About me

With more than 10 years experience as a counsellor, I offer a safe, friendly & confidential service for individuals 16 years and over who are experiencing anxiety & stress disorders, depression & other mental health issues.

My roots are in person centered counselling but I also have training in CBT and mindfulness. This means I give clients space to explore their thoughts and feelings at their own pace, a supportive space to help one find the resources and reach your own decisions based on what is right for you. Problems can sometimes seem overwhelming and it's often difficult to see a way forward. Sometimes we need a gentle reminder that they are there and how best to use them.Therapy can help people work through their difficulties,make positive changes and help relieve emotional distress.

I also work with clients using CBT and mindfulness techniques. CBT looks at how our thoughts,feelings and behaviour are interlinked. It is easy to get stuck in a cycle of negative thinking and behaviour patterns and CBT can help with breaking this cycle.

I have worked for over 10 years in various NHS settings. I have also worked within an Occupational Health setting & a Suicide Prevention Helpline. I have an ongoing commitment to continuing professional development & have attended several workshops to support my counselling approach.

Further information

I adhere to the BACP code of ethics.

I can offer daytime/ evening appointments.

When we meet for an initial appointment, we can discuss your difficulties & determine whether I am the right therapist for you. I typically work with short term therapy ( 6-12 sessions ) & long term therapy for those with more complex difficulties. Therapy can be weekly or fortnightly but it will always be tailored to your needs. There is always flexibility in the way we work together & this can be reviewed at anytime.

Consulting rooms are in a safe & relaxed environment.

Rooms are at inmotionclinics on Long lane ( off the A41 ) near to Chester zoo.
