About me

I'm a warm, empathetic Person-Centred therapist. I have a private therapy room at my home in Rainow, Macclesfield where I offer a safe and non-judgemental environment.

I have a genuine interest and care for those who want to share and explore their personal experiences with me, and I maintain the trust and well-being of the client while supporting them through whatever they want to bring to the sessions.

I believe a lot of good can come from being able to be completely and honestly ourselves with another person. To be accepted and cared for while sharing sometimes difficult or unpleasant experiences can help to heal past traumas, or cope with current struggles. I try to understand your world as you see it and help you to find the solutions or resolutions you’re looking for without labelling or pushing you in a particular direction.

In Person-Centred counselling the individual is at the centre of the decisions which impact their lives. People come to therapy for many different reasons but often they are dissatisfied, uncomfortable or distressed by aspects of their life and are seeking some kind of change. I believe therapy can help to increase self- awareness and self-acceptance in order to feel more in control, and live in a more fulfilling way.

For me, therapy is collaborative and my aim is to facilitate an open and honest relationship with all of my clients. In order to establish if we would potentially work well together, I offer a free, 30 minute initial meeting.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a BA (Hons) in Person-Centred counselling from Middlesex University and a diploma in Person-Centred counselling from the Metanoia Institute.

I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and work in accordance with their ethical framework.

Before setting up private practice I previously worked with charities and independent counselling services. I have helped clients to have more autonomy in their lives while overcoming issues such as, but not limited to, childhood trauma, domestic violence, sexual violence, anxiety, depression, anger management, self-harm, eating disorders and family & relationship difficulties.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Accessibility

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.
