I work with people who are feeling stuck and looking for help to move forward. This could be around difficulty dealing with emotions, self-destructive behaviours, self-criticism or feelings of not being good enough. It could be being held back in life by anxiety, distressing thoughts or compulsive behaviours. It could involve uncertainty around questions of self-identity, relationships or life direction, or just a sense that things aren’t right. Whether these issues are recent or more long-standing, change for the better is possible and therapy can help.

As, primarily, a Person-Centred therapist, I understand that each person and counselling relationship is unique. With presence and genuineness, I strive to attune to each individual, wherever they may be in that moment. My professional training and experience serves to support and illuminate the journey we embark on, side by side, and enables me to respond with sensitivity to you as a whole person. Person-Centred Therapy trusts that each person innately possesses the capacity for fulfilment and authenticity when met with the safe yet challenging environment in which to explore and grow.

Hi, you may be feeling overwhelmed at the moment or finding yourself trying to cope with pressure from work or relationships or just life in general. Maybe you have been feeling down or anxious and don't know how to deal with the symptoms. Many people have been impacted by Covid and are finding it hard to adjust. I can offer you a safe space in which you can talk about anything without judgement. Together we can discover what is holding you back, making you feel stuck, or causing you to repeat unhealthy patterns of behaviour.

Sometimes the road gets rough, and the things we've always found so easy to do suddenly become overwhelming, that's when we need someone to talk to; Someone to listen and possibly shed a light in the darkness. Or maybe even someone just to be there.

If you are feeling overwhelmed with anxiety or having stress in your relationships, daily life can seem very hard. Low mood and sadness could leave you feeling lonely or even isolated. Perhaps you find yourself putting on a pretence that everything is okay, when the reality is very different. You might be unclear about what is troubling you. As an experienced counsellor, I provide affordable therapy in a confidential, safe environment, helping you make sense of how you’re feeling. Counselling can also give you practical ways of coping; I will work at your pace during sessions so that you feel truly heard and accepted, not judged.

Sometimes life throws us challenges both through past and present experiences, which knock us off our feet and we become engulfed in uncertainty, worry and fear. It could be that we start to doubt ourselves and feel that we are not good enough or we are unable to cope, leading to anxiety and depression. Whatever you are going through, it deserves care, attention and compassion and I believe that you have the inner wisdom to work through these issues as you are the person that knows yourself better than anyone,

As a counsellor, I will offer you a confidential space to explore the issues you are facing, the questions of meaning and possibilities of resolution; to work through difficult emotions and look for peace with the past. I work with people on issues around depression, anxiety, relationships, self-esteem, bereavement, past trauma and abuse, identity and diversity. Your sessions will be a place where you can have the freedom and safety to be; to develop your own identity, accept yourself and make positive decisions about your future.

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.

The pandemic and lockdown saw a dramatic increase in social isolation and loneliness, but it also saw an increase in people reaching out for help from counselling and psychotherapy. As a joint-qualified counsellor and social worker, I have seen this change first-hand. It’s okay to recognise that you are feeling overwhelmed and need help; it’s okay to realise that you are stuck in a pattern of behaviour that you know is doing you no good; it’s okay to recognise that there’s something in your life that you want to change. As a Person-Centred therapist, my job is to work with you to create a space from which change is possible.

I started my counselling training over 12 years ago and have years of experience working with people who are striving to understand themselves and these complicated lives that we are all living. I will never get over how much courage it takes to reach out for help at a time of crisis and I am always blown away at the strength and resilience of the human mind. I believe that we all have the potential to grow & heal and that counselling works to facilitate this process. Counselling is for everyone. Not just those who may consider themselves to be in an extreme crisis. I treat each client as an individual working with your unique needs

Do you feel as though you're 'stuck' in a place you'd rather not be? Do you feel as though life is becoming gradually less enjoyable? Do you find yourself asking 'is this it'? I've felt that way too - most people have. I help people realise that unwanted thoughts, feelings, and circumstances can, and do, change. We often define ourselves through our fears, insecurities, and anxieties and in doing so create a mental prison around ourselves. Common behaviours such as resistance and avoidance can make this even worse. Using traditional psychotherapy techniques, I focus on releasing people from these kinds of emotional chains.

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 Manchester?
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 Manchester 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.
