About me

I am a qualified experienced Counsellor and Stress Management Consultant, based in St Helens, Merseyside. I understand how difficult it can be to discuss personal problems, whether they be relationship issues, anxiety, depression, or any other matter which is causing distress.

I offer a safe, confidential and non judgemental environment to enable you to explore your current issues. My aim is to establish a relationship of trust and respect. This will allow you to feel comfortable talking about issues you cannot share with others. The purpose is to help you gain a deeper understanding of your concerns and help you to make decisions and choices to enable you to move forward.
I can provide home visits by arrangement.

I work within the NHS providing Stress Management sessions to patients, and provide private stress management therapy to business professionals.

I provide a Counselling service to clients of a national insurance company via a national law firm.

Please ring for a mutually convenient appointment.

I am fully insured and undergo regular supervision in line with BACP requirements.

Further information

I feel that counselling can allow us to explore some of the issues that can be holding us back from leading a full and rewarding life. By looking at the things that trouble us in a safe and confidential setting, we may be
able to resolve long standing issues that have clouded our life for many years, as well as dealing with
current problems.

I have worked within the NHS for over 10 years, helping people with health issues to move forward and improve their quality of life.

I also teach Tai Chi, privately, for the NHS, and for Age Uk.
