About me and my therapy practice


Bolton based fully qualified to advanced level Integrative counsellor / psychotherapist providing therapy for all age groups and issues... other certificates include ASIST (suicide interruption) also an Accredited Counsellor via Tavistock, CCfD (Couple Counselling for Depression) IAPT provision... also StopSO Qualified to work reparatively with offenders and their family.  


First session generally includes a discussion of what’s going on for you, and what your goal might be, and what obstacles are intruding on that success.  

Some time will be invested in getting to know you and exploring your way of thinking and challenging fixed beliefs.  

Everything we do has a payoff of some description which is part and parcel if being a human being, but many of our default settings are simply inherited and potentially outdated, and no longer serve us anymore.  These are the things we can evaluate and uncover what you want moving forward, and how you might get there... 

Therapy is both a wonderful and equally a challenging experience. There is nothing to ‘tell you’ as the information is already within you.  You DO have all the answers, what you maybe need are the right Questions...
