About me

Hi, I am a qualified integrative counsellor working with adults and children from Hamilton Square in Birkenhead Wirral as well as Stanlaw Abbey Business Centre, Dover Dr. Ellesmere Port. I provide a confidential service within a sensitive, warm and safe space for you to explore your own situation.

How counselling can help?

I believe that a secure therapeutic relationship allows connection to the true self, beliefs and values. It can also support finding greater peace of mind. Together we can discuss your concerns and look at your experiences in a non-judgmental, accepting environment. I will not make decisions for you or impose my own opinion as I believe each person holds their own solutions within themselves.

Counselling is for people challenged with mental health, of course it is. But it is for people that are struggling with, anxiety, with life, with relationships, with self esteem, and with communication that could do with some help BEFORE it becomes a mental health issue.

I provide support for people suffering with anxiety, depression, relationship issues, bereavement, self esteem, bullying, self harm, suicidal thoughts and more. If you need to find some space to talk to someone about your situation or how you feel, please contact me and I should be able to offer you an appointment within a few days. I provide a free, 30-minute no obligation consultation in which we can look at your main concerns. Whether therapy can help depends, in my opinion, on the relationship between us. The consultation will help us to establish if we can work together therapeutically and to go through what counselling can offer you in more detail. If you find it difficult to get to Birkenhead I am also doing phone and SKYPE counselling sessions.

I work closely with another counsellor as VIEW Counselling and Psychotherapy which provides an advantage of choice. Please visit our website to find out more.

A bit about me

I find people very interesting and feel very privileged to be in a position where I get to be let in to peoples most private spaces and share a short time in their life. I get to witness how they transform, to be present in the room when my clients get those amazing light bulb moments, those new points of awareness, when new perspectives are being made clear. I always have your best interest at heart.

Doing this for a few years now I feel very lucky to do a job that I absolutely love, a job I currently do for free (volunteering) as well as with paid clients, I have an insatiable thirst to learn more and more techniques and modalities, increase my own awareness and expand my skills.

I am a Registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I am fully insured and hold an enhanced DBS check.

I provide counselling in English and Hebrew

Member organisations

BACP

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.
