About me and my therapy practice
We all have times in our lives when we struggle, if you are experiencing one of these times, maybe now feels like the right time to reach out for help to find your way through. I have been where you are now and it was through finding a supportive counsellor, that gave me the space to really be heard, that led to my journey into becoming a counsellor myself.
Asking for help is a major step, but from personal experience the ability to express my thoughts and feelings to somebody outside my immediate network has helped me process the events in my life and make meaningful changes which have not only helped me but those around me.
Our journeys, experiences and life events are all different but if you feel the time is right for you to express yourself then please reach out to me for an initial 20 minute-ish call so we can establish if we can gel as people and that I am the right counsellor for you.
I offer in person, online (Zoom) and phone call sessions and have availability to hopefully fit in with your lifestyle and the demands on you, including weekends and evenings. My first session is always charged at a £30 fee as we use this session to get to know each other properly as well as some contractual stuff that I must do as a counsellor as part of the ethical framework that we all work under.
For in person sessions, I work from an established therapy centre in Lymm, which is a comfortable and safe space for us to focus on how I can assist you. It is easily accessible from Warrington, Altrincham, Hale, Bowden and Sale plus surrounding areas and has free parking available.
If you think the time is right, then please message be via the directory so we can arrange a initial consultation and thank you for taking this first step.
In my practice, I aim to offer, a safe space where you can explore what is going on in your life, at your own pace and help you to discover how to move forward and have worked for over 2 years as a theraputic counsellor covering a varied portfolio of issues.
I am a fully qualified member of the British Association of Councillors and Psychotherapists (BACP) and fully insured. This means I am regulated by their ethical framework which means I can offer you the best care possible.
I am trained in Person Centred Therapy and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and will use these skills dependent on the methods that feel most helpful to you.
