About me

Are anxiety, depression or feelings of emotional distress making life and relationships miserable? Are you struggling to find a way forward and feel hopeful about life? If so, I can help.

I offer a caring, warm, fully confidential and professional therapeutic relationship to help you make sense of what's going on for you and create a more meaningful and happier future.

I am an experienced person-centred/integrative therapist who works for two leading local counselling organisations as well as in private practice. I have over 20 years experience of working with people in distress/challenging circumstances in health and social care settings and have managed, supervised and trained other practitioners in this work.

I draw on a range of therapeutic approaches (including relational, existential, solution focused and CBT techniques) to provide what works best for each individual person.

Please contact me to explore how I can help. Because I know that counselling can feel like a huge step, I offer an initial session at half my usual fee to explore how counselling might be helpful for you.

I am happy to consider reduced fees depending on circumstances.

I offer evening and daytime appointments and I work from comfortable, accessible and peaceful rooms in Longton and Sandbach.

In addition to counselling psychotherapy, I also offer solution-focused Life Coaching for clients seeking structured support to achieve their life/career goals.

I have over 20 years experience of working with people experiencing difficulties and challenges in their lives. Since 2001 I have also supervised and trained others in this work.
