I have a lot of experience working alongside the local authority, CAFCASS and family courts.
I provide psychological therapy and interventions to individuals who are struggling with their relationships. This might be because of conflict with a partner, or parenting difficulties. Or perhaps you're separated and finding it hard to co-parent. Perhaps you would like some help to deal with difficult events that have happened in your relationships in the past, so that they have less influence on your life now. Maybe you have children's services or the family court involved in your life and you'd like some help to resolve the situation. (I am happy to accept referrals through the courts if this is discussed with me first).

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.

I tend to use an carefully crafted mix of the following approaches: EMDR, CBT, CFT, CAT, DBT, Systemic Theory, Internal Family Systems and Psychodynamic concepts.
I am passionate about trauma informed practice: making every effort to understand the impact of people’s lived experiences on their daily lives. My approach is based on psychological formulation, to make sense of what a person is experiencing, and then using a range of integrated approaches to help people to make changes. I care about empowering individuals to live the lives they want to live, and take a very human and empathic approach to working with people's distress.

Standard or nature-based art therapy & mindfulness for stress, anxiety, burnout, depression, family issues or work-related issues. Having a safe non-judgemental space to explore challenges, memories or traumas can help us heal & move forward. We can start wherever you are, you choose the pace. Deepening nature-connection can help manage difficult feelings as well as uplift/soothe us. Sometimes it is difficult to describe emotions with words, that's where art can help. It's not about creating masterpieces. Using art & nature online might seem counter-intuitive, but it works surprisingly well. No need to be outdoors during the session

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.

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.

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.

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.
