About me

Hello and thank-you for searching for a therapist.

Please feel free to read through my profile, and if you feel comfortable with what has been presented please contact me for your initial consultation by email or phone.

This is an opportunity to ask some questions to establish if I am the right person for you to work with. Working in private practice in Cheshire, we can arrange an appointment face to face in Sandbach, Congleton or Bowdon, via the telephone or online through Skype.

When life presents various challenges in life discussing this with someone who will not judge you maybe your best option. My training has enabled me to support you as you make sense of your thoughts and feelings and behaviours, so don’t feel that you have to do this alone. I work in an integrative way that allows me to be flexible, to use various therapeutic models of therapy.

I create an atmosphere where you will feel comfortable and safe, I’m easy to talk to. Our work is confidential. You choose what you share with me.

At times therapy may feel challenging however if you are open and willing to give it a try then therapy can also be incredibly freeing.

I look forward to working with you.

Member organisations


British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
