Welcome to my website. It can take courage to seek help such as counselling, and then how do you choose who you want to work with?
My advice....follow your instinct! I offer a warm, comfortable and nonjudgmental environment within which to support you.
If, you feel I might be the right counsellor for you, please do not hesitate to get in touch.

If you live near Garstang, Preston, Lancaster, Lytham, Kirkham, Fleetwood or Blackpool I am easy to find and well located to help you.


At times we can all feel we are struggling to cope, and counselling can often help us to see the wood for the trees.
There is something priceless in achieving peace and calm in our mind, and contentment in our own skin, and counselling can often help with this.

As a counsellor I am able to help clients with:

  • Stress, Anxiety, Depression
  • Relationships, Family, Divorce ( not couples counselling)
  • Trauma
  • Bereavement, Redundancy, Retirement and other areas of loss such as ill health
  • Confidence and Self Esteem
  • Feelings of Distress, Lonliness, Lack of Control
  • Managing Change - work changes, relocating, life changes eg becoming a parent, empty nest
  • Transgender Counselling - supporting at any stage of pre, post or current transition
  • Transgender - supporting friends and relatives of those who trans-identify
  • Transgender - supporting any issue not necessarily related to trans-identification

    I positively welcome LGBT clients.

    I became a counsellor as I beleive in, and have experienced, the benefits of counselling. Now with my experience as a client and my experience as a counsellor I can help you too.


    I practice from home in Great Eccleston, near Garstang. It is a quiet, private location, on a main bus route, with parking available. My practice is accessible for those living in Garstang, Blackpool, Fleetwood, Kirkham, Lytham and surrounding areas.

    I am happy to conduct counselling using Skype, as often this can help with work or childcare commitments.
    The practice is on the first floor so physical accessibility may not be possible for some - my sincere apologies, however, if mobility is difficult, Skype can often prove to be a way to overcome this.


    "Thankyou so much for listening when that is what I needed"-A

    "You have helped me through the most difficult and saddest time of my whole life.... " -M

    "I feel I can see the light at the end of the tunnel finally........I have learnt a great deal from you, I hope I can keep it up."-E

    "Thankyou for literally changing my life. Thankyou doesn't seem enough" -M


    My fees are 45 per session. Sessions can be booked weekly, bi weekly or monthly
    The initial appointment is free of charge....a taster session, to see if you feel I am the right counsellor for you.

    I look forward to hearing from you. Contact me. Let me help.
