About me

Hello and welcome,

You will want to know how I can help you...

As we come towards the end of 2018 do you want your 2019 to be different?

As the days get shorter and the nights longer, now is your chance to change.

Imagine your future without the depression, without the anxiety.

The exhaustion gone....replaced with peace, calmness and relief.

What do I do?

  • I help people change their irrational, negative thinking into positive thoughts.
  • I help people accept themselves for who they really are.
  • I help autistic individuals find their place in a non-autistic world.
  • I help people uncover their amazing qualities.
  • I help clients find their voice.
  • I help encourage clients to develop their own coping strategies.

Counselling can help you. There's no magic wand to make things better, but I can help you see things from different perspectives, and help you deal better with future events.

Why choose me as your counsellor?

I have a BA (Hons) degree in Counselling and I have studied many different models of therapy. I am a registered member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy) and I have several years of experience working with clients.

But what does that actually mean for you?

It means that I am trained to a high level and regulated by a professional body so you know that the work I do is ethically sound. I always have the clients best interest at the centre of my work.

In short, this translates into being able to tailor YOUR therapy to YOUR needs.

Areas of experience

  • Autism/Asperger's syndrome
  • depression
  • stress
  • anxiety
  • low self-esteem
  • bereavement
  • bullying
  • health conditions
  • family issues
  • relationship problems

I also have a special interest in working with clients on the autistic spectrum and their family members. I have experience within this area working for a specialised charity in the Greater Manchester area providing specific counselling for this clientele and have a deep understanding of the challenges and obstacles present for these individuals.
