About

Counselling is available via the internet (WhatsApp, Messenger) and protocols are in place for face to face. My experience is based on practice, research, and personal experience. I assist individuals to make sense of their thinking processes, by assisting them to prevent past experiences negatively impacting on their 'here and now thinking'. Areas include: anger, relationship issues/breakdowns, trauma, self and sexual identity, work and education stress, depression, fear of mortality, combat related PTSD (also impact on families), transitional issues. I offer a safe environment to discuss your issues. Pro bono 15 min WhatsApp chat
My practices are based on the person-centered discipline, in that the client is the 'expert' in their own lives, where they have been, where they are, and where they want to go. I offer a peaceful setting for counselling sessions also ECO Therapy with walks in the Staffs and Cheshire canals (once it is safe to do so). Client is expert in own life.
We all at times need assistance to cope, friends and family may be too close to share our feelings with. I offer a safe and confidential place to chat about your issues in confidence. You will receive empathy, unconditional positive regard and congruence, and a safe place to share only what you would like to share, at your pace and in your own direction.
