Talking about your issues and concerns with a counsellor offers a different way of looking at life and can bring about positive change at any age. However, finding a therapist with whom you feel comfortable, and whom you can develop a good working relationship with, is crucial. Never be afraid to ask your therapist about their training and qualifications, and check they have experience in working with your particular issue. A competent therapist will be quite happy to answer your questions and discuss their training and professional experience. I would recommend that you only see a therapist who is accredited with one of the professional associations in the UK. These therapists have had to go through a rigorous and lengthy process to acquire accreditation, and you are assured that they are working in an ethical and accountable fashion.

I currently offer one to one counselling in Kendal and Kirkby Lonsdale to adults over the age of 18 years.

I also supervise the work of counsellors and psychotherapists.
