The Osteopathic House
38 Church Street
Birkdale Neuro Rehabilitation Centre
I am a fully qualified, friendly, gentle and experienced person-centred counsellor dealing with anxiety, depression and relationship difficulties. I had a stroke in 2012 which has led me to having a particular interest in counselling people, or carers of people, with neurological disorders. I also specialise in counselling carers of those with Dementia.
Sometimes we don't know why we feel the way we do and talking to a counsellor can help you to explore these feelings and work out a way through even when things may appear hopeless.
I offer a supportive, non-judgmental and friendly face to face environment using a variety of therapies including person centred, CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy) and sandtrays.
In addition if your condition prevents you from travelling I offer home visits.
