Accessing a Counsellor
The initial decision to seek out counselling or therapy can be a daunting one, particularly if it is something that you have never accessed or experienced before.
There are multiple services out there and it can be difficult to decide which is the best choice for you. Therefore, it is important that you have as much information as possible when choosing a counsellor. If you cannot find the answers to your question here then feel free to contact me through any of the details on this site.
What I Offer
I offer a free initial telephone or Skype consultation for new clients. This is so I can introduce myself and so you have the option of asking questions about my practice. It can also help to 'break the ice' before meeting face to face, and enables you to consider if you want to take up the service.
I offer brief and long-term face to face counselling to individuals and couples within a safe and comfortable environment in Central Liverpool. I also offer Online and Telephone counselling sessions.
I am a qualified person-centred counsellor. I have experience of working with clients who have presented with a variety of issues, such as grief, bereavement and loss, alcohol and substance misuse, boundaries, relationship difficulties, confidence building, identity, personal development, self-esteem and sexuality.
I have experience of working with students and employee's with regard to academic and work related stress.
If you are unsure if my service would be right for you, then feel free to contact me to discuss further.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a qualified Person-Centred Counsellor.
I also have qualifications in Psychology, Sociology, and Social Work.
I have a broad experience of working with a variety of client issues, including grief, bereavement and loss, alcohol and substance misuse, boundaries, relationship difficulties, confidence building, identity, personal development, self-esteem and sexuality.
I am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP) and I abide by its Code of Ethics. This includes keeping up to date with continuing professional development and supervision.
I have a PhD from Manchester Metropolitan University (July 2017). My thesis explores the concept of ‘boundary’ as understood and experienced by counsellors. It was through my counsellor training that I first gained an interest in ‘boundaries’ and how they are understood and used in therapy. This research has influenced my own practice and I acknowledge boundaries as a key aspect of all counselling relationships.
