About me and my therapy practice

I offer brief and long-term face-to-face and telephone counselling for individual adults. Passionate about my work with all clients, I have particular interest in men's mental health. 

If you're struggling with issues that you find too difficult to share with others or just need to feel understood, I can offer you a safe space where you can talk about what is troubling you without judgment or expectation.

As a person-centred counsellor, I will always put your needs first and respect what matters to you. I believe that when you feel understood and valued as an individual, you will begin to be able to think differently about your past, the way you feel about yourself, the way you behave and ultimately the sense of meaning and fulfilment you find in your life.

Alongside my private counselling work, I spent five years with a city centre charity in Liverpool. The role gave me broad experience of working with 18-80 year old clients with diverse counselling needs.

Prior to training as a counsellor, I had a varied work history including labouring on a farm, managing my own business and volunteering in criminal justice/rehab settings. 

I bring energy, creativity and 'whole-of-life experience' to my work with clients but the focus of my attention will always be on understanding you and your experiences.


Practice description

At my discreet consulting room in Pensby (Wirral), I will offer you a confidential space where your worries and feelings can be aired and explored without judgment. Whilst I normally charge £45 per session, concessionary rates will be considered.

I hold an MA in (person-centred) Counselling and regularly attend professional training, seminars and workshops to stay up-to-date with latest ways of working with clients’ needs. 

In particular, I have undertaken online and face-to-face training/professional development with Pink Therapy and Gendered Intelligence. 

I share Gendered Intelligence's vision "of a world where people are no longer constrained by narrow perceptions and expectations of gender, and where diverse gender expressions are visible and valued.

I am committed to anti-oppressive and anti-discriminatory practice. Your age, disability, gender, race, religion or belief, sexual orientation or relationship preference is no barrier to our work together.  



My first session

When you first make contact with me I will suggest we start the process by talking on the telephone for 15 or 20 minutes so that we can 'meet' each other. If you then decide to make an appointment, I'll ask you to consider how we might formulate a working contract so that we both know what to expect of each other. 

At your first session we will discuss further how we might work together. I will not ask you to commit to a fixed number of sessions and how many you choose to attend is entirely up to you. But making sure that you feel comfortable with me as your counsellor is really important. You might not be sure straight away but after two or three sessions, you will probably sense whether my approach is right for you.
