I am an experienced counsellor with over ten years’ experience. I am registered with the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy and abide by their code and ethical guidelines. I approach therapy from a humanistic perspective. The Humanistic approach focuses on personal growth thereby enabling a person to think about their feelings and take responsibility for their thoughts and actions. I offer face to face, telephone, video and e-mail counselling and I am available for sessions during the day, evenings and on weekends. I offer a safe, confidential and non-judgemental space to discuss your difficulties and challenges. Counselling enables you to ventilate your feelings and empowers you to regain control of your life. I will emphasize that counselling is a subjective experience and it is important that you feel comfortable with your counsellor.

I have over seventeen years’ experience as a counsellor, including working in private practice, as a staff counsellor with the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister and other Government departments, with several UK Employee Assistance Providers, in a GP surgery, with the Young Person’s Advisory Service (YPAS) in Liverpool and as an online counsellor. I also supervise other counsellors and have designed and run several therapy-related workshops.

I offer a warm, therapeutic relationship and a confidential, supportive, respectful and non-judgemental environment in which you can feel safe enough to express your feelings, explore your problems, develop self-awareness and work towards a more satisfying, fulfilling and authentic life.

Each counselling session lasts approximately 50 minutes; the number and frequency of sessions is entirely up to you.

SPECIALIST IN – Communication problems – Relationship problems – Trauma – Suicidal thoughts – Self-harm – Domestic abuse – Sexual abuse – Anger – Anxiety – Panic attacks – Guilt – Grief – Loss – Depression – Stress – Obsessive thoughts-compulsive behaviours – Self-esteem and confidence – Existential issues

Through a positive and non-judgmental manner, my aim is to support you to understand your thoughts and emotions, and to help you rediscover or develop the ways or tools you need to be able to deal with the difficulties or challenges you face.

I believe that it is important to find the right therapist for you as this can make a substantial difference to the outcome of therapy. It can feel like a big challenge to take the first step and contact a therapist, but an initial session will provide you with an opportunity to meet me, explore your needs and expectations, and have a conversation about what you could expect from the counselling process.

Then, if you feel it may be of benefit to you, we can discuss further weekly sessions. This may mean arranging a fixed number of sessions or agreeing to work together in a more open-ended way.

I am a qualified Humanistic Person-Centred Counsellor and Psychotherapist and I work under the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy's (BACP) ethical framework.
