About me - I became a counsellor because I had received counselling at a time when I felt unable to cope with life and felt suicidal. I found the counselling process hard work but it changed my life profoundly. I now use my training to help others find the self-empowerment I found within myself, to go out into the world with a new beginning, as I did.
How I will counsel you - My work is based in Person Centred counselling which is non-directive. This means I will not give you ‘homework’ or tell you what to do; this leaves time for you to take the lead in the session, all be it guided by me. I will work with you to understand your emotions and to control your moods, enabling you to work towards gaining more control over your thoughts and life.
Where you will see me - I have designed my therapy room to be calm and tranquil, to reflect the way I practice. It is both comfortable and professional. The location is quiet with private parking and is easily accessible by public transport. I am located in Wrexham, North Wales, not far from Chester. I also provide online counselling.
Training, qualifications & experience
My training - Counsellors traditionally qualify by graduating from a single course of study. I studied for 3 years prior to embarking upon my Diploma (qualification) course. Following qualification I have undertaken over 50 additional training courses so I can teach you skills to alleviate anxiety, panic, stress and depression and can help you with your relationship issues.
My experience - includes clinical psychotherapy, working with and supporting a diverse range of people from all backgrounds, on many mental health issues, with practical and emotional support. I am experienced in counselling transgender, queer, gender questioning, LGBT+ people and their families, which is my specialist interest area. (I am an ally.) I have received additional training for this.

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.
