I am currently offering on line counselling sessions for those who are struggling with anxiety relating to our current situation. There are many isolated people at present feeling lonely and afraid. I am available Monday to Friday (excluding Tuesdays).  Mid morning through to early evening and Saturday monrings As I work in a clinical environment I am able to offer one to one face to face counselling sessions following strict government guidelines.  Please contact me to find out more about how this works.

About me and my therapy practice

Having worked as a counsellor for 13 years in a Hospice and educational environment as well as private one to one sessions, I am now, as a new venture, working as the counsellor for an occupational health clinic and welcome clients from all walks of life. I work in a modern, professional, safe and friendly environment with easy access for all.  I am a Person Centred Counsellor using CBT techniques to complement sessions where appropriate.

I look forward to welcoming you. 

Practice description

I am currently working both on on line and face to face (see above) I work in a beautiful building which has undergone extensive renovations and includes physiotherapy, holistic treatments and a chiropractor. We have a large car park and we are situated in a convenient location in Chester.  ProHealth is an excellent place to work and I have a comfortable, warm and spacious room. 

My first session

During our first session I offer a reduced rate whilst ascertaining your reason/s for coming to me. This session is approx 40 minutes. Follow up sessions are of one hour’s duration.  I like to think of the first session as a comfortable chat where I will explain my role and the contract /expectations on both sides. If, at the end of the session you wish to commence therapy we will discuss a convenient time for you.
