"I believe we all have a right to be heard - once that quiet inner VOICE within us feels sufficiently safe, strong and confident to speak out. And when you do, it will set you free...
I work Integratively meaning I use a variety of therapeutic approaches to work with the issues that you present in counselling with me. I have been a therapist for 16 years and helped hundreds of clients. In my practice I work with young people, adults and older people who present with a vast range of emotional and psychological problems. As a professional therapist your mental health and your well being matters to me enormously. Your healing process towards a more positive and healthy 'you' is something we work towards together.
The therapy relationship is key to clients feeling safe and that they are working with someone whom they can place their trust in. Trust can take some time to develop so we go at your pace, in your time, and you have space to communicate openly and honestly about the things that are troubling you. Not all clients aim for an outcome or resolution. But we can arrive at aims and goals in therapy and work towards their resolution.
The current Coronavirus pandemic presents new and challenging ways to provide counselling to the public. We are living in difficult and times and problems can seem impossible to resolve even the smallest of issues.
Talking with a skilled and experienced Counsellor can help you to feel heard, achieve clarity and understanding. It can provide you with guidance and direction and help you to get to where you want to be in life.
My key approaches include Person Centred, Psychodynamic, Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Inner Child work, Transactional Analysis, Schema Therapy.
My areas of expertise and competency are - please see below.
Coronavirus Pandemic will bring with it unique issues for each and every one of us and I am ready and willing to work with these problems with clients.
I accept my clients totally and unconditionally with warmth and genuine desire and commitment to help; I am motivated to helping you within my capacity as a professionally trained and experienced Counsellor.
My phone, Skype and email counselling service extends to:
United Kingdom, Scotland, Wales and Ireland.
I provide counselling from my own dedicated office Ellesmere Port.
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy or CBT is a scientifically tested therapy approach which focuses on creating postitive change in the here and now. It can help to create lasting alternative ways to think, feel and behave. I feel passionate about this particular therapy approach and I can work with specific issues such as anxiety, depression, panic attacks, OCD, agoraphobia, social anxiety, and many, many more issues.
Additionally, I am a Counselling Supervisor for qualified and unqualified/trainee counsellors. Supervision is an essential element of safe and ethical therapeutic practice and it is a requirement of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP).

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.
Accredited register membership

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
