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

I know how overwhelming it can feel trying to find a therapist who is right for you. It is sometimes hard to get a feel for what kind of person a therapist really is beyond their qualifications and training... which is kind of important if you are going to be vulnerable with them! Let me show you a little of who I am so you can see if we are a good match. My name is Rose. Before I began facilitating healing for others, I spent years dedicated to my own healing. I experienced severe & complex trauma as a child and teenager that resulted in various forms of dis-ease in my adult life.I tried talking therapies and although I could under

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.

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.

All First Sessions - £40 NHS & Harley Street Experience. Sometimes life can be overwhelming and we can be dealing with something and you may just feel stuck and unable to break out of the cycle. You may need to talk to someone to help understand your thought patterns and change them. It is okay to not have the answers, counselling, and CBT is an opportunity to look at yourself with honesty and start making changes.

I'm really interested in people - who we are and why we become who we are. In order to understand ourselves it can help to talk about ourselves, our experiences and feelings. I can offer a safe, secure and non judgmental space where you can do this. Together we can work out why you have reached a point in your life that may be causing you problems, or why you may be feeling stuck. I work with people who are overwhelmed by their circumstances or feel anxious and depressed and find it difficult to move forward. Counselling can give you an opportunity to examine how you can change and improve your circumstances.

Our childhood traumas and early experiences of relationships affect us as we mature and go through life. Not all of us have had the ideal relationships we needed and this can affect us in different ways. The attachment patterns we develop in response served us once but may not anymore and these ways of relating can be changed in therapy to lead to a more fulfilling life with self, others and how we experience the world.

Hi, I’m Sharon, thankyou for taking the time to browse my profile. I am highly passionate about working with people to create positive change and feel very privileged to do so. I have experience of working with individuals with a wide range of difficulties such as depression, anxiety, abuse, loss, low self-esteem and family/relationship difficulties. It is normal that everyone will have times when they feel anxious, overwhelmed or low. However if those feelings start to interfere in everyday life, or if you’re facing pressure professionally or in your relationships, then it could be a good time to seek the help of a counsellor.

Hi, my name is Ben and I'm the lead Clinical Psychologist for Project Trauma. I set up Project Trauma to provide the kind of personalised, compassionate psychological support that people need following events in their life which they have struggled to cope with. Psychological distress can affect anyone and everyone will have a different reaction to traumatic events in their life. We all have different tolerance and ways of coping, but at some stage in our life we will all need help from somewhere. Recently I have been working extensively with individuals suffering very understandable health anxiety related to the Covid-19 Pandemic.

Do your suffer with anxiety and do you want help, then I am able to help with this. Anxiety can plague you throughout your life. If this describes you then I can help you understand the reasons why. Have you engaged in therapy before and nothing seems to work, then I can help you understand why. Do you struggle to regulate your emotions and you do not understand why, then therapy can help you explore why you have unhelpful patterns of behaviour. This may relate to early life experiences.

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.

Life tends to give us challenges and difficulties, and sometimes we struggle to know what to do. We become stuck with a problem and become anxious and depressed about it. Counselling can help you to find a way forward: to rediscover your own resources, to develop your personal strength and resiliance, to develop trust and change unhappy relationship patterns, better your communication, develop trust, adapt to life changes, or improve your relationship.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
Some of the most common types of mental health providers in Manchester are psychologists, licensed counsellors, therapists, and psychotherapists, all of whom diagnose mental health conditions and provide individualised treatment.

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. 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.
