Zoe McPherson BA (Hons) BACP Accredited Counsellor and Supervisor
I am a qualified, experienced and Accredited (BACP) counsellor and qualified IEMT practitioner. I offer short and long term therapy to adults and children. I have a First Class Honours Degree and many post grad qualifications; I am currently studying for a Masters in Counselling and Psychotherapy.
Therapy is a collaboration, where we will work together to explore what is going on for you; life changes, stresses, or deeper childhood issues that may be holding you back. I will aim to be warm and respectful and above all mindful of you and your process.
The first appointment is an opportunity for you to see if I am the right person for you.
I work from two locations in Burnley.

"I turned a corner after my sessions with Zoe. I'm now more positive and I have a whole new outlook on life"
"I was nervous about seeing a therapist at first, I had already seen one person in the past who was unsuccessful in helping me so I didn't really have am open mind about it. But once I started seeing Zoe I really got relaxed and every week I found myself getting better and better mentally. I would really recommend her"
"Very professional and trustworthy service. Zoe is an excellent counsellor. She listens and makes you feel so at ease. She gives you excellent strategies and guides you with things that are bothering you. She is very kind and I would without hesitation recommend her"
