Are you looking for support while working through fear, anxiety, & stress? Are these having negative effects on your relationship with yourself, your personal relationships & friendships? Is someone close experiencing them? Perhaps you have reached a crossroads, are grieving the loss of something or someone dear? Wherever you are on the path of life I offer a safe space providing support and exploration of needs and anxieties, working with you to make positive changes. My experience of working in the addictions field has also made me aware of issues that can develop and the impact this can have on an individual and their family.

Anxiety and depression are extremely common and in a world of pressure many of us are suffering in ways that don't fit a label and often others can't see. You deserve better than that and I built my practice to ensure hope and help is available to anyone.

I am a Counsellor based in Manchester offering In person and online sessions. Life can be challenging, and in places it can feel intolerable and overwhelming it can be difficult to know where to start unravelling this, how to make changes, what changes, if any, we need to make, and to try to make sense of why we feel the way that we do. This can be a very painful experience but however dark it may be today, doesn't mean tomorrow won't be lighter, counselling can offer an opportunity to be heard and to be understood. I work with clients from all backgrounds but have particular experience working with Addiction and with LGBT+ issues.

There are many reasons why someone might seek therapy. You could be a stage in your life where you are confused about who you really are and what to do next. You may be haunted by old traumas or facing new challenges. It may be that you are experiencing relationship or family issues, there may be problems at work. You may be going through grief and loss, or facing illness or disability. Any of this could leave you feeling anxious, depressed, overwhelmed or burnt out. Alternatively, you may not know why you are struggling with your mental health. I provide a calm, warm, supportive presence to help you figure it all out.

I have extensive therapy experiences in supporting a wide range of challenges and all walks of life. I strive to work with you in a way which ensures that you can completely be 'just you'. You can be comfortable to bring any difficulties and unspoken thoughts and feelings to me, and we together find out 'the why(s)' in your life, relationships and in you. We recognize it is not easy, though I devote to building trust, that you can develop your own voice and resilience. We walk together to put listening, understanding and compassion first, before taking changes which are manageable, realistic and sustainable.

Often we turn to therapy when we are faced with problems we can no longer carry alone. No longer feeling at home within ourselves, we feel called to reconnect with who we are. When we experience a ‘loss of self’, a painful rift emerges within the psyche. We feel severed from meaning, purpose and joy. This loss can be caused by any number of things - relationship issues, challenging life transitions, grief - and can be experienced as any number of symptoms: depression, anxiety, self-destructive behaviours. It can also be caused by the past invading our present in the persistent resurfacing of old psychological wounds and traumas.

People come for therapy for many different issues. A common theme is that people want to get a greater sense of themselves and understanding of what may have caused their issues and how they might grow past these challenges. Therapy can help you feel better about yourself and improve your mental health.
