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. Counselling is tailored to suit your individual needs, be that short or long term therapy. 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.
