I have received additional training, in working with clients from the Black, Asian and LGBTQ + communities, and use affirmative practice.
I am a qualified person-centred counsellor and psychotherapist based in Manchester and offering online counselling to the UK. My approach is warm and friendly and I work with care and compassion. I offer a safe space, free from judgement, where you can be yourself and explore any issues that may be causing you confusion, discomfort or distress. You will decide what we talk about and we will always work at a pace that is comfortable for you. It is important, to me, that you feel at ease working with me, so I offer a free first session (50 minutes), so you can see how I work and decide whether you wish to continue.

I am part of the LGBT + community and identify as a cis gay man. As a consequence I have seen how life can throw many diverse LGBTQ -related challenges at us: loss, crisis, change - that cause us to question our sense of self. Yet I believe within these challenging times we have the ability to grow and develop - even flourish - through the untangling of our internal and external worlds: who we are, our authentic selves, others’ around us as well as the world in which we live.

Facing challenges in your sex life or relationship? Finding life difficult and feeling it could be better? Wanting to explore your identity? Hoping to heal from trauma? If the answer to any of these questions is yes, then I may be able to help. I am a fully qualified psychosexual and relationships therapist and counsellor offering support to individuals, couples and other relationships. I approach therapy from a number of different therapeutic approaches, working with you directly to understand your goals and tailoring the therapy to your specific needs.

I am culturally sensitive and LGBTQ friendly.
I work with adults on various issues such as anxiety, depression, life cycle and other transitions, relationships, spirituality and racial issues, and more. Yet perhaps what you are feeling or struggling with does not have a clear title or category. Perhaps a sense that something is a little "off", or could be better, is what is urging you to seek someone to speak with.

I also have extensive experience supporting LGBTQ + and ethnic minority communities to survive and thrive despite systemic racism/oppression, and I use an intersectional, holistic framework in my practice.
It's not easy accessing therapy and it's natural to feel worried about being understood or having to explain aspects of your identity and culture to a stranger. I offer a space where you don't need to do that, so we can get to work on the things you need help with. I have a gentle, trauma-informed approach where I put your safety first and where you can progress at your own pace. Sessions are always collaborative, which means that your input and feedback are a key part of the process as you're the expert in your own life and what you need to feel better.

Do you feel like you are holding yourself back, putting yourself down and not living the life you really want? Would you appreciate discovering how to be your “real self” without putting on an act and learning to like and respect yourself? I work with people who have identified that they have feelings of low self-esteem or low confidence and want to make changes so that they can live their lives in the fullest way possible.

My way of working is somewhat dependent on you and your wants from a therapy space. I am trained to work with CBT, person-centred and attachment based therapy. I have done additional training in: Somatic Abolitionism, Emotional Regulation Skills and CBT adapted to work with those that self-define as autistic. I have worked with many clients and believe therapy works best by meeting the client where they are and towards what they identify they need. I work openly with race and other forms of systemic oppression in therapy and support clients from minoritised identities to explore this in therapy.

No matter our age, life seems to offer us challenges, again and again. Have you ever wondered how to deal with its uncertainty and confusion, with things not turning out as we had hoped, with the loss of our sense of who we are and where we are going? If so, you are not alone! I believe it is a part of the human experience that at different times in our lives, we all face loss, bereavement, feeling stuck, and/or a crisis of meaning and purpose.​ This can also come in the form of a mental health 'crisis' - such as anxiety, depression and self-harm - or might come in the form of a spiritual crisis, or sense of hopelessness.
