About me

I am a qualified Person-Centred, CBT, (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) NLP, (Neuro Lynguistic Programming) therapist and a registered member of the BACP. I have many years’ experience counselling and supporting adults, young people and children. I have worked as a counsellor in schools around the North West, supporting children from Key Stage 1 to Key Stage 4. Helping them to explore their feelings through play and creative activities.

I also offer outdoor ‘walk and talk’ therapy for my young people and adults.

Sometimes communicating therapeutically with people side by side in nature can be very therapeutic, non-threatening and empowering. Over the past three years, I have been involved in setting up a young person’s counselling service within an established and highly respected women’s centre in Merseyside. I am also funded by a thriving men’s centre in Merseyside to provide much needed 1:1 counselling for men in the community. With Adults and young people I work in an integtative way, this means a flexible way of supporting people’s needs, with the use of tools and methods from the variety of therapeutic models I have studied over my career; this creates an individual way of working therapeutically that best supports each person.

Within my service I also offer therapeutic hypnotherapy which is successful in increasing motivation or altering unhelpful behaviour patterns.

Member organisations

BACP

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.
