About me

Does life feel like it's getting on top of you?
Could you benefit from a place to take some time-out?
... to explore your thoughts and feelings
... to get back on a front foot again

Whether you are experiencing specific struggles or difficulties or simply feel that there are changes you would like to make to live a more fulfilling life, therapy can help.  Discovering more about yourself and creating a greater level of self awareness can be incredibly rewarding and empowering.

My name is Patricia and I am a registered Psychotherapist and Hypnotherapist working in private practice from my home in Wigan, Lancashire which is easily accessible from areas throughout the Greater Manchester area, Lancashire, Merseyside and Cheshire.

Online Zoom and telephone counselling sessions are available for individuals and Zoom for couples, who choose to access counselling (not hypnotherapy) in this way as an alternative to meeting in the room. This means we are able to have sessions throughout the UK.

I am committed to providing therapy in a safe, confidential and non-judgemental environment.

Training, qualifications & experience

  • Professional Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling Practice- Prof Dip PsyC (Level 5), registered with National Counselling and Psychotherapy Society (NCPS)
  • Certificate in Hypnotherapy and Counselling Skills (Cert Hyp CS), registered with National Hypnotherapy Society.
  • Post Graduate Certificate- Managing Health & Social Care-MHSC.

I am experienced working with clients with a range of issues, including, but not exclusively:

Anxiety, depression, stress, self limiting behaviours, PTSD/CPTSD, bereavement and loss, trauma, abuse, domestic violence, gender identity. 

I have a special interest in working with people who are in or are surviving relationships with narcissistic and borderline partners.

I have over 20 years' experience working with neurtodiverse clients; those on the autistic spectrum and with dual diagnoses including ADHD, bi-polar disorder and learning disabilitires.

I also have a particular interest and extensive experience of working with actors, artists and performers and those training in the arts.

Wheelchair user access
Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
