It can also help you to explore your options and make decisions so that you’re able to make positive changes. It can help you to accept things you cannot change and find ways of coping with the stresses of day to day living.

Frequently Asked Questions

What kind of therapy do you offer?

There are many different models of therapy you may have heard of for example, psychodynamic, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and person centred. I work integratively which basically means I tailor my approach to you rather than confining the therapy to one particular way of working. I find this greater flexibility means that therapy is more effective.

What experience do you have?

I began my career as a counsellor working for a charity in Stockport supporting clients with a broad range of issues including anxiety, low self-esteem, depression, childhood abuse, mid-life and relationship / family issues. I work as a counsellor in private practice and as an affiliate counsellor for Employee Assistance Programmes as well as insurers such as AXA PPP, Health Assured and Care First. I have over 10 years experience of supporting clients as a careers counsellor face to face, via web chat, telephone and email. ‘Reviews for my services can be found on my Google Business Page Link.

What are your qualifications?

I hold a Postgraduate Diploma in Integrative Counselling from the University of Manchester, an ABC level 3 Certificate in Counselling Skills from Cheadle and Marple College and a Certificate in Couples Counselling from the Macclesfield Counselling and Training Centre.

Are you a member of a professional body?

I am a Registered and Accredited member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy. BACP Accreditation means I have means I have successfully demonstrated that my practice is of a high standard and that I have significant counselling experience. For further information regarding accreditation and what it means please click here.

I’d like to go ahead. What do I do next?

You can contact me confidentially by email, telephone, web form, Whatsapp or text. Once you have made contact, I will then be in touch to arrange a suitable time for a free initial 15 minute telephone chat which will help me to understand your needs further and help you to decide whether you would like to work with me.

Choosing the right counsellor for you is important so feel free to ask as many questions as you wish. There is no obligation but if you decide you’d like to go ahead, we will agree a mutually convenient time for our first session.

Where are you based?

I work from rooms in both Heaton Moor and Heaton Chapel, Stockport SK4. I also offer telephone and online counselling via webchat if either of my locations are inconvenient for you.

How do I pay?

I request payment at least 24 hours in advance via bank transfer. Cancellations made more than 48 hours in advance will not be charged. Cancellations made less than 48 hours in advance remain payable.
