As a qualified Integrative Psychotherapist, I offer short and longer-term counselling and psychotherapy from my private practice in Heaton, Bolton. This can take place at my therapy room, or we can arrange sessions on-line through Skype/alternative media, email or through telephone counselling.

I work in a way that is empathic, respectful, genuine and ethical . By building trust, I use our relationship within the therapy session to create the possibility of positive, long-term change.

My Qualifications & Experience
Master of Arts (MA) in Integrative Psychotherapy (BACP Accredited) (University of Central Lancashire)
Master in Education (Professional Practice in Higher Education) (University of Central Lancashire)

  • Aside from private practice, I have previously worked for 14 years as a Senior Lecturer at the University of Central Lancashire, within the School of Health
  • I worked as a Registered Nurse, as well as working in Higher Education as a Nurse Tutor and I have supported students from a range of health professions in developing leadership, continuing professional development and clinical supervision at undergraduate and postgraduate level. I have experience in coaching and mentoring. I continue to supervise trainee counsellors and psychotherapists.

Overall, this means I have experience of working within the healthcare setting for 20 years.
