About me and my therapy practice


Welcome. I'm Zoe Purse and I provide counselling to individuals and young people in the lovely Rossendale Valley, Lancashire. My Counselling studio is in a purpose built log cabin set in my garden, at the foot of the Pennine hills, providing a relaxed and peaceful setting, whilst being easily accessible to the A56, M66 and M60.

I also work part time at a hospice in Manchester supporting individuals/young people with life limiting illness and people who are suffering bereavement and loss. I am passionate about helping people who are going through difficult, emotional turmoil and understand that everyone is unique. I offer people support with understanding and empathy along side being non-judgmental, caring and genuine.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a fully qualified counsellor and a member of The British Association for Counsellors and Psychotherapists. My counselling experience is diverse and includes working with people who have struggled with bereavement, anxiety, depression, work stress, identity and relationship issues (with friends, family or work colleagues). I have helped people cope with life limiting illness and issues such as emotional trauma caused by abuse.

I have worked in an education setting for many years and so have a deep understanding of the pressures and stresses of work from both staff and students. I work with young people using a variety of approaches including creative therapy.

Whilst Person Centered theory informs my practice, I use a client-focused, integrative approach which simply means that I will work in a way that suits you and your needs. I welcome people from all faiths, backgrounds, cultures and LGBT communities with warmth, openness and a non-judgmental approach.
