Life after loss


Counselling and Supervision in Skelmersdale, convenient for Southport, Liverpool, Ormskirk and Burscough


Are you struggling to come to terms with loss?

  • a recent or past bereavement
  • the end of a relationship
  • a change to your health
  • the kids leaving home

    Are there times when your loss just gets too much?

  • when you go home after work and the house is empty
  • when you turn the radio on and ‘your song’ comes on
  • when you realise there’s no more “us”
  • when you burst into tears in the supermarket
  • when you feel you can't talk to family or friends
  • when depression or anxiety are ruining your life


  • Home. Small feather and lake


    Maybe it’s time to:

  • get back 'the old me'
  • to have peace of mind
  • to adjust to life after loss
  • to be more confident socially
  • to learn to trust again
  • to speak to an experienced bereavement counsellor






    I am an experienced counsellor with a private therapy practice conveniently situated in Skelmersdale, with easy access from Liverpool, Southport, Burscough and Ormskirk.

    Although my expertise is in loss and bereavement counselling and therapy, I have also worked with hundreds of people with a diverse range of difficulties, including:

  • depression
  • anxiety
  • relationships
  • low self esteem
  • low confidence
  • stress
  • anger
  • relationships


    "Your help was invaluable and assisted me through one of the most difficult periods of my life in a calm, relaxed, and friendly manner. I have gone from being ‘at the end of my tether’ to a state where I feel much better able to cope with daily life. I have gained a better insight into my behaviour, increased self awareness and much better coping skills. I am hugely grateful.” K.,Chester


    “Thank you, counselling has helped me cope with the saddest and most difficult time of my life. I feel stronger and able to live my life in joy.” T., Southport


    Through my counsellor training and my own personal experience, I understand how loss or bereavement can turn your life upside down; it can feel devastating, and hard to live with new feelings of anger, guilt, depression, anxiety, fear, or loneliness. I’m here to support you in what might be the most difficult time in your life. I believe that with the right kind of support, and with the right coping strategies, you can find a way through.


    Therapies Available

  • Talking Therapy
    Usually the main approach we will use for your counselling - talking allows you to tell me your 'story', and what is going on for you. I listen to everything you say without judgement, expectation, or opinion.


  • Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
    Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is a problem-based approach used to deal with problems including depression, anxiety, panic attacks and fears. Using simple written exercises to look at negative automatic thoughts and behaviour, which can be used at home.


  • Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT)
    Sometimes referred to as 'tapping', EFT is a simple self-help technique based on energy points on the upper body, similar to those used in acupuncture (but without the needles!). Simple to learn and to practice, EFT can bring huge relief of many emotional and physical concerns, including, but not limited to, phobias, trauma, anxiety, cravings, and pain.


  • Mindfulness/Grounding/Meditation
    Simple and enjoyable techniques which help you to feel calm, less anxious, less depressed, sleep better, and be more in control of your actions and emotions.


  • Creative work
    Simple and enjoyable approaches using drawing, writing, toy models, stones or sand - helpful to uncover deep emotions when you can't think of the words to describe how you're feeling. Absolutely no artistic skill required!



    If you’d like to find out more about how I can help you, I’d love to meet you at a free 20 minute first meeting, where you can ask any questions you have, and get a feeling for how we might get along, with no obligations to book further sessions of therapy
