About You

Sometimes life isn't the joy it should be and we wonder if talking to a professional will help. 


If you are feeling anxious, depressed, have experienced past trauma or are worried about something or want to talk things through, counselling could be the answer. 




 Issues I have worked with in the past include:



Suicidal ideation


Self-esteem/confidence issues

Troubling thoughts

Stress (work and exam)



Health issues

Relationship problems


Dermatillomania (skin picking)

Childhood trauma/abuse




Counselling/ Psychotherapy

Before I started my training to be a counsellor, I had no idea that there were different modalities of counselling and so it's worth doing a bit of research to make sure you get what you want. Whatever the theory, counselling is an opportunity for you to work through what is troubling you with a neutral professional.


I believe that the relationship between counsellor and client is crucial, so I offer a free 30 mins online session for us to meet and see if we wish to work together.

About Me

 I am an experienced person-centred pluralistic counsellor, which means I use a variety of methods and we can work together to decide the best approach. I have additional training in EMDR (Eye movement desensitization reprocessing), mindfulness, EFT (Tapping); and other creative methods. I am also a lecturer in Counselling at the University of Chester. 


I hope we will be able to build a safe enough space together in which we can explore issues.


I have experience working with  adults, teenagers and primary age children and have a DBS.


I have also taught mindfulness and anger management to groups. 



Maybe you would just like to meet with me for a couple of hours to kickstart your career, for instance? If so please visit my 'Tree of Life' page. 


 How it works


After you contact me, we would arrange an initial free meeting to see if we can  work together. We would also discuss number of

 sessions and if you have particular goals. 


 My aim is to work with you with compassion and  support to help you move forward positively to where you want to be. This can involve going back to childhood, looking at core beliefs, patterns of  behaviour, or looking at the relationship we have with others  and with ourselves. We can't change other people but  we can change our thoughts, actions and feelings.



If you contact me and you do not get a reply, please check your spam mail box. I will always reply, even if I cannot help.
