Face to Face
In Person at Hawarden Wellness Centre
Online Zoom and telephone sessions available
Welcome to Changing Places
Offering a safe and confidential space for you to be yourself, explore your feelings, emotions and experiences without feeling judged. Where your needs come first. Working in an integrative way, combining Person Centred, Psychodynamic and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) to best fit your needs, we will work together toward achieving your aims.
The practice is based in Hawarden, at the Hawarden Wellness Centre in a comfortable and private room for face to face working or if you prefer we can work on Zoom or on the Phone. Sometimes the hardest thing to do is to ask for help when we need it most but if you can do it, you are giving yourself the opportunity to work through your issues and achieve your goals through Counselling.
I started my own Counselling journey many years ago, when I felt I had no-one else to turn to that I felt I could talk to about how I was feeling. Counselling helped me get through my own struggles with life and left an imprint on me that has lasted to this day. Just the ability to be able to talk to someone independent without the fear of judgement or that something I said would be shared with others was so powerful and life changing for me. I realised later in life that I wanted to learn more about how to help others through their own struggles and this set me on a path to training as a Counsellor. I've since worked as a Volunteer Bereavement Counsellor at the Hospice of the Good Shepherd in Chester and started my own Private Practice where I work with clients from a variety of backgrounds and life challenges and feel privileged to do so. Prior to becoming a Counsellor, I've worked in various sectors from SME's to Blue Chip organisations, from the shop floor up to Management level. I've lived and worked overseas, which has given me experience of different cultures, people and places and has helped me to develop a broad understanding of the many challenges we face in life, through relationships with others and the internal desires to be content and at peace with our place in the world. All of which contributes to my work as a Counsellor.
