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.  Mornings through to early evening.

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 on line, however, 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.
