About me

I am the Founding Director of The Liverpool Centre for Counselling and Psychotherapy, working online for the last two years. Online sessions are an easy and convenient way to access an experienced counsellor and psychotherapist, with the added advantage of cost savings to you as I do not have to pay overheads for an expensive office anymore.

In 22 years working as a full-time counsellor and psychotherapist I have helped people from all walks of life. I can bring my experience (around 16,000 practice hours) to you to assist in achieving your goals. If you are struggling in relationships, including the relationship with yourself, internal anger, shame etc., or if you are stuck in revolving experiences, suffering from short or long term traumatic experience, or recovering from abuse in its many forms, I believe I can assist. Finding the right person for you is crucial, and I am always happy to answer questions about the sometimes-bewildering array of training and qualifications that counsellors have, with no obligation to use my services.

I can be flexible to accommodate clients who have busy lives, varying commitments, doctors, for example, or who live abroad. I do not adhere to the 'one treatment fits all' approach and am always happy to discuss what treatment options are best for you.

Throughout my time as a counsellor and psychotherapist, I have worked hard to understand people from a real perspective, not just from a textbook one. I don't believe I can help someone without first really tuning in to who they are, to properly listen to what they have to say and understand how they see themselves and their world.

In my time as the Director of the Liverpool Centre for Counselling and Psychotherapy, I developed it from a single room practice into one of the most successful private counselling and psychotherapy service on Merseyside, and I still adhere to the philosophy of professionalism, integrity and client-focused service that made us so popular.

I am a Member of the BACP, Number 376754 and adhere to their code of professional ethics.

Member organisations


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.

Accredited Register Scheme

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

My experience is that most issues arise from either; conflict with the outside world and others, or from a conflicted relationship with ourselves, internal anger, hamster wheel thinking, feeling and behaving etc.
