Background & Qualifications

I also have a certificate in Counselling Supervision and provide supervision for both trainee counsellors and psychiatrists. I keep up with professional training every year and particularly concentrate on my specialist areas. I am currently undergoing intensive training in the use of EMDR, for the treatment of trauma. After several years in a renowned treatment facility, I now have my own practice in central Liverpool, with over a decade of experience.

Approach to Therapy & How I Work

My approach is to tailor-make a therapeutic approach to suit my client which is person centered. I believe that, although clients present with many different problems and concerns, issues and hurts, there is usually a prevailing cause. Helping to discover and overcome that is where my passion and skills are best utilised. I walk alongside every client to discover triggers and responses that affect personal lives and self worth. This service is provided in confidence and is entirely ethically sound adhering to guidelines of the BACP's ethical framework. I deliver support to individuals and groups also including workshops, corporate and HR teams. I prefer to work in person but Skype sessions can be arranged upon request and where deemed suitable.
