My Story

A little bit about my background - I am Welsh born and bred, a mother of 4 and a grandmother of 2. 

I have been living on the beautiful Wirral Peninsular for the last 25+ years, I worked in IT in a niche retail environment for many years and before that I worked in primary schools as a nursery nurse (TA these days) and have lived in both the USA and the Netherlands.

I have always had a fascination with the mind which is why I originally did my psychology degree.

So a few years ago, wanting a change, I was drawn back onto the psychological path and retrained in Integrative Counselling and Hypnotherapy ...which I absolutely love doing .... plus at my age I come with plenty of lived experience now!

I found out whilst doing my degree that I am neurodiverse ... (my brain is just wired a little differently!) ... which brought about a mix of emotions, but also answered a lot of questions for me. I have learned to not be defined by a label but to look for the many strengths that it brings, and this outlook is what I hopefully bring to my counselling. I've also been on my own self awareness journey for a while now, so I do try and practice what I preach!

Best Self Therapy is my own private practice where I get to do sessions online UK wide via zoom; in-person counselling at Wellness, Birkenhead, Wirral and Walk & Talk counselling at some of the most beautiful areas of the Wirral ... I often get asked which I prefer, online or in-person - but to me if the therapeutic relationship works there is no difference if its face to face through a screen or physically sitting opposite in a counselling room.

(* I also volunteer one day a week at 'The Jade Roberts Project' in Liverpool, counselling adult clients in suicidal crisis.)

I feel it is an honour to be able to do this work, to provide the safe space and the listening ear so that my clients feel seen and heard ...for what may be the first time for some. I understand well the strength and courage it takes to come to therapy, and to let yourself be honest, open and vulnerable, so I will always listen with empathy and respond with no judgement.

I see you, the person, first ... before any issue that you bring.
