I have been counselling now over 5 years working with a variety of client presenting issues such as anxiety, depression, anger, confidence issues, bereavement, abuse, self harm and trauma. I have regular supervision as required by BACP and have recently completed my Professional hypnotherapy training and am now an accredited and registered Hypnotherapist which is recognised by the Professional Hypnotherapy Practitioner Association (PHPA)

Being integrative allows me to work with solution focused as well as long term Psychotherapy approach for safe and professional practice. I am a clinical supervisor accredited with ASCENTIS and trained with CRUSE bereavement care and currently work In a prison within the mental health sector. I have previously worked in a GP practice, women's centre and also MHIST Bolton and have a variety of skills and knowledge as well as a clinical background which is extremely helpful and beneficial around ailments and pharmacology.
