I am a qualified Health Psychologist trained in a range of therapies including Motivational Interviewing and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and have experience and expertise in applying behaviour change science and principles.
I provide support for people wanting to make a change to their lives in order to live well and live healthy. Changing an element of your lifestyle can be extremely challenging, for example managing your weight, stopping smoking or reducing alcohol consumption. Often these factors are tied up with the complexities of our lives, managing stress, living with illness, overcoming obstacles in our lives. I work with people to help them make lasting and meaningful changes to behaviours that are causing them difficulties and find ways to improve overall health and wellbeing.

Psychologist, PsychD, HCPC - Clin. Psych.
Verified
I have been trained in a number of psychological theories and therapy models, including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), systemic and family working, Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), relationally focused therapy, mindfulness, Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy (DDP) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy ( ACT ).
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.

There is strong research evidence for ACT & CBT for depression & anxiety difficulties.
Is anxiety or excessive worry getting in the way for your? Are you stuck in a pattern of negative thinking? Or are you finding it hard to live with a traumatic event? Difficult thoughts and emotions can be overwhelming. This suggests you would benefit from structured therapy to learn some new ways of coping.

Acceptance and Commitment (ACT) Counsellors
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is a type of psychotherapy that helps you accept the difficulties that come with life. ACT is a form of mindfulness based therapy, theorising that greater well-being can be attained by overcoming negative thoughts and feelings. Essentially, ACT looks at your character traits and behaviours to assist you in reducing avoidant coping styles. ACT also addresses your commitment to making changes, and what to do about it when you can't stick to your goals.

If you're looking for ACT therapy in Manchester or for a Manchester ACT counsellor these professionals provide acceptance and commitment therapy, ACT group therapy, ACT therapy, and acceptance commitment therapy. They include ACT therapists, ACT psychologists, ACT psychotherapists and ACT counsellors.
