About me

I am a qualified counsellor based in Blackpool offering person-centred therapy. This is a non-judgemental form of counselling in a safe environment designed to work with you, the client, to explore and resolve whatever issues you wish to bring to the session.

If you feel this may be right for you, I invite you to contact me.

I am a member of the BACP (the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) ensuring that I adhere to their code of ethics, maintaining confidentiality, respect for the client and attend regular supervision.

I have experience of working with clients that require help with anxiety, depression, bereavement, PTSD, all forms of abuse, sexual and relationship difficulties.

Through both my care and counselling experience I have worked with clients who have long-term conditions, both physical, emotional and mental, including, though not limited to, fibromyalgia, arthritis, cerebral palsy, autism and downs syndrome.
