About me

Counselling helps when our usual ways of dealing with unhappiness are no longer working. I provide a safe, professional and confidential talking therapy service for adults who may struggle with a variety of distressing issues, such as anxiety, relationship issues, panic and depression. My work is influenced by the Person-Centred Approach based on the principles of acceptance, empathic understanding and congruence (self-awareness and genuineness). This approach enables me to work ethically, providing people with the opportunity to create significant and lasting change for themselves.,

Based in Cheshire, I am a highly qualified therapist with a PhD in Counselling. As an experienced BACP Registered and Accredited Person-Centred Counsellor and Psychotherapist, I am bound by the Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions and keep up to date with developments in the profession.

My therapeutic experience over the past seven years includes work in a university counselling service, national and independent not for profit organisations, and an occupational health department of a city hospital. I have a wide-ranging knowledge of how the mind and body respond to traumatic events and a lot of experience working with anxiety and depression.

I have published in Illness, Crisis and Loss, and in 2017 contributed a regular, monthly Research into Practice feature in the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy’s monthly magazine Therapy Today. I am Managing Editor of Counselling and Psychotherapy Research and was a Senior Lecturer/Programme Leader in Counselling in Higher Education.  This combination of skill set, and expertise, gives me the edge when helping people with complex needs from all walks of life.

Supervision & training

Clinical supervision fulfils three main functions; gatekeeping (ensuring client safety), supporting supervisees’ professional competency, and enhancing client treatment outcomes. Supervision can support professional development and growth by enabling an environment which encourages self-reflection.
