About me

“Where talk exists, so does hope” - Matt Haig

I am here to help with any concerns you have including generalised anxiety disorder, stress or anxiety or any of the related disorders such as depression, also relationship issues, couples or family issues or any other concerns in an open, confidential and welcoming atmosphere without any judgements or criticism.

I offer an initial FREE no obligation 30 minute consultation to explain the counselling process.

I am here to listen, explore and find the feelings that are arising in you, so you can make an informed choice on how to move forward and collaboratively work with strategies.

My background is in the engineering section of the lift industry, which I have been involved in for over 40 years and currently run my own Lift Consultancy company as well as my own private counselling practice. 

You will be taking to a practical man who has lived and worked in the commercial world and also works in a therapeutic environment. I understand the world of work, the life balances and the associated stresses, changes, concerns and issues that may arise.

I have extensive experience in grief/bereavement counselling should you want to talk to someone about your loss or someone close to you.

I work from my home in Haslington near Crewe and can also make home visits by prior arrangement. I have worked as a practicing counsellor since 2010, registered with the British Association for Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP) and carry full insurance.

So what is the next step, at the head of the page you can see my contact details use either email, phone or text. I welcome questions if you need some further clarification.

Here's to your improved mental health, you have taken the first step.

Member organisations

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.

Accredited register membership

Key details

Wheelchair user access
Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
