I am a qualified Person-Centred counsellor, a CBT, (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) practitioner, an NLP, Master Practitioner (Neuro Lynguistic Programming) practitiner, a Hypnotherapist, an OldPain2Go practitioner, an IEMT practitioner 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 four 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 co-ordinate this successful service in Litherland and our outreach with the Early Help Team in North Sefton. 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 offer therapeutic hypnotherapy which is successful in increasing motivation or altering unhelpful behaviour patterns.
The change work that my NLP, OldPain2Go and IEMT work produces can be life changing. I use all these tools to support my clients.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)
BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).
Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.
Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.
All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
