About me

The first step can often be the hardest; talking to someone who is removed from your situation can help. I am a qualified and experienced counsellor with hundreds of hours of client work. I will provide you with a safe, confidential, calm and non-judgemental therapeutic space. I have a MA in counselling and I am a registered member of the BACP (British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists).

In addition to my private work I have worked in four NHS hospitals counselling patients and staff. I also volunteered for three years at a University counselling students. I have worked with men and women between the ages of 18 and 80. I offer short-term focussed sessions or long-term exploratory sessions, whichever suits the client's needs. I know that a friendly and professional client/counsellor relationship can be helpful and healing.

I have a private practice on the outskirts of Chester with parking and easy access. I will work with your needs and at your pace to explore and resolve your issues.
