About me

I am an experienced person-centred counsellor based in Congleton, committed to providing a high quality professional practice. I offer a safe and respectful environment to enable you to explore your issues in a non-judgemental confidential space.

If you (or someone close to you) is struggling with anxiety, low mood or depression, bereavement, low self esteem or confidence, family or relationship issues, bullying, behavioural issues, abuse or similar problems, then please contact me to discuss how I can help.

Your counselling will be tailored to suit your individual needs, be that short or long term therapy, and I may draw on other approaches such as CBT and solution focused therapy, or use creative interventions such as mindfulness, drawing and visualisation when appropriate.

I offer counselling to Children (5+), Young People, Adults and Family Groups.

I hold a valid Enchanced DBS Certificate.
