About me

I am passionate about helping people to become everything they want to  be and  that I know that they can become. I believe that everyone we meet in life is afraid of something, loves something and has lost something.

In the process of counselling we will engage in a form of psychological or talking therapy that will offer you the chance to change how you feel and to live better.

I am an Integrative Counsellor, and work using a combination of: Person Centred Therapy, Psychodynamic Therapy and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. I have  further training in Cognitive Behavioural Therapies ,  Counselling Children and  Adolescents. I am an accredited member of the BACP and also an EMDR(Eye Movement  Desensitization And Reprocessing) Practitioner.

I am a Counselling Supervisor and offer supervision  to Qualified and Trainee Counsellors who use Person Centred, CBT, Psychodynamic approaches or an Integrative model.

My background is Nursing and  I have  over 30 years experience of working as a Nurse in various settings such as Hospitals and Care Homes.  I believe this experience ince enhances the quality of my work.

I offer a safe, professional and confidential service at an affordable price for adults of all ages ,children and adolescents.

I am based at Heswall Hills Practice , but cover a wider area that includes  Ellesmere Port , Chester and the Wirral.

I offer face to face counselling on a short or long term basis depending other the person's needs.

Home visits are available following an assessment.

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.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
