How can I help?
How person-centred counselling can help you?

As the name suggests, person-centred counselling is all about you, your needs and desires. My aim is to provide a secure, non-judgemental space for you to explore and express - without fear - your feelings and thoughts as you make your way towards healing.

Person-centred counselling offers no gimmicks, no magical cures; just the core nurturing conditions of empathy, authenticity and acceptance:
- Empathy, where you feel heard and understood;
- Authenticity, where I am not playing at being “the expert”, but am real and genuine;
- Acceptance, where you are never judged, diagnosed or pigeon-holed.

My practice

I offer counselling to individuals and couples, working in-person, online and over the telephone.

In-person sessions are held at my home address, in the “garden room”, a space separate from the main house. It is within easy reach of Nantwich, Market Drayton and Newcastle/Stoke; however, it is not served by public transport. Parking is available. On contact, full details will be shared with you.

My practice is governed by the ethical rules of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), which are there to protect both you and me. You can find them here.

I currently work with the Dougie Mac Hospice in Stoke-on-Trent and Cameron's Companions, a national charity counselling men living with depression. In addition, I have worked with HealthBox CIC, a Cheshire-based counselling service in conjunction with the NHS, and a charity helping refugees in Newcastle-under-Lyme.

I have helped clients tackle a range of issues including: ADHD, anxiety, addiction, bereavement, depression, gender dysphoria, low self-esteem, panic attacks, relationship problems and self-harming.
