What Is Counselling? Counselling Wirral, Counselling Birkenhead

Counselling is a talking therapy that enables you to explore your issues in a safe,

confidential environment without being judged. It is very rare that we are free to share

our thoughts and feelings with someone without fear. Each counselling session is 1 hour

and the amount of sessions required differs from person to person.

How I work

I offer the Psychodynamic Approach (Please see Psychodynamic Page for more information) I offer counselling on a one to one basis and Relationship Counselling which may include couples, family or friends. I believe we are all unique. We may share similarities in terms of our colour, gender, age and so forth but we all have different experiences and responses to it which make us who we are. I believe we all possess the ability to change, much of which comes from our understanding and reflection. 

I am supportive, empathetic, challenging and creative and believe in empowering clients to achieve their life purpose.

  • Bereavement
  • Stress Management
