OpenView Counselling



I live in Rossendale and work throughout East Lancashire and Greater Manchester.  I hold a professional Counselling Diploma and am also a qualified Hypnotherapist and NHS Mediator and member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). 


I am guided by the BACP ethical framework, am fully insured for practice, hold a current enhanced CRB for my work with children and vulnerable adults, and undertake regular professional supervision.


My work in the NHS, schools, voluntary sector and private practice has provided me with a broad experience of successfully counselling men, women and children, through both long and short term therapy.


In addition to my private practice my counselling experience includes work in bereavement, domestic violence and substance misuse units, work for a national organisation offering therapy in schools and also operating a counselling service in hostels in the Manchester area.


Like everyone I have experienced my own personal life challenges including the stress of management in both industry and self employment and the distress caused by redundancy and I am passionate about offering others the opportunity to explore their issues.
