I am a qualified and experienced counsellor/psychotherapist based in New Mills, High Peak. I offer weekday appointments. If you are finding some aspects of life to be difficult, I can work with you to make life more enjoyable. Sometimes it is not the obvious content of a therapy session which brings about change or growth, but the relational process of having a safe supportive counselling relationship which can help you to gain freedom from your fears and anxieties. The relationship I build with my clients empowers positive change. I also provide training to organisations and clinical supervision to other counsellors and trainees.

Difficult feelings may relate to depression, panic, anxiety, relationships, work stress, chronic or life-threatening illness and more. I aim to help by providing a safe, confidential & non-judgemental space. Focusing on what you bring to each session - the emphasis of our relationship is based on trust & respect. I have current experience of working in an NHS setting, cancer support and high schools. Together, we can explore whatever it is that brings you to counselling, and hopefully help you to make sense of things; perhaps coming to a different, more helpful understanding of yourself and your life circumstances.

Life can be very challenging & overwhelming and we may need extra support. It takes enormous courage to reach out & ask for help. Asking for help is a daunting experience in itself. You've taken the first step to seek guidance and support. Are you struggling with some of life's difficulties, and/or been diagnosed with health problems. I have vast experience with the military. If your feeling overwhelmed and would like to be heard, and to explore your thoughts and feelings and don't want to be judged, then you have come to the right place. I offer what I hope is affordable counselling.

Thank you for looking at my profile. Perhaps you are struggling with difficult thoughts and feelings. It may be that something doesn't feel right or perhaps feels confusing, even distressing. You may feel anxious or feel that your relationships with people are challenging. Talking and thinking together with a trained counsellor is the first step to start to make sense of this. I believe that everyone has the capacity to create change, and while counselling cannot remove your experiences, it can empower you to understand them better.

I’ve been through my own struggles with alcohol, and entered residential rehab in 2007 as a single mum of 3 young children. It was an immense challenge but I overcame many demons with the help of empathetic professionals. I decided to retrain from teacher to counsellor so that I could support others in addressing unhelpful thoughts and behaviours and live meaningful, contented lives. After 16 years in recovery, I understand that every journey is different but we all strive for the same thing: inner contentment and sustainable change.

Does life sometimes feel like a jigsaw puzzle with pieces not slotting together? I am a great believer that we need to invest in ourselves. When life becomes difficult and those pieces are just not fitting, counselling gives you the opportunity to focus on yourself, make you the priority in an otherwise busy life. I have been through such times and it encouraged me to train as a counsellor to help clients with general mental health issues and other life difficulties, such as grief, addiction, sexuality, domestic abuse and anger issues.

Is everyone in the Psychology Today Therapy Directory a licensed therapist?

Counsellors and Psychotherapists listed in the directory are members of the main professional associations, mainly the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP). Most Psychologists in the directory are accredited members of the British Psychological Society (BPS) and/or are registered in the Health and Care Professions Council (HPCP).

Providers whose professional membership or primary credential has been verified by Psychology Today are signified by a “Verified” symbol. Given that professional memberships are not a statutory requirement for psychotherapists and counsellors in the UK, certain qualified professionals or organisations may choose not to maintain such memberships despite possessing the necessary qualifications. They may be selectively included without the “Verified” seal.

What’s the difference between a psychologist, a therapist, and a counsellor?

Counsellors, psychotherapists and psychologists can all provide counselling or talking therapy and have credentials and experience that enable them to do so in the UK. Psychologists have earned a degree in psychology and many are members of the British Psychological Society (BPS) and have completed a postgraduate qualification in a specialism. Counsellors and Psychotherapists are not required to have a psychology degree, but to belong to a professional organisation such as the BACP or UKCP, they are required to have completed a training course as well as clinical and supervision hours.

What type of therapy is right for me?

The type of therapy best suited to a particular individual depends on several factors, including their primary reason for seeking therapy, their preferred timeline (some therapy types last for a set number of sessions, while others are open-ended), and their personality and preferences—some may prefer a more structured approach. For many individuals, multiple types of therapy could provide a good fit.

How much does therapy cost?

The cost of therapy depends on a number of variables, including location and the therapist’s experience and training. On average, a therapy session in the UK could be between £30 - £60 when seeing a counsellor and £60 - £150 and up when seeing a clinical psychologist. If you have private insurance, your plan may cover some if not all of your sessions. You should contact your insurance provider to determine if they provide coverage for therapy sessions and to determine what, if any, requirements they might have in order for your sessions to be covered, such as a referral from your GP or medical specialist.

What are more affordable or low cost therapy solutions?

Many therapists offer sliding scale payments, usually on a limited number of slots, which consists in an agreement between the therapist and a client to pay a reduced rate. Therapists who provide such arrangements often consider the client's income or ability to pay, but the extent of the discount is ultimately at the therapist's discretion. Furthermore, while group therapy may have different goals and benefits compared to individual therapy, it can be a more affordable solution to address certain types of issues.

If you are struggling to access therapy due to budget constraints, you could also consider public funded mental health services. The NHS Talking therapies programme offers free of charge counselling for common mental health problems like anxiety and depression. The service is available to anyone registered with a GP, though you do not necessarily need to be referred by your GP and can refer yourself directly to a Talking therapies service. The service will provide different solutions, including group and individual therapy, for a limited number of sessions which are generally up to six.

Is online therapy cheaper than in-person therapy?

Many therapists charge the same amount for online therapy as they do for in-person therapy—though clients may still find this cost-effective if it cuts down on their transportation costs. Health insurance plans often offer equivalent coverage for online and in-person therapy; indeed, in many places, they are legally required to do so. Text-based or on-demand therapy apps may be cheaper than traditional one-on-one psychotherapy; however, the practice may be less effective and is not likely to be covered by insurance.

Is online therapy a good option?

Therapy conducted online can be just as effective as in-person therapy, as long as there is a strong alliance between the client and the therapist. To find a therapist who provides telehealth services to clients in your area, click “Online Therapy” on the directory homepage and search by your city or town or your postcode.

Are therapy sessions confidential?

Therapists who are part of a professional organisation such as the BACP, the UKCP, or BPS are bound by an ethical framework that requires them to uphold a confidentiality agreement. Confidentiality is a crucial part of the therapeutic relationship and only under specific circumstances, such as when there has been participation in a criminal act or act of terror, or if there is potential or known harm to the client or others, will a therapist be obligated to break the agreement. These exceptions to the confidentiality agreement are usually discussed during the initial consultation.
