About me and my therapy practice

I am a professional senior accredited counsellor with over 15 years experience working in the healthcare sector. I am also a clinical supervisor working with counsellors, students and specialist nurses.

My core values are compassion, ethical and professional practice and a real desire to help people reach their potential.

Many of the people who come to me for help struggle with personal worries and concerns that stop them from living happy & fulfilled lives. Anxiety and depression are common problems and can massively affect self confidence and self esteem, which in turn affects relationships, work and happiness.

“Talking therapy can change your life” …. It really can.

I am trained in several approaches -

➢ CBT - this approach looks at how your thoughts affect your feeling and how this then affects your behaviour. (This approach is recommended by NICE guidelines for depression).

➢ Person Centred - this therapy help you to get in touch with your feelings and can be powerful in helping with self development and understanding yourself; working through your issues.

➢ Hypnotherapy - helps with a wide range of issues - weight loss, giving up smoking, anxiety, stress, trauma, pain, fears & phobias e.g dentists, flying, exam nerves and public speaking. (fees for hypnotherapy are from £60).

Your first session will be an assessment and together we will agree a personally tailored plan, perhaps using a combination of interventions. Effective therapy usually takes several sessions and the willingness for you to engage .

Therapy is confidential unless there is a safeguarding concern.

About me and my therapy practice

“I have a real commitment and desire to promote and develop the Counselling profession”.

I am a manager of a BACP accredited service and I have worked in the healthcare sector for over 15 years. I also have a private practice . I work with adult clients and have extensive experience with health related issues and complex bereavement.

I qualified as a Counselling Supervisor at Chester University (2014) and fully meet all the BACP competencies and skills. I currently supervise both experienced counsellors and student counsellors (approved supervisor with Salford University) and so I am used to working with different levels of competencies.

Your experience with me will be ethical, supportive and educational putting the client at the heart of our work along with your well being and professional practice. I am naturally an encourager and aim to develop you to be the very best you can be.

I am able to help you with BACP accreditation application if needed.

I believe that the relationship with your supervisor is very important and forms the basis of good ethical practice and support. I am happy to arrange a free ½ meeting to discuss your supervision needs and to find out if ‘we are a good fit’.

I can offer evening, daytime or weekend sessions.

Fees £60 for 1 ½ hr session
