Are you an LGBTQ+ person and looking to gain some clarity in life? Are you struggling with your romantic relationships or trying to make sense of your past? You might find that you feel isolated, alone and are missing out on connections with loved ones. These difficult feelings can cloud the parts of your life which should bring you joy; this unhappiness can lead to further disconnect with those around us.

Whatever you’re going through, you’ve arrived here because you are looking for something in your life to be different. This could be the way you perceive yourself, your relationships with others, or your world. It can be difficult to know where to turn in times like this and sometimes you can feel very alone with your own experiences, struggling to open up to those around you for fear of being burdensome, not understood or accepted. Believing that each person can be empowered to find their own answers, we’ll work as a team to facilitate insight, as well as to discover solutions to problems.

Everybody's family is a bit dysfunctional right? That's what you tell yourself anyway, when your heart sinks as 'Mum' appears on your phone. And you're ok now anyway. Well, mostly. You have a good job, friends, you go out. You're a proper adult and you have the Valentino shoes to prove it. Except late at night your brain starts whispering ‘you don’t belong, your life’s a mess, nobody will ever really love you’. Your carefully curated life feels fragile. You fear it’s only a matter of time until your adult card is revoked.

At any stage in life, we can experience changes or moments where it becomes difficult to cope with our thoughts and feelings. This can result in feeling stuck and not knowing how to process what we're experiencing. What can make this more difficult is knowing who or how to open up to others or feeling like what you're experiencing is too much for someone to understand. Having a therapist allows you to share all parts of you, parts that are accepted wholeheartedly without shame or judgement, which may not feel possible even with those you feel closest to.

Are you struggling with your thoughts or feelings at the moment and don’t feel like you have anyone you can express them to? Do you need somebody to listen who isn’t going to judge you and will be able to show you understanding and compassion? Are you feeling anxious and looking for someone to soothe and comfort you? Do you need someone to listen to your worries and your beliefs about yourself? Many of us think and feel this way but feel alone as we don’t share how we feel. A kind, non-judgemental ear can really help you to feel heard and accepted.

I believe that human wellness is multidimensional. No singular event, element or experience of living can truly cause wellness or suffering. It’s a complex interplay between various factors which make up our experience of life. With this in mind, there can be no singular therapy and counselling service that can heal all. There can be no singular psychological approach which is capable of explaining the complexity of the human experience. This is why my approach is integrative and holistic, with a collaborative style that pulls in ideas from various models and ideologies.

At certain points in our lives, we might find ourselves in what may seem like an unbreakable cycle of self-destructive behaviours, overwhelming emotions and a sense of disconnect to those around us, or perhaps even within ourselves. If you’re reading this, it is likely that you currently find yourself somewhere within that cycle or you may have feelings of anxiety, depression or low self-worth. You may be experiencing relationship difficulties, intrusive and obsessive thoughts, self-harm, child-hood trauma or grief. Whatever the reason may be, I just want to firstly remind you that you are not alone.

Each professional in Manchester then may specialise in certain areas, such as depression, marriage counselling, or anxiety.

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.
