Covid-19 Update: I continue to offer online appointments via and am now resuming face-to-face counselling from my Chesterfield/Baslow base in line with health and safety guidelines. Please contact me for further details.

Welcome to Insync Counselling. If you are looking for a counsellor or psychotherapist in the Chesterfield and Baslow area, I hope the information contained in my website gives you a flavour of the counselling I offer, so that you can make an informed choice that works for you.


We are all born with unique potential and the capacity for growth and change. Sometimes the life challenges that come our way can seem overwhelming. Life events and experiences can leave us disconnected from our inner resources and we lose faith that things can ever be different. This is where a skilled counsellor or psychotherapist can make a big difference. Not by completing life's obstacle course for you, but by supporting and guiding your journey towards understanding and empowerment; awakening and harnessing dormant qualities that might otherwise remain hidden and closed to you. Whether you live in travelling distance of the Chesterfield, Baslow area and can access face-to-face appointments or would prefer online sessions, I hope the information you find here helps you take your next step into therapy.

What Could Counselling Offer Me?

The purpose of counselling is to help you recognise your strengths and reveal the beliefs and behaviours that could be restricting your emotional growth by talking openly and freely to someone who is impartial, empathetic and non-judgemental. Counselling offers many benefits including:

  • A better understanding of yourself, your strengths and weaknesses, your patterns in relationships and your unique needs
  • Identifying your goals and strategies to meet them
  • Finding resloutions to long-standing concerns, issues, worries or things you feel stuck with
  • Gaining insight into old patterns and creating new ones.

What Can Counselling Help With?

The counselling and psychotherapy that I offer is incredibly effective at getting to the root cause of issues, exploring and resolving them to secure lasting change. Often, the changes that occur may be broader in scope than originally anticipated. My Chesterfield counselling service is particulary useful for addressing:

  • Difficulties with relationships
  • Trauma, particularly emotional and early years attachment trauma
  • Feelings of being out of control of one's life
  • Depression, anxiety and stress
  • Personality Disorders
  • Low self-esteem and low self-confidence. Feelings of worthlessness.
  • Character traits that frustrate you, such as anger, lack of assertiveness, self-sabotage, procrastination, passive agressive behaviour, envy and jealousy. These all have underlying causes that can be explored and resolved with a skilled therapist
  • Guilt and shame
  • Bullying
  • Addictions
  • Grief and loss; particularly complex grief and loss
  • Life adjustments such as parenting, redundancy, divorce and separation, ageing, dementia, menopause
  • Abuse

What Can I Expect From My Therapist?

Growth and healing begin with a strong empathetic connection between therapist and client so that is where our work will start. But it takes more than this. You will be placing your trust in a complete stranger and this is an undertaking that I take very seriously. We will work at a pace that is right for you, gaining accurate insight into your emotional landscape and adapting interventions that are going to nurture you and secure progress. I offer a free half hour session, so that you have the opportunity to see if you feel comfortable with me and can ask questions without obligation. This session can also be used to explore any questions you might have, ideas around your goals and what you hope to achieve; if you are unsure of specific goals, I can work with you to identify some. Should you wish to proceed, I will work with you to build a therapeutic environment that is best suited to YOUR needs. Goals are regularly reviewed and progress monitored to ensure that you are getting the most out of your sessions.
