About me

Counselling Therapist

The last couple years have had a huge affect on almost everyone - in particularly, their mental health. Too much time spent in lockdowns and isolation has lead to an increase in anxiety, social anxiety, depression, stress and low self esteem. People have had a lot of time to think over their past, bringing things buried deep right up to the surface, and what they want from their future. Purpose, quality of life and relationships have all been put under the spotlight and questioned

If any of this sounds familiar - you are not on your own...

I am an experienced counsellor based in Bolton & I have worked in private practice & the voluntary & community sector for 8 years. I have experience working with many issues such as anxiety, generalised anxiety disorder, social anxiety, low self esteem, depression, eating disorders,  relationship issues and bereavement. I am passionate about helping people work through their problems, discover new perspectives, strengths and overall, themselves. I work on a short-term or long-term basis depending on your personal needs and what suits you.

​I offer a safe, calming & comfortable space where you can be open & honest without judgement. This is time to focus on YOU. An opportunity to get everything that has been weighing you down off your chest. A chance to gain some peace & clarity without fear of judgement or repercussion 

Initial Consultations

It is so important that when choosing a therapist that it is someone that is a good fit for you. I offer a free, no obligation, 20 minute telephone consultation session. This gives us a chance to get to know each other & an opportunity for you to see if you would like to work with me

If you aren't sure if therapy is right for you I am happy to talk this through with you

I am currently only offering online or telephone therapy sessions

I am flexible with the frequency of client sessions. Some prefer to meet weekly, others every two weeks. I have some clients that now like to check in every month or so. Whatever suits your schedule and financial situation

I attend regular supervision and I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and work according to their code of ethics.

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.

I predominantly work in a person centered way - meaning we work together on the issues you want to bring each week, free of judgment. I try to come into your world and see it through your eyes and from your perspective. Much of the work is guided by you, there is no pressure to go anywhere you are not comfortable with

I also like to bring in other techniques such as CBT as and when it appropriate for the client and their needs
