About me and my therapy practice
I have experience in offering telephone and online counselling, and have availability to offer both at this time.
I am a fully qualified and very experienced counsellor. I have gained my experience in a number of settings, including as a staff counsellor within the NHS, as a counsellor within a hospice and as a psychological therapist within an NHS mental health service. In addition to my private practice, I also work as a counselling trainer and supervisor.
I hope to be able to offer you a professional and confidential relationship in which to work, with you, on whatever issues have led you to seek counselling. I know, from personal experience, the value of being able to talk, without fear of judgement, to someone who is outside of the situation and who is interested in how I see and experience things.
I work from a person-centred integrative perspective and, as well as person-centred counselling, I am able to offer CBT (cognitive-behavioural therapy). I have experience of working with clients on a very broad range of issues, but specialise in working with bereavement and loss; abuse, including in childhood; anxiety, and issues related to trauma/PTSD.
I offer counselling in my very comfortable and private counselling room in my home in Crewe, and there is plenty of parking nearby. I live about a mile and a half from Crewe train station and I am on a bus route from Crewe town centre.
Online, telephone and face to face therapy for individuals and couples.
My first session
I do not offer first sessions free of charge but I consider all first sessions to be exactly that; an opportunity for client and counsellor to meet and to see whether or not they believe they can usefully work together, with no expectation that clients will choose to continue on after this first session.
