About me

We all face problems in life at times and there are occasions when some outside support can make all the difference.

By talking through problems with a trained professional, counselling gives you the time and space to consider how you want to make the positive changes that will allow you to live the happy and fulfilled life you deserve.

Do you sometimes wish that you were more confident, independent and had greater peace of mind?
By working together, therapeutically, in a non-judgemental way, you can lead the life you want and be the person you want to be.

Before I became a qualified counsellor I taught children and young people. I was always interested in the emotional well being of my pupils and was committed to developing them as individuals as well as learners. A teacher exchange to Canada, in a city centre school, developed my interest further and led me to retrain in the field of counselling and psychotherapy.

By understanding the emotional needs of children and valuing the importance of how childhood experiences can impact on our adult life I am able to truly emphasis and attune to the young people and adults I work with.

I have completed four years training in Transactional Analysis Counselling and Psychotherapy and am a member of BACP. I am currently working towards accreditation and registration as a psychotherapist.

I offer an initial 30 minute consultation, which is free. This provides you with the opportunity to ask questions and for us to decide if the therapy I offer is suitable to meet your needs. If we decide to work together we can arrange the next session. Following sessions are 60 minutes and are £35.

I do offer concessions for students and clients who decide to block book sessions.

Saturday morning sessions are also available.

All work undertaken is ethical, professional and confidential, adhering to the BACP code of Ethics and Requirements.

I attend supervision regularly, am fully insured and have an enhanced CRB certificate.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a private practice, from which you can explore your worries and concerns in a safe and secure setting.The therapy I offer is tailored to the needs and agenda of my clients.
Currently I work with children, young people and adults and couples.

Since 2005 I have been offering effective therapeutic support to children and young people in schools in South Cheshire and North Staffordshire.
