About me

I provide a friendly and warm personal, professional counselling service in a confidential setting. My services are offered to adults, children and corporate organisations on a individual basis.  However any children attending counselling must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

I work from an integrative approach which includes Person Centred, Psychodynamic and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. I understand that each person has different issues so the counselling process will be tailored towards each individual's needs. Strategies and goals will also be explored helping clients to successfully reflect and change their lives.

Besides my private work I run a charitable organisation which offers an onsite counselling service to children within schools in the Northwest. Children can find direct eye contact to be intrusive so additional activities are used to convey their thoughts and feelings through the use of creative interventions.

Training, qualifications & experience

I qualified as a counsellor in 2008 and hold a Advanced Diploma in Counselling Skills and Theory. Since then I have acquired a Diploma in Counselling Children and Young People and Diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy.

I have also attended training courses specialising in Loss and Bereavement and Sexual Abuse.
