About Me

In addition to private practice I have worked in the local community as a wellbeing worker and as a consortium supervisor. My role essentially assisted individuals to stay well and maintain independence. Every day was different but each day I aimed to support individuals to lead healthier lives and build their personal resilience to cope with live's challenges. I have met some truly inspiring people and feel humbled to have been a part of their life for a short time, I take great delight in supporting individuals to value themselves and recognise that they have capacity to change, I trust that a person is their own expert they just need a little encouragement to believe in themselves.

I also work as an online bereavement counsellor for Sue Ryder.

I  work as an affiliate counsellor for a number of Employment Assistance Programmes (EAP's). For those seeking EAP counselling I am happy to take referrals directly from employers for short term counselling. I offer either Face to Face, Online or Telephone apointments. I am also interested in building business relationships with EAP providers taking on employee referrals living in the Lancashire area.
