I am a Nantwich based counsellor and psychotherapist. I have worked as a counsellor and therapist for many years and have extensive experience:
Anxiety; depression; stress; relationships; anxiety disorders; low self-esteem; confidence; couples counselling; suicidal tendencies; BPD; abuse...and many others
I work with the person in front of me as an individual and often combine therapies depending on the client's needs. I use techniques from person-centred, CBT, solution focussed therapy, behavioural therapy, IFS, Gestalt and Schema therapy and I continue to expand my working tools all the time.
It is important that the client feels safe and I work hard to ensure that is the case. My therapy room is within my home, and that creates a homely and relaxed atmosphere.
It can be hard to admit that you need extra support, I am aware of that, so that enforces even more for me the need to create a safe space where you know you can speak and feel as comfortable as possible within what is shared in our sessions.
I have a lot of experience with online and telephone counselling also, meaning you can stay home whilst we talk

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.

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).
