As a Registered, Accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy, I am fully committed to providing a professional and ethical service for my clients.

My past experience includes working in a GP’s practice, as well as for two local charities. I spent four years working at the Counselling and Family Centre Altrincham. In addition to counselling adults, couples and young people I was actively involved in several projects designed to extend our service; one being an outreach service to adults in the community, in which I worked with a number of clients in their own homes.  I was also a member of the training team delivering in house courses to student counsellors.

I was a member of the counselling team at Beacon Counselling in Bramhall for three years, working in a GP setting with adults in the Stockport area.

Below are listed some of the issues which I work with on a regular basis:

  • Anger Management
  • Anxiety
  • Bereavement
  • Depression
  • Family Problems
  • Fertility Issues
  • Low Self-Esteem
  • Menopause

  • *Personal Development/Therapy is offered to Counsellors and Counselling students who wish/need to undertake therapy as part of their course.
