There comes a point for many people when distress, anxiety and confusion take hold and psychological help is needed. Sometimes the reasons for this seem all too apparent and sometimes they are quite baffling. It can be enormously helpful to talk things through with a professional person who is unconnected with your family and friends. I am warm, empathetic and genuine. I'm a qualified therapeutic counsellor with over 13 years’ experience working with both adults and young people. I am a registered member of the BACP, working in accordance with its Ethical Framework. I am based in Hindley, near Wigan.

Life can be a struggle sometimes or it may have always been this way for you. You may feel that you live life just going through the motions, but inside you’re screaming. Maybe you feel empty or constantly angry. Perhaps you’ve lost yourself and don’t know how to find ‘you’ again. It could be that everything is an effort and you lack motivation, or you’ve lost your purpose in life. You may be stuck with negative thoughts about yourself or others; feeling lonely, angry, shame, guilty, grief, anxiety or sadness.

Reaching out can be difficult. Maybe you feel stuck, anxious, unsettled, lost your way, or uncomfortable with whom you have become. The difficulties within our lives can change who we are or how we see the world. It can lead to thoughts or behaviours that take us away from who we are, resulting in a feeling of something not being right, struggling to cope or to make sense of things. When entering therapy, our life experiences enter too, and healing occurs within the processing. We will work together to build trust and explore your emotions and thoughts within a non-judgemental and safe environment, working at your own pace.
