About me and my therapy practice
Even with those who are closest to you, it can be difficult to find the courage and words to express how you really feel. Finally admitting to someone else that you have real problems might seem overwhelming and fraught with risk of rejection. You may be feeling vulnerable, needy, hopeless, disappointed, sad, lonely, angry, frightened, frustrated, ashamed, unfaithful or unsuccessful.
At my discreet consulting room in Oxton, Wirral, I will offer you a confidential space where your worries and feelings can be listened to and explored without judgment. Whilst I normally charge £40 per session, concessionary rates will be considered. Private parking is available.
As a person-centred counsellor, I believe that when offered a conducive therapeutic environment, clients can begin to think differently about the way they see themselves, the way they behave and ultimately the sense of meaning and fulfilment they find in their lives. I am passionate about my work with all clients but have a special interest in men’s mental health.
If you choose to work with me as your counsellor, I’ll sit with you in your turmoil, in your fear, in your hopes and in your dreams. I won’t offer advice or tell you what to do. I won’t even claim to have the answers. But I will be by your side, as an equal not an expert, and respectfully challenge you where I think it might help.
I hold an MA in Clinical Counselling from the University of Chester and regularly attend training courses and seminars to stay up-to-date with latest ways of working with clients’ complex needs. I have attended training and workshops with Pink Therapy and Gendered Intelligence to help me in my counselling with clients who find it difficult to live with societal expectations of gender and sexuality.
I bring to my work with clients a rich range of life experiences, great commitment and much energy. I may not have a background in social work or medical services like some who train as counsellors but I have milked cows, referenced a library, worked on a production line, managed property portfolios, been a company director and experienced redundancy and business loss.
