About me and my therapy practice

Are you finding life harder than usual? Struggling to find somewhere just to be yourself – or feeling unsure who you are anymore? As a qualified counsellor I can provide a safe space to listen to what you really want to say, without judging you for what you do, say, think or feel. 

I am a qualified counsellor working in South Cheshire. I have an MSc from Keele University in counselling and psychotherapy with a distinction in research and practice.

My professional experience as a counsellor includes work for an adult hospice and for a youth support charity. Previous roles involved working in the law, NHS and special needs.

I am a member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy and work to the BACP ethical framework. I also have an enhanced DBS check, safeguarding training to level 2 and professional insurance for your protection and to assure you that I work safely. 

Working with a “person-centred” approach, I accept you, your thoughts, feelings and actions, as you are, without judging you. While I have professional training and life experience, I also take the view that you are the expert on yourself. I seek to bring a warmth and gentleness to my approach, which can help us to face deep and difficult issues together. 

Among the issues/people I work with are:

Anxiety and stress

Autism/ASD and a range of learning disabilities

Bereavement, grief and other types of loss

Bullying and harassment

Carers

Low mood and feelings of depression

Low self-esteem or low self-confidence

Terminal illness
