About me


If you are reading this then I imagine you are in a place in your life where you may feel you need a bit of extra support, a listening and supportive ear, somewhere you can talk through whatever you are going through without fear of being judged or of upsetting someone.

So if you feel

- Anxious

- Overwhelmed

- Not good enough

- Trapped

- Stressed

And if you are Struggling to sleep and/or a relationship in your life is in trouble, coming to an end or ended and you are finding it hard

​I can help you to;

- Take control of your thoughts

- Decide what is important to you

- Understand what you want/need and be able to get this.

- Feel more confident in you and the decisions you make

- Break free from old habits

​I am an experienced counsellor who can help you sort out the tangle in your head/life and feel calm, more in control and confident. I am a registered member of the BACP and offer individual and couples/relationship counselling in Chorley, Adlington and surrounding areas.

When you come to see me I will offer you the time and space to focus on yourself, to discover what matters to you, work with you, without passing judgement, supporting you to achieve your goals in whatever way you need.

​You’re looking for support and it’s difficult to find someone you’re able to open up to. It is hard to know if I’m right for you from reading a few words online. This is why I offer a free 30 minute chat, face to face or over the phone, so you feel at ease when choosing me to support you during this difficult time in your life.

Sessions are confidential.
