About me and my therapy practice
I am a counsellor and psychotherapist working in the Garstang area and Lancaster. I offer phone and online (video) appointments as well as face-to-face.
I believe in tailoring my approach to the needs and experiences of the individual client, and my training in Integrative Psychotherapy (MA) helps me to do this. Like all counsellors, I offer a safe and confidential space for you to explore any issues that are causing you distress. In working together towards your goals, I can also suggest specific approaches that might help you to move forward.
After a successful academic career, including management roles, I decided to train as a psychotherapist when I realised that my main skills and interests lay in the relationships I had with my colleagues and students. My background in research and education also means that I really enjoy the opportunities for continuous professional development that are a key part of my obligations to you as a BACP-registered therapist.
I offer appointments both during the day and in the evenings. Contact me for a free, no obligation 30-minute initial consultation by phone, online or in person.
I have experience of working in a general counselling service and with clients in recovery from drug and alcohol addiction, as well as the broad experience gained through my private practice.
I enjoy working with people on the autism spectrum and I have undertaken relevant training (e.g. National Autistic Society courses).
