    How I can help you

    In all areas of my work, I aim to create an environment and a therapeutic relationship within which you feel safe, and can explore whatever issues you bring. I will treat you with respect, will try to understand you and your experiences, will be genuine in our relationship and will not be judgmental.

    What to expect

    I will provide you with an opportunity to talk confidentially about how you feel, to become more self-aware, and to work towards a more satisfying and authentic life. I make every effort to provide a supportive relationship within which you will feel safe enough to explore the problems you are facing. I do this in ways which respect your values, abilities and culture.

    Our work will be about self-discovery, and about finding solutions which are right for you, rather than receiving advice or being told what to do.

    About me

    I have worked as a qualified counsellor for over 16 years. I am an accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and am on its Register of Counsellors and Psychotherapists. I have a BSc in Applied Psychology, a Postgraduate Diploma in Counselling, a Diploma in Casework Supervision and a BA in English Literature.

    I am a Person-centred counsellor. I also use Solution-focused Brief Therapy, Inner Child work, Symbolic Modelling (Clean Language) and Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT).

    I am also a qualified supervisor and life coach.

    I am fully insured, have regular supervision to ensure that I meet professional standards and work according to the BACP's Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions (2016).

    My experience includes: staff counsellor with the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister; affiliate counsellor with several UK Employee Assistance Providers (EAPs), providing counselling to the private sector and Government departments; private practice since 2001; counsellor in a GP surgery; counselling work with The Churches’ Ministerial Counselling Service; supervisor at the Speke-Garston Domestic Violence Project; associate counsellor with the Talking Matters Counselling Service (Salford); and volunteer counsellor with the Young Persons Advisory Service (YPAS) in Liverpool.
