About me

Having made the decision to look for a counsellor one of the hardest parts can be who to choose. Having someone who can offer you a calm and safe space to explore any emotional distress you may be feeling within a confidential, non-judgemental and empathic environment is central to a productive therapeutic relationship. This is what we will build together, at your pace.

Within my private practise, I work empathically, honestly and with no judgement with a wide range of emotional challenges that people face in life from welcoming counselling rooms in Lymm offering you a safe, comfortable and private environment.

On a voluntary basis, i work with Macmillan within the NHS specialising in bereavement, grief and living with life limiting illness.

- I have a detailed understanding and experience of the challenges people face with Autism - both with those on the spectrum and those who may be in a caring role and how Autism May impact on the wider family / friends.

- i have experience with working with people who are experiencing friendship / relationship issues / stress and anxiety / depression / autistic and neurotypical individuals who prefer a tailored communication approach / family issues / undergoing treatment for cancer / life after cancer treatment / bereavement / adjusting to life following a traumatic incident / student counsellors and those undergoing a life change. There is a more detailed list within my profile should you wish to take a look.

- Prior to my counselling career i worked within HR as a CIPD HR professional / Trainer.

I recognise that starting counselling may be a daunting prospect, so please do feel free to contact me in what ever way is comfortable for you should you like to know a little more about what to expect or to ask any questions about how counselling might help you.
