About me

Is this for me?

Welcome to Wellbeing in Mind Psychological Therapies. Are you looking to manage problematic symptoms of low mood and anxiety? Have you experienced traumatic events that are impacting your functioning? Do you have relationship difficulties that have been brought about by significant changes in your life? If any of this sounds familiar, the combination of therapies I offer could make a real difference to your wellbeing.


With 15 yrs experience in the NHS and over 10 yrs as a Psychological Therapist, I am fully qualified in CBT, EMDR and IPT therapies. With focus on the treatment of depression, anxiety disorders and interpersonal difficulties, my training and clinical experience combine to offer a fully integrative and individualised approach to reducing symptom distress.

What I offer

If you are looking for a safe, non-judgemental space to explore your difficulties, I offer a warm and supportive environment to help you reclaim your life and feel a real sense of validation for the emotions you're experiencing. I'm here to listen, explore and ultimately support you in becoming your own therapist, in the pursuit of positive lasting change.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy

CBT is a practical, evidence based approach that focuses on the here and now. It looks at links between our thoughts, feelings and behaviours- and when those patterns aren't working for us, it looks at ways to make supported changes, reducing avoidance and finding more balance in our thought processes. CBT is a NICE recommended treatment for depression  and anxiety disorders 

(NICE - National institute of clinical excellence)

Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing
EMDR is a therapy with one foot in the past and one in the present. It looks at our past memories and beliefs, helping us to reprocess our experiences so we can reclaim our life in the here and now.

Interpersonal Psychotherapy
IPT can look at our past, present and future- but with no rush to make changes. It allows the space to explore the emotions related to our depressive symptoms and understand why events in our life can hold so much meaning. When we fully understand our experience- it can then support us to make practical changes if needed.

Integrative Approach
Sometimes we need a little of everything. With integrative therapy, we can use different aspects of each approach to create a treatment that is tailored to your individual presenting problems.

Further information

We offer a range of different therapy modes.

After COVID, remote therapies such as telephone and video sessions have grown in popularity as they offer great flexibility, and for some- a more gentle introduction to therapy.

Our face to face sessions continue to be the most popular option, with some clients liking the distinction between home and therapy life. Having a face to face appointment can allow you to really switch off, remove yourself from your everyday environments, and make sure you prioritise your time for you.

Our face to face sessions are based at Health at Heart; a wellness centre in the centre of Chorley.


Local parking is available - one hour parking outside the venue or just a 3 minute walk away are both short and long stay parking options.
