About me

If you are reading this, then you are already on the road to bringing about change. Together we can explore your history and uncover patterns that might be holding you back. We can make positive changes, which will enhance your life and improve your wellbeing. Have a read of my profile and when you’re ready, contact me for a free 30-minute consultation, where we can get to know each other better and ensure I am the right fit for you. Face to Face or online sessions offered.

You can’t start the next chapter of your life if you keep re-reading the last one.

Talking to a trained therapist can offer you ways to manage and overcome mental and emotional difficulties that are stopping you from moving on with your life. I will listen and support you, with respect and empathy and without judgment. Talking to an impartial professional, within a confidential, open environment, will give you a clearer perspective on everything and allow you to discover and develop the tools you need to bring about positive changes.

Some examples, where I can provide help and support are:

  • After experiencing an upsetting event in your life, such as a bereavement, an abusive relationship or a relationship breakdown.
  • If you are struggling with a mental health condition, such as anxiety, depression or stress. Or how to manage a long-term illness, which has changed your life forever.
  • If you are dealing with difficult emotions, such as low self-esteem or anger.
  • If you're considering a career or life change or any work-related problems 
  • Any new parents who are adapting to the rollercoaster of parenthood

Whatever it is, we can work together to get you to a place where you feel happier, more confident and more in control of your life.

My Background

I started my own counselling journey after the breakdown of a long-term relationship, which damaged my self-belief and made me question everything. Seeing a counsellor helped me understand the rollercoaster of emotions I was going through and gave me the strength to let go of the things that were not helpful to my wellbeing. After this, I became so enthusiastic about counselling that I decided to embark on a four-year, part time, training course to become a counsellor myself. It was during this time that I met the man who was to become my husband, who is also a counsellor. We have a two-year-old son together and I am step-mum to a teenage daughter.

I have an extensive career working for large companies as a HR Manager, but I made the leap of faith to resign from that job and dedicate my time to being a counsellor as this is where my passion lies and it also gives me the flexibility to spend time with my family. 

The Benefits of Counselling

If you’re ready to do the work, you will be amazed at how capable you are to explore parts of yourself that you never knew existed. The process of therapy; having an outside perspective from an independent person, who will listen with empathy and without judgement, can allow you to grow more quickly than you ever have before and give you a clearer perspective on everything.

30-minute free consultation

I know taking this step can be overwhelming and scary, but I promise you won’t regret the decision to have counselling.

Everyone deserves to live a fulfilling life and to be excited for the future! If you are ready to explore and find a way forward, then contact me today to book in for your free 30-minute consultation. We can discuss the first steps and you can see if I fit with you, which is key to the development of a good working relationship. It will give you the opportunity to ask any questions you have.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a qualified Person-Centred Counsellor and a registered member of the BACP (governing body for counsellors). I have had a lengthy career, working as a HR Manager for a large company. This meant that whilst I was training to be a counsellor and after I had qualified, there was no shortage of employees, on short and long-term absence or struggling with work-related stress, who I could help using my counselling skills. I have also worked both privately and in the voluntary sector.

Being a Person-Centred Counsellor means your needs are at the heart of each session. I believe counselling changes lives and that everyone can benefit from counselling, no matter how big or small an issue it might appear to be.

For me, the most rewarding and enjoyable part of my work, is seeing the most important relationship of all improve, which is the relationship you have with yourself. I feel honoured to be part of that transformation and that clients let me into their lives and allow me to share their journey. So, if you are ready to explore and find a way forward, then contact me today to book your free 30-minute consultation.

Member organisations

BACP

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.

Accredited register membership

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Additional information

I offer face-to-face sessions at my home in South Liverpool or video counselling via Zoom. 

As I only work a limited number of hours during the week (no evening or weekends) I recommend you book your sessions in advance. It can take some time to build trust and establish a working relationship, so I do ask that clients commit to a minimum of 6 weekly sessions. This will also give you time to see some improvements. After this, you can decide if you want to continue, pause, or end the sessions. The sessions are £50 and last for one hour.
