Are you working from home or just stuck at home. I can offer counselling sessions via zoom, WhatsApp or by telephone,this is a stressful time for a lot of people and it really can help to talk things through even if we can’t do it face to face at the moment. I am a BACP registered counsellor based in Nantwich town centre I have worked as a counsellor in primary and secondary schools and in private practice for the last 18 years. I can offer a private and confidential counselling service to adults and young people.
I have years of experience of working with children, both in primary and secondary school settings,dealing with issues of self-harm,anxiety,panic attacks,exam stress, bullying and issues around sexuality and gender. If your child is having problems then please contact me and hopefully we will be able to find a way forward.
I can offer a safe place for you so that together we can work out your issues of concern,explore feelings and emotions and talk in confidence so that you may be able to view things more clearly and with less stress.
Almost anything that causes you concern can be the starting point for counselling, to improve self esteem and confidence and to be supported through a difficult time.

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.
