Life can sometimes leave us feeling confused, scared or just fed up and quite often not being able to pinpoint the exact reason why. Being allowed the time and space to share what is on your mind can allow you to unscramble those thoughts and make some sense of your feelings.

I run my own practice located in Stalybridge and work from a private therapy room. The room is located in a quiet, private space which allows the opportunity for you to talk in a safe, confidential and non-judgmental space without interruption from the outside world.

I offer therapy at affordable rates, starting with a free 20-minute telephone consultation that will provide you with the opportunity to tell me a little more about yourself and what you wish to work on in therapy and will also help you decide if I am the right counsellor for you. It will allow me to assess what type of therapy may work best for you to achieve the desired outcome. I believe everyone should have the option of seeking counselling, regardless of their financial situation and therefore offer reduced rates for people on lower incomes.

Please visit my website, email, call or text me for further information.
