I am a Counsellor and Psychotherapist based in Manchester City Centre, offering both in person and online sessions. You may be struggling with a specific issue or pattern of behaviour and know already what you would like to talk about. Alternatively, you may simply be feeling down and low and need support with processing your feelings and emotions. Counselling may be able to offer a fresh perspective, or support you to make changes needed to get you to a better place. I work with clients from all backgrounds but have particular experience working with men and with LGBT+ issues.

I work with people from all walks and with many issues but all feel a need to change something in their lives. I can create a safe space to explore and understand the problems you bring, both individually or together with partners. I have helped many clients deal with the issues arising from depression, self doubt, anxiety and trauma, or changing notions of self worth, especially in the face of work stress.

"Having walked a certain path, as a Christian, my Faith in God and leaning on Him has been the greatest pillar I ever held on to experiencing my own post-traumatic growth. However, I value individual differences, respect, diversity, culture, integrity, honesty and ability to find your own path, grow, connect and build an enduring relationship. I firmly believe individuals can be empowered to find their own solutions. I am aware I might not have all the answers or solutions, but I could give one or two suggestions. I am happy to sit with people who find themselves in a dilemma, stuck in difficult and uncomfortable situations".

My approach is to get to know you as an individual and create a space where you can explore your thoughts, feelings and actions, free from any judgements. I will always start with you and your experience first, so therefore working in a person-centred way. As a trained integrative counsellor some concepts of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) or Transactional Analysis (TA) can be incorporated into the therapy if appropriate. However, the main focus will be on the therapeutic relationship where at the core, empathy, my full attention, and respect for you will always be present.

I have worked with a range of issues and clients. Frequently my clients have experienced developmental trauma or abuse although they come initially when their life has become a struggle, whether it be due to unhealthy coping stategies, problems in relationships or mental/physical distress. They need to feel that there is someone who will listen and help them with their past and to gain back control over their future. For many clients there is a need to be understood and to have the space to grieve for what they have lost whilst having the opportunity to be able to identify and embrace their true inner self.

Hello and a very warm welcome to you! People come to therapy for a variety of reasons. Perhaps you are experiencing difficulty with knowing what your feelings are. Or are struggling to express them. Alternately, you may be feeling very disconnected, unfulfilled or empty. Maybe you are confused about who you are, or what you want from life, and this prevents you from living in the moment. Are you trying to cope with a difficult life event, or is there just the sense that things are not right?

I aim to take the stress out of therapy by providing flexibility around the time of sessions and delivery of sessions so that you can focus on what is bringing you to therapy. Through my free 20 minute telephone consultation we can get a feel for if we would work well together. I offer outdoor therapy allowing us to work together in the fresh air and natural surroundings of Heaton Park as we literally and figuratively walk side by side through the issues that are bringing you therapy. I deliver a person centred approach that places you as the expert as I guide the conversation and help you to make sense of the life around you.

I think it’s something we all need in our lives, particularly when we are finding things difficult. Being heard in this way can be the starting point for seeing things more clearly and either changing, or living more easily, with the things that trouble us.

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

Going round the circle, even though you do to get out? It can be frustrating and draining. Or maybe, you have been living a fulfilling, happy life up till now. But something happened and it changed the way you think and feel about yourself and the world around you. It can be confusing and scary. Maybe you feel, as if you were standing at the crossroads and were too afraid to choose your path. It can make you feel unable and hopeless.

My specialism is working with children and young people, as I enjoy supporting people during transitional times. I particularly like the 'outside of the box' and curious nature of young people, as well as their often very frank attitude! However, I also enjoy working with adult clients and welcome interesting discussions of psychological complexities within session. I can offer a spectrum of support, ranging from a broader exploration of certain life and relationship patterns to a very focused intervention for a particular problem.

**Webcam/ Telephone sessions available** Hey there. If you're experiencing low mood, stress, anger, anxiety or worry, then it could be helpful to consider seeking therapy. Usually even working out where to even start can be a difficult and confusing process, and CBT is a fantastic way to help you to unpick problematic thoughts, feeling, behaviours and cycles which could be maintaining the problems you're experiencing

What type of mental health professional is right for me?

Services offered, education, and credentials vary by type of mental health professional. Each professional in Manchester then may specialise in certain areas, such as depression, marriage counselling, or anxiety. Although many mental health providers are not licensed to prescribe medication, they may coordinate with a provider who can.

Both in-person and online therapy sessions are available from most psychologists.
How to find a specialist?
You can refine your search using the filters on this page. There are several categories you can filter by to find mental health professionals with the experience you are looking for. You may want to filter for CBT Psychologists in Manchester, or Child Psychologists in Manchester.

Many find it useful to use filters to view only psychologists that have experience working with certain issues, like Manchester psychologists specialising in EMDR.


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.

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.
