I am a qualified, experienced and accredited counsellor and psychotherapist, with consulting rooms at Old Hall Street in central Liverpool and Ullet Road in south Liverpool. My expertise lies in the areas of: anxiety, depression, relationship difficulties, anger, stress, low self-esteem, compulsive lying and sexuality.
For the past 19 years I have worked as a counsellor on a wide range of issues with clients from all walks of life, including different nationalities, ethnicities, religions and sexual orientations.
I use evidence-based approaches. I primarily utilise Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) to provide clients with the tools to change the thoughts and behaviours that have lead to their problems. I also use Schema Therapy, which helps people change life-long self-defeating patterns, and Compassion Focused Therapy, which helps people overcome shame based difficulties.
Working collaboratively with clients I help them identify their strengths and capacity for resilience.
I am a registered and accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and a member of the British Psychological Society (BPS). I abide by their codes of ethics and am bound by their complaints procedures.
