I am part of the LGBT+ community and identify as cis gay man using he/him pronouns.
I believe that human wellness is multidimensional. No singular event, element or experience of living can truly cause wellness or suffering. It’s a complex interplay between various factors which make up our experience of life. With this in mind, there can be no singular therapy and counselling service that can heal all. There can be no singular psychological approach which is capable of explaining the complexity of the human experience. This is why my approach is integrative and holistic, with a collaborative style that pulls in ideas from various models and ideologies.

Although I regularly work with clients of all ages and genders, the majority of my clients tend to be young men , who have unresolved feelings or experiences which are impacting on their daily lives. I work as an integrative counsellor, from a person-centred perspective. This means that you can bring whatever you wish to the session, while we work at your pace and depth. I employ theory and techniques from CBT, psychodynamic and other therapeutic philosophies which I feel may be useful. Where we start is not the important thing as ultimately, you will naturally discover the things that matter the most to you.

I am part of the LGBT+ community and identify as a cis gay man . As a consequence I have seen how life can throw many diverse LGBTQ-related challenges at us: loss, crisis, change - that cause us to question our sense of self. Yet I believe within these challenging times we have the ability to grow and develop - even flourish - through the untangling of our internal and external worlds: who we are, our authentic selves, others’ around us as well as the world in which we live.

Throughout life we all suffer from personal, emotional and psychological issues. Usually we overcome these but sometimes we can get stuck, tangled up and become negatively affected. If you are finding yourself experiencing anxiety or depression, or struggling with any other issues, then know that help is always available. Whatever it is, I am here to listen attentively, with empathy, without any judgement, and in complete confidence. There are multiple approaches to counselling, but rather than push a particular one (that may not be suitable for you) I prefer we work together to decide which is the best way forward for you.

The world around us has become more complex, with things to fear having increased significantly, and yet our way of perceiving the world remains unchanged. Human beings are programmed to be aware of the threat of danger in our environment, which can result in us feeling on edge, distressed and unsatisfied. Therapy is space to make better sense of your personal world and learn ways of living in line with your values and goals. My ideal client would be a child, young person or adult who has been living with a problem they can no longer manage alone. I tailor therapy to suit you as an individual to promote feelings of safety and trust.

Hi there. As a therapist, I offer a safe place to explore a wide range of personal and private issues in confidence. I believe that people suffer unnecessarily due to a lack of education on the purpose, function and management of the mental and emotion parts of ourselves. I want to bridge the gap between those that have studied and those that have struggled with mental health. I am here to support you in your journey by offering a friendly, impartial and philosophical yet practical perspective, to assist you in understanding what may be going on and to devise and tailor a way to healing and happiness.

Are you an LGBTQ+ person and looking to gain some clarity in life? Are you struggling with your romantic relationships or trying to make sense of your past? You might find that you feel isolated, alone and are missing out on connections with loved ones. These difficult feelings can cloud the parts of your life which should bring you joy; this unhappiness can lead to further disconnect with those around us.

Our past and present are intimately linked by our memories. Our memories are heavily influenced and based on feelings we had surrounding an event or experience. These experiences may be impacting your life right now, even the ones that might seem irrelevant or insignificant. If we don't become aware of this connection it will keep affecting our future, which over time can cause us stress. Prolonged stress can manifest itself in physical forms, including illness, lack of energy, problems with sleep, headaches, depression and anxiety. When you are mentally healthy you are able to handle life's challenges.

So often clients' unhelpful experiences of therapy are attributed to their therapist being "silent", "difficult to connect with" or (at worst) "like a brick wall". The psychologically informed, dedicated and authentic experience I deliver requires me to be active, present and, primarily, something resembling an authentic human being whom I hope you will trust and feel at ease with. You will have the time and space to talk (without awkward silences!) and where desired, I can share with you knowledge/theory acquired from 10 years clinical experience, to help us collaboratively explore, enlighten and enhance your lived experience.

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.

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.

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.
