I offer a safe, supportive and confidential space in Chapel Allerton where you can explore whatever problems and issues are troubling you. Talking through problems with someone outside your circle of friends or family can help you see things more clearly and understand more about yourself. The counselling rooms I work from are easily accessible, with parking nearby and good public transport links.
I have appointments available during the day (including early morning appointments), evenings and weekends. I can offer an initial session where you can find out more about counselling and whether or not you want to work with me. There is a charge of £20 for this initial session. Please do contact me if you want any more information.

I am qualified in the Relational Model. This model recognises the importance of relationships in our early development, in shaping our sense of self and in our adult experience. It also regards the quality of the relationship between counsellor and client as one of the most important factors in counselling work.
I have a particular interest and experience in bereavement and trauma. I am trained in the Rewind technique which can be particularly helpful for anyone who has experienced a traumatic event or is troubled by phobias. I am also an accredited trainer of The Rewind Technique and a member of IARTT (International Association for Rewind Trauma Therapy). I am experienced at working in a multi cultural environment and have spent some time volunteering for FAMSA in South Africa. I can support you with areas such as anxiety, relationship issues, family issues, low self esteem and depression. I also have experience of gender dysphoria and transsexualism.
