About me and my therapy practice

Welcome to Together in Counselling.  I offer a warm, welcoming, Private Counselling Service to Individuals and Couples, and I am also a Counselling Supervisor and an EMDR Practitioner.  In comfortable surroundings, you will feel at ease talking through anything that concerns you, in complete confidence, without any fear of being judged. I will listen to you, respect and value you whilst completely hearing and understanding what you say and what you would like to get out of counselling.  We will work together at your own pace to help you find answers, clarity and understanding.  

I am a Registered and Accredited Counsellor, with 12 years' experience. I am also a qualified in Couples'/Relationship Counselling, EMDR Therapy and Clinical Supervision. My counselling style is Integrative, which means that your sessions will be designed to suit you as an individual or couple.  Counselling sessions last for 50 minutes and EMDR sessions last for 60 minutes.  Supervision sessions are 90 minutes.

I work with Clients of all ages 18+, with a wide variety of issues. Individuals, Couples and Supervisees are most welcome to contact me to arrange a private appointment directly.

For Couples, I offer an independent, relaxed, safe, non-judgemental space, where you can both feel at ease and free to equally discuss what concerns each of you have about your relationship respectfully.  We will explore together how you can each find ways to deeply understand the other, improve communication and regain or improve your relationship.  

I also take referrals from Employers, GPs, various EAPs and Insurers.  I am recognised by BUPA, AXA, AVIVA, VITALITY HEALTH.  I am an Associate Counsellor with Lancashire Constabulary and the Police Firearms Officers Association (PFOA).

Practice description

My practice is based within a beautiful listed building near the centre of Rawtenstall in Rossendale, with free on site parking.  With old oak beams and oozing character and charm, my counselling room is warm, friendly, comfortable inviting and relaxing, overlooking a country park.  You will feel at ease in no time.  

I have 12 years' experience in Counselling.  I offer Counselling to Individuals, Couples or other Relationship (eg family members).  I also offer EMDR Therapy.

I am also a qualified and experienced Supervisor for Counsellors or Therapists.  I provide a warm, caring, supportive and encouraging supervision service, where we work closely together to ensure that you flourish and your clients are getting the best possible experience of your expert counselling.  Your safe practice and continuous development are very important to me.

If you happen to arrive with time to spare, then there is a Retail Outlet very close by, with a Coffee bar, Restaurant and shops, or alternatively we are based within a country park where you can enjoy a walk along the river.

My first session includes introductions and discussing, at your own pace, what has been happening for you and understanding what you would like to achieve through counselling.  We create a plan together of how we might best approach your counselling, as I am an integrative counsellor, which means I am able to offer individual approaches for each client.

About me and my therapy practice

I am a Person-Centred, Integrative Counsellor and Supervisor, based near the centre of Rawtenstall, Rossendale, BB4. I will provide you with a professional, warm, friendly, caring and supportive Supervision Service.  

I have my own Private Counselling Practice and work with Adults, Children, Young People, Couples & Relationships. I hold a Diploma in Counselling, Certificate in Supervision (MIP), Certificate in Couples/Relationship Counselling and I am also a qualified lecturer, trainer, assessor and verifier and have an NVQ 4 in Management. 

I will encourage and support you - your aspirations really matter to me.  I consider our Supervision Sessions to be a joint opportunity to help you to feel confident in all areas of your work with clients, in order to ensure that you and your clients get the best possible safe, ethical and rewarding experience from your professional counselling sessions.  We will explore together any issues that your counselling work has raised for you and discuss any alternative strategies that you might like to explore with your clients in counselling.

I will take an active interest in your ongoing development and offer all the support that I can to encourage your continued professional development and safe counselling service.

Practice description

My practice is based within a beautiful old listed building, overlooking a country park, with on site parking.  My room is comfortable, warm and relaxing, with old oak beams and picture windows.

My first session

Our first session together is a free half hour which will help us to get to know each other, over a coffee.  We will identify what you would most like to get out of our supervision together, explore your needs and any concerns and I will explain about my own counselling and supervision practice and style/modality.  Once we both feel that we are a good match for your supervision, then we can complete the necessary paperwork together and arrange your first supervision appointment.
