About me

*New office location - Stockport Town Centre - taking appointments for mid February now*

Are you living with anxiety or depression, feeling down or going through a life changing event? Are you feeling disconnected, lost or stuck? I am a qualified counsellor, working with adults and couples, providing a safe space to explore these feelings. I am committed to supporting clients whilst they make a difference to their lives and offer a warm, non-judgemental, compassionate and confidential counselling service working from Heaton Moor, Great Moor and remotely.

I like to a build strong and secure relationship with my clients, one based on trust, where you are fully free to be yourself and feel safe to discuss any difficulties you are facing. My aim is to support you whilst we explore what’s happening, gain insight as to why, and by working together, help you overcome these issues and bring positive change. Together, we will look at your patterns of behaviour, attachment styles, your needs and how you communicate these, learn about your coping strategies (do you abandon yourself, shut down, are you a chronic people pleaser, are you living in survival mode) explore the root of these and whether they are helpful to you or getting in the way of you living in the way that wish to. Whatever it is, counselling can help and I will provide a warm and supportive environment where you are seen and heard, in confidence and without judgement.

Clients of all ages and from all backgrounds come to therapy for many different reasons. I feel privileged to have supported clients with many issues, including: depression, low self-esteem, grief, shame, stress, anxiety, family and relationship issues, negative thoughts, bereavement and abuse. 

I offer a free initial 20 minute phone call where you can ask any questions you may have and to ensure we are a good fit so that you feel comfortable moving forward. I offer face to face, video and phone sessions – daytime and evening appointments are available. I understand how daunting taking the first step into therapy can be so please feel free to use whichever method of contact you feel most comfortable with - email (please check your spam folder if waiting for a response as replies occasionally end up there), text or WhatsApp and I’ll respond as soon as possible.

I am a member of the BACP and adhere to their ethical framework. No two therapies look the same and as a qualified integrative counsellor I will draw on a combination of Person Centred Therapy (PCT), Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Transactional Analysis (TA) to tailor our work together to suit your unique needs.

Everyday I work with people going though the most difficult of times and I believe that through the connection we build and the work we do together you will have a better understanding of who you really are, have compassion for yourself, feel more connected to others and have a sense of your purpose and direction in life.

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

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
