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

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.

Key details

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.
