Couples therapy and Relationship issues

I have a vast experience of working at a busy Medical Centre, predominantly with people suffering depression, anxiety and panic. I now divide my time between working at various primary schools using play therapy and I also work as a private counsellor at Bridge House in Bolton, working with couples, relationship issues, adults and teenagers.

As well as working with adults and young people I also work with children of primary school age using play therapy which is non directive and is based on the person centred counselling style. Low confidence/self esteem can lead to low aspirations, poor educational achievement, truancy and exclusion from school. Counselling can help improve children’s classroom learning and build their resilience, providing them with brighter prospects and hopeful futures.
