About me

Welcome to my profile, I work as a Qualified Person-Centred Therapist, offering counselling to adults aged 16 years and over.

Counselling or talking therapy can be a great benefit to anyone who feels overwhelmed emotionally or is struggling to cope or come to terms with many life issues.

I offer a professional, yet warm approach to my work, based in a Central Southport office. For extra flexibility, I can offer sessions via skype and telephone.

I have experience in Bereavement, Grief and Loss, family breakdown (separation & divorce). Whole person fertility counselling. Extensive work with body image, weight loss and our relationship to food/eating. Childhood trauma and abuse. Supporting adaptation to major life changes (Disability, illness, menarche, pregnancy & menopause not exclusive). Neurological Diversity; ADHD, ASD. I work with people with generalised anxiety disorder, anxiety, panic attacks, depression and various family issues.

I believe that in working with an individual it is important to appreciate that we are each complex and unique, not only emotionally, but physically, mentally and spiritually. These connections are acknowledged and included in my approach to working with a person as a whole.

Further information

My ongoing personal passion is studying the differences in brain development according to primary hormones (oestrogens, progesterone, testosterone) and how this affects our gender and brain development. Our early Attachments and how this can affect the nature and type of relationships we have with others as adults.

I have experience of working with both men and women from abusive or traumatic childhoods and historical sexual abuse; how this affects our subsequent intimate relationships and our sense of self and body image. Professional support can help to improve our future by supporting this healing and resolution, regaining our sense of empowerment and pleasure in life.

I am passionate about improving fertility chances for individuals and couples, working towards conception by becoming aware of our complex emotions and feelings this may bring up for people during this time.

I have experience in working with anxiety states and depression resulting from major life change.
