I'm here to help you work through the emotion your feeling, and to support you with feeling better, as the counselling process takes place.
I've over 12 years experience in counselling and psychotherapy and have helped hundreds of people find happiness in their lives.
I enjoy working with people and put the therapeutic relationship at the heart of the counselling process. I use a range of techniques and theory to best support you, it's very much a collaborative process, focused on achieving positive well-being for yourself.
The counselling that I offer is for adults on a one to one basis. This takes place in two locations depending on your preference
Warrington town centre
Manchester city centre
Both locations are easily accessible and are warm, comforting environments.
In addition, I've 11 years experience in the Health and Social Care field managing a Complex Care service. I'm interested in people and mental health. I deliver training in the local area and also am a mental health champion, promoting positive mental health messages.
If you think you may need some help with the day to day anxiety of life, your emotional wellbeing, or even just someone to talk to, then please do not hesitate to get in touch by telephone or by email.

A qualified Integrative Counsellor and Registered Member of the BACP (professional body).
I've been offering counselling to adults on a one to one basis for a number of years, I truly enjoy my work
I first entered this path through a personal difficult life experience. In the past I've struggled with my emotional wellbeing and understand how difficult it can be to make sense of it and come out of the other end feeling better. This experience inspired me to help people and to try and support them with maintaining positive wellbeing.
In addition to counselling, I also successfully manage a mental health support service for vulnerable adults living in the community; the goal is to promote independent living.
Having spent 11 years in the mental health health field I have developed a solid understanding of what it means to be mentally healthy. My work is dedicated to helping people find a positive and healthy attitude towards their own mental health.

I offer and open ended contract. The end of the counselling process very much depends on how our work together is developing and is informed by your experience as well as mine.
