Welcome to Higher Walton Counselling. Do you get frustrated with constant negative thoughts, overthinking about past events or even the days and weeks ahead. Are painful feelings stopping you from reaching your full potential. Living with anxious thoughts can often feel like you are carrying huge baggage on your shoulders, leaving you feeling exhausted and overwhelmed.
I offer an empathic and non judgemental space for you to explore any issues that may be important, upsetting or distressing to you within a supportive and confidential environment . Together we can unpack the discomfort and develop new skills allowing you to feel lighter and empowered.
I work as an integrative counsellor which allows me to combine ideas and insights from various counselling models and theories. Each person is unique and therefore no one approach suits all.

I am a member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and adhere to their ethics and code of practice as well as receiving regular clinical supervision.
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.
