What I Offer

As a fully qualified Integrative counsellor, I work with various different approaches which can help you through your journey. 

I continue to work with clients from various backgrounds with a plethera of issues, which include: 


Bereavement                                  Stress                                                                    Anger management     

Anxiety                                            Bullying                                                                Mindfulness                            

Depression                                     Returning to work after a long absence

Low self esteem                             Different types of abuse

Low self confidence                      Addiction                                                                 


My commitment to you involves offering you an environment which is safe, warm, empathic, non-judgemental and confidential, in order to offer an opportunity to try and make sense of your past experiences, as well as current dilemmas; discovering how they affect your life today and exploring whether or not they are relevant to your future.

I offer one to one counselling at my Liverpool city centre base, as well as telephone and email counselling.   In an ideal world counselling is done face to face, as it enables the client and counsellor to understand each other as things such as body language and reactions can be taken into account.  However, we do not live in an ideal world and sometimes it is simply not possible to attend counselling in this way.  This is why I offer telephone or email counselling in a safe and confidential environment.

I am a member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP) which means that I work within their ethical framework, ensuring that I work within your best interests at all times. I also attend regular training days to ensure that I am up to date with my skills and knowledge.


As well as working with this service, I have worked as a counsellor for Kingsway College, Widnes counselling students from the age of 16 and above as well as Age Uk, Wirral, as a bereavement counsellor.
