About me

Are you feeling overwhelmed and struggling to deal with life's daily challenges? Have you been surviving for too long and not being living your life to the fullest? Are you suffering from depression, anxiety, low self esteem or another issue that affects your life?

We all feel a little lost sometimes, don't know what decisions are the best ones for us and let the stress of our lives get us down. Together, we can confront your issues and find ways to make your life more manageable. Talking can be the first step in helping you to overcome the problems that you face.

I offer:

-In-person therapy sessions in Knutsford

- Walking Therapy in Marple, Stockport and Woodford

- Online and telephone sessions

I have worked with many people who are having difficulties with many issues including anxiety, depression, bereavement, family issues, stress, feeling sad, and loneliness. Helping them to find the root of their problems and to facilitate them in easing the pain they are going through. 

I am trained in Person-Centred Therapy (PCT), Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Transactional Analysis (TA).

Some people may find it easier and more convenient to have sessions from the comfort of their own home. For this, I offer confidential online and phone therapy.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a Registered MBACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) and work within their ethical framework.

  • ABC Level 4 Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling
  • ABC Level 3 Certificate in Counselling Skills

Member organisations

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Accredited register membership
