About me and my therapy practice
Hi there! I have been a practicing counsellor / psychotherapist in the North West since 2010 and moved to Glossop in early 2015.
In the past I have worked for an NHS counselling service, four charities and in private practice. This has given me a lot of experience of supporting people with many different life challenges.
Currently I provide counselling for young people at 42nd Street, a long-standing Greater Manchester charity. I also have a number of places in my Glossop-based private practice for people of all ages.
What do I feel is important in my work?
- providing a welcoming, safe and supportive environment for
clients to deal with personal challenges,
- building a comfortable and trusting relationship, and
- offering various ways of working - within my training - because
different people (and different problems) benefit from different
In early 2017 I completed the standard training in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) therapy and I am now working towards accreditation. I am glad to be able to offer this highly effective trauma therapy at a reasonable rate.
Informal enquiries by phone or email are welcome. I feel it's really important you find the right counsellor, so I offer a free 30 minutes face-to-face or telephone consultation, to help you decide.
Please have a look at my website www.growing-well.co.uk for more detailed information about the way I work, my qualifications, and testimonials from former clients.
