About me and my therapy practice

I am a BACP Registered Counsellor based in Warrington who specialises in working with women who are perhaps struggling with confidence, anxiety, lost identity and the emotional and physical aspects of menopause. I use a blended approach where I will give you the space to talk and share your experience, alongside working together to equip you with the tools and strategies to help you manage day-to-day. Using Psychodynamic therapy, coupled with CBT, we will work to understand how the past may be influencing your present situation and take on those negative thoughts that intrude on our daily life.

That might mean taking care of old beliefs that stem from childhood and looking at them with your fresh adult eyes; relabelling automatic beliefs you may be holding onto; and, ultimately unlocking the past to put some meaning and understanding into how it is affecting your present and ultimately your future.

Remember, this is your time and investment in yourself, so choosing the right therapist is vital. I offer a free 30 minute consultation, which will give you the opportunity to learn more about how I work and what to expect from counselling with me, and hopefully put you at ease a little as you embark on your counselling journey.

Practice description

Do any of the following apply to you?

  • I feel anxious and overwhelmed by life.
  • I feel constantly worn out from excessive worry; I can’t seem to turn my thoughts off!
  • I am worrying from the moment I wake up to the moment I go to bed.
  • …and by the time I go to bed, already exhausted from worry, I still can’t sleep!
  • I am always telling myself that I am not good enough, and I feel that this is holding me back.
  • I feel like I’ve lost a part of who I am.

If the above sounds familiar, then you are in the right place.

Often we just simply struggle on, we try to ignore how we feel thinking that there’s always someone else that’s in a worse place than us, right? Wrong. Your experience matters to you and what you’re feeling is real, overwhelming and exhausting. Counselling offers you the space and time to invest in yourself, to explore and unravel the way we think and feel and give you the tools to help you live a more fulfilling and content life.

My first session

Ultimately, counselling is an investment in yourself, and it is one of the most and important investments you can make.

I offer a no-obligation 30 minute consultation, which is at no charge to you.  This time will give you the opportunity to share your story with me, learn more about the way I work, and will help you work out if my style of counselling is right for you.

During the COVID-19 restrictions, I am working via Zoom with clients, and incorporating  Walk & Talk sessions for those of you who are a little Zoom-fatigued right now.  I am hopeful that in the next month that I will be able to return to face to face sessions from my comfortable therapy room in Warrington.
