About me

I am a Person Centred Counsellor based in Rodney Street, Liverpool. I work with adults young people and children. .

I have more than 25 years experience working with children, young people and adults with many diverse issues. Both in private practice and in school settings. I have worked extensively with many clients both men and women who are survivers of sexual abuse.

I have worked as a volunteer counsellor with Liverpool Bereavement Service. I have also worked extensively in the NHS counselling clients with various presenting issues such as; low self esteem, low mood, depression, anxiety disorders, phobias and attachment issues.

I offer a warm, genuine, non judgemental, confidential environment where you can feel free to explore your issues and understand your feelings or anxieties. I have a non directive approach which enables you to move forward at your own pace.

People come to counselling for many different reasons I understand that for some, beginning counselling can be a daunting prospect, I can assure you that you will not be judged in any way and any issues you wish to discuss will be confidential.

Member organisations


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.
