sessions to adolescents and students going through exam stress, using a combination of Coaching, NLP and Counselling techniques, helping students and adolescents manage their anxiety successfully. I also work with parents and families who want support in developing their parenting skills and knowledge.

I run several support groups. A self development group for individuals who wish to work on self esteem, and feel that a small peer group environment would be of benefit to them. Support and motivation is provided through a combination of Coaching, NLP, and Therapy. I run a men only group and another for women, these groups meet once a fortnight.

My training is in Transactional Analysis, Psychotherapy, Counselling, CBT, Coaching and Hypnotherapy.

I am also a Life Coach and Hypnotherapist and can offer this to clients who wish to enhance their professional development or to incorporate this into their therapy.

I offer a warm, professional and respectful approach to the process of therapy and am passionate in my aim to provide a quality service to all clients. Working alongside, to support them in effectively resolving the issues they bring.

I run my own company, ImpactNorthWest, which provides training  services for Schools, Organisations and Businesses. I also work in schools, providing Counselling and Behavioural  support  for children and adolescents.

I can provide both long and short term therapy. I can also do therapy by phone for clients who live out of the area.
