I am a fully qualified CBT Therapist and BACP registered counsellor with over 11 years of experience with many different kinds of issues working with both male and female clients. I offer a warm, friendly and safe environment where you will not be judged but accepted. This will be your time where you are listened to and can talk about whatever issues you are facing.

I became a counsellor after volunteering for Barnados for a number of years. I worked on a number of projects within Barnados including inclusion projects for young people with learning disabilities, family liaison, independent visitor for looked after children and being an advocate.
After working in a women's centre for 12 years, the majority of my clients experienced low self esteem and confidence, anxiety and depression. I have worked with a wide range of people and problems including anxiety disorders, bipolar disorder/ manic depression, obsessive thoughts and behaviours, bereavement and complicated grief, relationships, sexual and psychological abuse, relationships and family issues, trauma and dissociation.
I also work in two senior schools working with male and female students and adapt my approach to fit with the specific needs of young people. I hold an Enhanced Certificate with the Disclosure and Barring Service.
My private practice work takes place in Allerton, South Liverpool.
