About me and my therapy practice
When life feels tough, family and friends can help, but sometimes it’s useful to talk to someone, who's here simply for you. As a qualified counsellor I offer a safe space to listen to you, where you don’t need to pretend that everything’s ok, where you can say what you really feel without fear of judgment.
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
Low mood and feelings of depression
Low self-esteem or low self-confidence
LGBT+ clients and issues of gender, sexuality and identity
