In-Person and Online Counselling in Marple Bridge, Stockport and surrounding areas.

Welcome

I've been exactly where you are right now. Browsing online to find a counsellor who will feel right for you can be confusing.

Perhaps you made this decision alone or somebody close to you suggested you speak to someone, either way you are taking the first powerful step and doing something for YOU.
It's positive and meaningful, you're being wise and courageous.

Let's be honest, you probably didn't anticipate ever needing counselling so it's OK and quite normal to feel apprehensive about what lies ahead.

Whatever the reason, your day-to-day life or maybe your relationship or career just isn't where you want it to be. It's not what you'd hoped for or expected right now. You feel you deserve better and want something more.

Together, we can address this. Let me help.


* COVID-19 *
Appointments are still available during the current Covid-19 restrictions. However all sessions are being held online until further notice.
In-Person Counselling

I offer hour-long counselling sessions for individuals and 90 minute relationship counselling sessions for couples.

Typically I meet face-to-face with clients on a weekly or fortnightly basis, however due to scheduling needs and other factors this can sometimes vary.

To expect weekly sessions is a good start, but we can discuss what works best for you.

Online Counselling

enjoy offering online therapy.

Basically you can receive all the same therapy services and be sitting comfortably at home on your own sofa instead of mine! There are no geographical boundaries when we talk online.

Typically, I use live video sessions via Skype, Facetime or Zoom. I can also provide live chat or telephone counselling sessions if preferred.

Online therapy ensures that I am available to those who have difficulty accessing services or physical limitations that can make office visits a struggle.
