About me and my therapy practice

Sometimes in life we find ourselves struggling with our inner thoughts and feelings and we behave in ways we find difficult to understand.  It could be that we have experienced a life changing event, or it could just be that something inside doesn't feel right and we can't explain why.  Asking for help can be very daunting, but an incredibly valuable first step to change. 

I offer a safe, confidential, non-judgmental space in which to explore those feelings and thoughts, what they may mean to you, and help you to understand how to release the inner turmoil and move forward with your life.

I believe counselling is about the individual and the expert on you is you.  My role as a professional is to listen, and facilitate self awareness, this enables growth and long term coping mechanisms for the future.  My approach depends on the individual client, the issues they face and what they want from the process.  I am trained as an Integrative Counsellor, this includes Person-Centred, Psychodynamic and Cognitive Behaviour Therapy.  I am a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy and adhere to their ethical code of conduct.  This means that my clients can be assured they are my main priority and I am focussed on their welfare at all times.

My practice is based in Chester, a short walk from the city centre, with hour restricted free parking outside or longer term paid parking within easy reach.  Every session is 50 minutes and costs £40, however I do offer concessions.  This can all be discussed at an initial assessment appointment where we meet and discuss what you need from counselling, and decide if we can work together.
