About me and my therapy practice

I have been counselling since qualifying in 2003 and have helped many women, men, couples and young people with issues such as depression, anxiety, post traumatic stress, bereavement relationship problems and many others. I like to engage with clients in a relational way and bring all my past experience into creating an individual approach. I prefer to work with clients in a solution focussed approach combined with being basically person centred as a counsellor. In this process we can work towards a good outcome for clients.

I can also work with anger management having undertaken training in this area. I can use creative ways of working having experience as an art teacher for many years. I prefer working face to face with clients so that we can build rapport, rather than remote contact.

Practice description

I provide a quiet and peaceful area within my home in Darwen where clients can feel relaxed and engage with me and talk about issues in a safe environment.

I provide plenty of off road parking on my drive way.
