I also seek and receive regular ongoing training and supervision to offer the best possible service to my clients.

I am a BACP Accredited counsellor and have UKRCP registration. BACP Accreditation is far more advanced than BACP registration. (The 'BACP' British Association Counsellors/Psychotherapists are the main governing body in the UK).

I teach counselling part time at South Cheshire College.

I have in-depth bereavement training, including sudden and traumatic death counselling.


My counselling work has been very varied working in bereavement and life changing illness at one agency as well as physical, emotional and sexual abuse. I work heavily with low self esteem and peoples anger.

I also work with alcoholism and various addictions.

I have an up to date (Nov 2014) unmarked enhanced criminal records bureau check. DBS and Safeguarding certificates.

I have a wealth of experience of working with children and adults of all ages. I have worked in two primary schools and three secondary schools. I currently work freelance one afternoon a week in a secondary school.

Approximately twenty five percent of my clients have been children and young people. My work is split fairly equally between working with males and females.

I have worked with the bereaved relatives from the high profile Independent Case Review, concerning deaths at Stafford Hospital. I also work freelance for a large city hospital and for large organisations such as ITV and government bodies such as DWP and the Prison Service as a staff counsellor.

In my private practice in Crewe individuals and couples come to see me for a whole host of reasons. I offer both short and long term counselling depending on my clients needs. I also have experience and work with clients who have learning disabilities for example Autism. Member organisations
