About me

I am a professionally qualified Counsellor/Psychotherapist, with extra training in Cognitive Behavioural Therapeutic Skills and Theory and Applied Suicide Intervention Skills. I am also a Relate trained Relationship Counsellor and am a fully insured registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy. I also offer Integral Eye Movement Therapy which can hep with past or recent traumatic experiences.  I work across various sites on the Wirral and have experience in working with Young People and Adults.  I am currently extending my study of Cognitive Behavioural Approaches with the University of Derby.

I can offer face to face, telephone and online counselling.

I understand that taking the first step, when you feel that you may need some extra help, can be very frightening so to contact a counsellor shows great courage. I have experience with working with a wide range of people, men and women, younger and older and have worked with Wirral MIND, Age UK, WIRED, Action for Children and Headway. Our first meeting will be an assessment to give you the opportunity to explore what is troubling you, now, and the issues you may like to work on.  My therapy rooms are private, comfortable and non clinical, have designated parking and are accessible via public transport.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have over 20 years experience of supporting people through voluntary and paid roles in the community before training to become a Counsellor.

I have  worked with The TV Programme Dr Christian Will See You Now and can assist with weight loss issues using Cognitive Behavioural applications.

I am a Relate trained Relationship Counsellor which enables me to work with couples to explore any difficulties they may be experiencing in their life together.

I have worked extensively with people and their families coming to terms with an Acquired Brain Injury such as Stroke, Brain Tumour, Assault and Epilepsy and have undertaken further training to enable me to work with in this area in a counselling capacity.

I have experience, through work with Action for Children, of working with Young People struggling with various issues from anxiety and depression to body image issues and behavioural problems. I have taken further training to understand the impact of Neurodevelopmental Conditions such as ADHD, Dyspraxia and Autistic Spectrum Disorders. I continue to work with Young People at my offices in Heswall and Birkenhead.

I am comfortable working and communicating with people from all backgrounds and have experience of working with people who have experienced trauma, abuse, addiction, depression, marital difficulties and child-parent conflicts, bereavement, domestic violence, long term health issues, caring responsibilities and suicide. Miscarriage, teenage angst, anxiety, generalised anxiety, social anxiety, health anxiety, eating disorders, body image issues, ADHD and adverse childhood experiences.

A free 15 minute consultation via telephone, email, Whatsapp or text message will take place following your contact.  All sessions booked must then be paid for in advance to secure the session booking.  Payments can then be made by debit/credit card, bank transfer, cash or cheque on receipt of my invoice.

Sessions of 50 minutes give plenty of time to explore the issues you would like to work with however,  longer sessions of 90 minutes may, in some cases, help to resolve issues in a shorter timescale than a standard 50 minute session.
