About me

Hi, thank you for taking the time to read my profile. I can offer you a safe place in which to explore, a non-judgemental approach and a keenness to empower you to achieve true happiness. 

I am a  person centred counsellor, with several years of experience, offering counselling from my home in Cronton, Widnes, both face to face and online. I am experienced in working with various issues, and can work with you when life feels too overwhelming. 

I offer a free 20 minute introductory session for you to get both a feel for me, and the counselling experience. 

I am fully insured and offer evening and weekend appointments.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
