About me and my therapy practice
I am a qualified Integrative counsellor and psychotherapist located near the town centre of Lancaster. Please see my website https://northernlancscounselling.co.uk . I have 30 years experience in the helping professions and work with a wide range of needs including addiction, trauma, depression and anxiety.
I provide a safe, non- judgemental and confidential environment where people can experience being heard, understood, valued and validated. I offer an opportunity to share and explore your thoughts, feelings and experiences; with the respect, freedom and support which is rare to obtain elsewhere in life.
I offer an open and transparent way of working adapted to your individual needs. My approach is explained and co-created with you as the work develops: helping to build the trust necessary for a healthy working relationship.
My practice is underpinned by current scientific research from the fields of therapy, neuro-science and human development
