About me and my therapy practice

I am an Accredited Member of BACP  and an experienced  NHS counsellor, I am able to offer confidential and supportive, counselling to private clients from my comfortable Counselling rooms in Hale, near Altrincham and also in Prestwich in North Manchester.

Many of my clients see me for help with depression and anxiety, bereavement and loss issues, relationship problems or work place stress. As a professional counsellor, I am trained to offer you a safe, supportive and confidential space where I can help you deal with the issues you wish to work on.

With over sixteen years' of continuous post qualifying counselling experience, I have developed a style of counselling which, I am told, offers a high level of warmth and support. My role is not to judge you, but to work closely with you whether that involves relaxation techniques to help with anxiety or to employ more creative methods to tackle specific problems. My counselling is easily tailored to your individual needs and goals.

As a therapist, I wish to help all clients learn to cope more effectively with life’s dramas, stresses and strains. It is my aim to help every client to find more fulfillment, contentment and peace in their lives. 

Please feel free to contact me and we can arrange a confidential phone call to see if I can help you with your counselling needs.
