Welcome to 

Fortitude Counselling

Thank you for stopping by.

The process of finding a counsellor and beginning therapy can feel like a very daunting task, whether this is your first time, or if you have been in therapy previously.

My role as your therapist is to help you find your own solutions, whether that is making effective changes in your life, or finding ways of coping with your problems. It is not meant to be an easy process and will only work and be effective if you’re ready to be really honest with yourself, and put in the work between sessions.

Going at your own pace, we will assess your current situation, wants and needs, thoughts and feelings, and I will support you in gaining insight and exploring your choices in moving towards change if that is your goal, or personal growth and development.

Our work together may include identifying patterns of behaviour that may no longer be helpful to you, or challenging your self-concept or negative thoughts and feelings.

Your problems are like you, unique and individual, and that is how I will treat you.​​

About Me

Hello, my name is Charli, and I began my counsellor training in 2010 at York St John University and qualified in 2016. 

I have been volunteering and working as a counsellor since September 2013, working within a variety of settings that have included primary schools, primary care and IAPT (Improving Access to Psychological Therapies), and I began seeing clients within my own private practice in March 2017. 

Alongside my counselling work, I also have a keen interest in law and psychology. I hope to undertake further study within both of these fields once I have achieved my Doctor of Professional Studies in Counselling and Psychotherapy, which I am due to start with the University of Chester in October 2021.
