About me and my therapy practice
I am a fully qualified counsellor who is committed to working with you to achieve the outcomes you are seeking.
Life can move at a fast pace and we may not fully acknowledge the difficulties and changes we have faced in the past or are trying to deal with now. Even if we have support from family or friends it seems they may want to give us advice to solve what they see as our problems, without acknowledging our experiences and feelings. It may also be difficult for us to tell those we care about what we are struggling with or how difficult our feelings really are as we may fear criticism or causing upset and concern.
Counselling offers a confidential, non-judgemental, professional relationship where you can explore your feelings and what is concerning you.
With a post graduate diploma in counselling and psychotherapy and practice, my core training is in the person centred approach. In addition to this, I am also currently studying to obtain a diploma in cognitive behavioural therapeutic skills and theory (CBT-Level 5).
I have experience of working with clients across a wide variety of issues such as anxiety, depression, bereavement, unresolved childhood experiences, relationship breakdowns and difficulties, work related stress, loss of identity, self-image problems, low self-esteem, lack of motivation, coping with sudden life changes and the impact and aftermath of the Covid 19 pandemic restrictions.
In addition to being a counsellor I am also a qualified social worker and have worked in social care for over 30 years.
Thank you for taking the time to look at my profile. Should you decide to contact me to discuss how we could work together, I very much look forward to hearing from you.
I have a small private counselling practice offering face to face, online and telephone sessions.
Face to face sessions are offered at Heswall Hills Counselling Centre CH60 1XF. The centre has comfortable therapy rooms, some with level access. The centre has also parking facilities and is accessible by public transport.
My first session
At your first session we will initially discuss how we are going to work together. You will be sent a copy of the counselling contract before this session to facilitate these discussions and to enable you to get any clarification you may require.
Your first session also offers an opportunity for you to explore why you are seeking counselling and the outcomes you hope to achieve.
