Hi I'm Yvonne, I'm a fully qualified Person Centred Counsellor currently in private practice in St Helens and Rainhill.
At some point in our life we may experience periods where we need additional support to manage a difficult situation, work through a particular issue, or understand something from our past. This at times can lead us to feel alone and not knowing which way to turn. Whilst friends and family can be a huge source of love and support, at times we need someone impartial to help us make sense of things.
I am offering a confidential, empathic, respectful and non-judgemental environment. In order for you to explore and process any challenges or struggles your having at the moment.
I regard myself as a warm, gently challenging counsellor, very passionate about the courage it takes to share very deep emotional issues. I take great care and respect in order to work together, carefully looking at any issues with my clients to help them get the best out of life and move forward.
I offer a free 30min initial meeting to consider whether the service I offer is right for you

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.
