About me

I offer a person centred counselling service in the Merseyside area.  I can help you gain clarity and insight into how you think and feel and help you to understand, heal, grow and be kinder to yourself.  Let go of old habits, feel better and live life more fully.

I walk with you with warmth, care and at your pace.

Counselling provides a safe, impartial and confidential space in which to explore your feelings. Talking to a counsellor in a professional environment, safe in the knowledge that what you say will be listened to in a non-judgemental way. Counselling can help you to understand what is at the root of the concerns, and help you to work to resolve them.

All of us at some point in our lives will experience times when we feel that we are overwhelmed or cannot cope. These feelings often impact on other areas of our life leaving us feeling that we are unable to live life happily. This may be the time to seek out a counsellor.

Feelings such as anger, grief, anxiety and depression can be distressing and cause anguish especially if they have been with us for a long time. Counselling can help you to explore and reflect upon these feelings. It can help you to understand what is at the root of the concern, and can help you work to resolve the difficulties

What Conditions Can it Help?
Panic Attacks
Low self esteem

First session: Sessions last for 1hr minutes and take place in my counselling rooms  In the first session we will cover confidentiality, data protection, with a brief introduction to counselling.    By finding out more of what has brought you to counselling, we can explore those feelings and discuss the form your counselling may take.

Person Centred counselling relies on the building of a therapeutic relationship between client and counsellor where the client is offered empathy, congruence and UPR.

Member organisations


British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
