Due to covid19. I am offering online session via skype,Zoom and Microsoft Teams. I am unable to offer face to face at the moment.
A bit about me.
As a private, person centred counsellor with extensive experience in many subject matters including Anxiety, Depression, Trauma, Bereavement,(Complex, unrecognised) Abuse (sexual, physical, emotional), Relationships issues,(Couple and family) , Self harm, Eating disorders, Addiction, Suicidal ideation, Career stress and life changing adjustments, to name but a few, I can use my integrative skills to facilitate positive change.
I work from private and comfortable rooms in Birchwood Warrington and St Helens Town Centre. Both of these areas offer easy accessible and tranquil rooms. Both have nearby parking and bus routes from the surrounding areas. I will also consider home visits. I have substantial experience with adults, couples, adolescents and children aged thirteen years and upwards
I am passionate about providing high-quality service in a safe, private and non judgmental environment, where you will have time to explore and make sense of your feelings. I understand that seeking and finding the right counsellor can be daunting and this is why I offer a no obligation, first reduced rate appointment. You maybe unsure of what is troubling you and you might feel stuck and unable to voice your feelings. This first meeting is to give you the opportunity to meet me and to give you the space and time to air your concerns and for me to answer any questions you may have and hopefully ease any anxiety you may have. Your confidentiality and my discretion is assured.
You can contact me by email or phone on the number on this page and if you do get my voice mail, please leave me your name and number, and I will endeavour to contact you within 24 hours.

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.
