About me

We could all use a hand from time to time and I offer that support with a safe and confidential counselling service. I am fully Relate trained to work with couples, or individuals, wanting to focus on relationship issues.

I also work with individuals; whether you are facing a life changing decision, suffering from anxiety or depression, or just feel like things are not quite right, I can help you. I am experienced in working with a wide range of problems and will work with you to explore where you’re at and where you want to be.

I am room based in Warrington and also offer online appointments. Equine Assisted Therapy appointments, or Walk & Talk sessions, are available from a rural location near Wrexham.

Training, qualifications & experience

I hold a Postgraduate Diploma in Relationship Therapy and I am fully Relate trained to work with families, couples and individuals in all areas of relationships.

My work and training moved onto working with children and young people and I hold a Level 4 Certificate in Counselling Children. More recently I have received a Level 5 Diploma in Equine Facilitated Psychotherapy.

My practice integrates various approaches, using mainly psychodynamic and systemic. I also achieved a Certificate in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) Skills to enable me to adopt a Cognitive Behavioural Approach where required.

I am a Registered Member of the National Counselling Society and I adhere to their Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy. I regularly attend continuous professional development training and am supervised by a qualified supervisor as part of my professional status.
