About me

I provide a warm, friendly but professional service to my clients in an empathic and confidential environment to help you feel relaxed and comfortable.

My name is Philly and I have been a practising counsellor, based in Astley, for the past 10 years. I live in Astley, near Atherton. I'm married with two grown up children. I qualified from Salford University with a DipHE in Person Centred Counselling.

I tailor therapy to fit clients' needs in a warm, friendly environment where confidentiality is paramount. My aim is to empower clients to be able to help themselves whilst still feeling supported and professionally guided by someone who genuinely cares.

Counselling and therapy can help with a range of problems and issues, including:

  • Low self-esteem
  • Stress
  • Problems in your relationship
  • Anxiety
  • Feeling down and despondent
  • Issues affecting children and young people
  • Bereavement
  • Redundancy
  • Family changes
  • Divorce and separation
  • Bullying

My practice in Astley is within easy reach of all the neighbouring towns and other parts of the north west of England. It's conveniently located not far from the East Lancashire Road and close to a main bus route.

Training, qualifications & experience

  • Counselling Cert.
  • DipHE Counselling
  • Post Diploma in Counselling Children and Young People

I have a very varied and experienced background within counselling. I have gained a diverse experience by working within a local GP's surgery, the Well Women Centre at Leigh and from the Worsley Centre for Counselling and Psychotherapy as well as from my own practice. As a result I am able to offer guidance and support covering a wide range of issues to both male and female adults as well as young people.
