I am a supportive and empathetic therapist; who provides a safe, non judgemental environment for clients to explore their difficulties. I believe that the experience of sharing difficult feelings; of being 'heard' and not judged can be liberating and empowering. Counselling can help you understand why you think, feel and act like you do and help you create a new design for living.

As a BACP registered counsellor with over 15 years experience, I support people through depression, anxiety, trauma, addiction, abuse, loss amongst many other issues. Having a confidential space to talk, a space just for you, can start you on the path to making positive changes. Each person's journey differs so I aim to explore it with you, adapting my skills to fit your needs. I believe each of us have the ability to enhance our lives, sometimes we just need a little help along the way. Taking that first step to meet a counsellor requires courage; I understand this and aim to make it as easy as possible.

Life can be overwhelming at times and it’s hard to know what to do for the best. The Covid era has been a strange time that’s tested relationships, problematised goals, brought great suffering, loss and anxiety, and made even straightforward decisions and plans feel impossible. Even aside from recent events, it’s so rare in our day-to-day lives to have chance to pause, reflect, and explore what we want and what the blocks might be to getting it. I'd like to work with you if you've ever felt stuck, lost, confused, lonely, sad, uncertain or guilty about anything, past or present - we can explore and untangle those feelings together.

Life has changed so much in the past months, and we are seeing the impacts of that change on mental health. The spirit of 'just carry on' can only last so long before you need to talk, shout, scream and cry, to allow yourself the time for that to put you first. My experiences in the voluntary sector and private practice have shown me that no matter where you are in life, emotional issues and crisis are levelling, their impact devastating and to admit you need to talk to someone in itself can feel daunting. However this in itself can be a positive first step to gaining a healthier relationship with yourself.

Counselling/ Psychotherapy: Effective counselling reduces confusion, allowing you to make effective decisions leading to positive changes in your attitude, behaviours & overall well-being. The ultimate aim of counselling is to enable you to make your own choices, reach your own decisions & go forward with a greater sense of clarity & self-management. Hypnotherapy & mindfulness can be introduced as a type of complementary therapy in which hypnosis is used to create a state of focused attention and increased suggestibility during which positive suggestions are made to rid you of emotional blockage. Mindfulness keeps us focused

Often clients contact me when other therapy has not helped them in the way they had hoped. This is often due to the complexity of difficulties being layered perhaps in a history of trauma. Distress in the body and mind can be triggered by what appears to be something superficial. This can open up the past or come at a time when our emotional resilience is low so this event has a greater impact than it may have done. We can find ourselves not being able to function in our normal way. Many clients often identify as 'good copers' and those who 'just get on with it'. Perhaps we can't now - this is frightening and can derail us.

Does it feel to you like no matter how hard you try, you can't seem to shift how you are feeling and you are overwhelmed by it all? Change is possible and there is a way through. Imagine if you woke up this morning and everything feels right, and you are able to make sense and take control of what is going on, allowing you to live your life free from limitations. It may not be easy, but you can begin to feel that life has more meaning and that you are experiencing healthy wellbeing again.

My background is providing counselling to LGBTQ + & questioning people in a community charity setting, and I know of the barriers people can face when trying to access help for mental health.
I offer long and short term therapy with a specialism in working with members of the LGBTQ + community. I have a strong belief that people should be able to define life on their own terms and find their own meaning. I am interested in helping clients examine what can get in the way of that, whether it is personal history, external pressures, feelings of shame, or expectations of what is and isn’t normal. I work with the person rather than with any diagnosis believing that we all are doing the best we can within the environment and resources available and I want to help you discover what is important to you.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, psychologist, or counsellor, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counsellor in Bury?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Psychologists in Bury specialise in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others. Finding a psychologist or counsellor who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

Can I afford counselling?
Yes. Most counsellors offer reasonable rates or will work on a sliding scale basis. Many accept health insurance. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the counsellor.
