Counselling Chester

-- Currently unavailable --



Welcome for counselling, psychotherapy and relationship counselling. I am a fully qualified and experienced counsellor and cognitive behavioural psychotherapist (CBT). I offer all my clients a safe, professional, non-judgemental and confidential environment in which you can explore any past or present issues. 


In an initial meeting we have our first opportunity to discuss what has been troubling you and how these difficulties are affecting you. This meeting will also give you an opportunity to decide whether you feel that my therapeutic approach may be helpful for you to manage or overcome your difficulties. I can offer both short and long term counselling and CBT depending on your individual needs.


With my CBT work I offer evidence based interventions adapted to each individual's needs. I have experience of working with many different issues such as abuse, anxiety and stress, bereavement, loss and grief, depression, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and relationship issues.


If you would like to know more or to make an appointment to see me please send me a message.
