Location: Bury

I am a Level 5 trained and fully insured Counsellor in the Bury area. I am a Accredited Registered Member of The National Counselling Society and a member of The British Association for Counsellors and Psychotherapists (MBACP). I run a private practice in Bury, Greater Manchester. I also carry out work from client’s homes where appropriate. I have regular supervisions to ensure my work is effective and recognise the importance of continuous professional development.
I work with clients experiencing varied issues some of these are stress, anxiety, abuse, depression, bereavement, trauma, flash backs, self harm, OCD, PTSD, Anger, Phobias, addiction mood swings suicidal thoughts, relationship issues, disabilities, agoraphobia, family issues, sexual abuse & historical sexual abuse.
I bring to my Counselling role a wealth of experience gained in health and social care. This includes over 20 years supporting individuals within the community and various care settings. These include a drug rehabilitation centre, brain injury unit, adults with learning disabilities, the elderly and with a homeless charity services.
I feel that asking for help can be the hardest decision to make, but in exploring counselling as an option, you’ve taken the first step in the process to real change and taking control of your life again. Sometimes an issue in your life can feel so overbearing that you don’t know where to begin. In providing you with my support, dedication and commitment, my aim is to help you to be able to work through solutions and have a greater understanding of what you are experiencing, enabling you to take control and becoming empowered to reach your goals, make lasting changes and move forward positively in order to lead a more fulfilled quality of life.
I offer face to face, individual counselling and provide you with a warm, safe, relaxed and therapeutic space where you can give yourself the opportunity to take time out, talk openly and explore your feelings, thoughts, emotions and concerns which are important to you, in depth, in a private and safe place.
I treats people with warmth, understanding and respect. I believe in people and enjoy empowering them to make the best decisions for themselves and get great pleasure in watching people grow and develop as individuals. I hope that my natural warm persona and training in person centred counselling would enable you to begin the process.
