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, facilitating with you meaningful change. My experience of working in the addictions field has made me aware of what issues can develop and the impact this can have on an individual and their family.

Hello, I'm a qualified counsellor and psychotherapist based in Levenshulme, Manchester. Life can be hard and it can be confusing. Events and relationships from our past can sometimes, out of awareness, impact us in the present. This can feel confusing, unsettling or even scary. I offer a warm, safe and compassionate place where you can feel heard and where we can try make sense of what is happening in your life. For the past 10 years I have supported people with a range of issues such as low mood, anxiety, shame, trauma, emotional dysregulation, relationship difficulties, self harm and suicidal ideation.

You're already sick of Christmas. Every Christmas advert sets you a little more on edge. You know there’s no let up now until January and the knot in your stomach is growing. The jolly meals, the snow fights, the cosy fireside scenes feel like they’re laughing at you. You're embarrassed of your own Christmas memories so you pretend it was fine. All the Diptyque candles in the world can’t erase the shouting and awkward silences or the wishing you could go somewhere else. And now you don’t even want to go back. So you field the endless questions of 'what are you doing for Christmas', put your phone on silent and hope for the best.

Whether you are feeling anxious, depressed, overwhelmed or experiencing any other feeling that precludes you from enjoying your life and reaching your potential, therapy will offer you a safe space where you can reconnect with yourself. As a person-centred counsellor I believe that when offered a non-judgemental, welcoming space and warmth, you can find your own solutions and paths that would lead you to growth and resilience.

Life can be hard, and sometimes the struggle to make sense of your feelings can seem overwhelming. This is ok. You may be at a point in your life when you feel stuck, and unable to move on, and don't know what to do. This is absolutely ok. You may feel that your life could improve and that you could live it more fully. Definitely ok. You may have noticed you keep repeating unhelpful behaviour patterns. This is ok, too.

I imagine it's overwhelming reading all these blurbs and trying to figure out which one stands out for you, so I'm not going to add to the noise. Qualified therapist and supervisor, 10 years' full time experience, bloke, getting on a bit these days, sense of humour, personable and down to earth, approachable and friendly, I will do my best to understand you and support you but I will also challenge you to get out of whatever is keeping you stuck when appropriate! I generally work with individuals but also offer LGBTQIA+ friendly couples/relationship counselling as this can be a difficult to access service.

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.

Are you your own worse critic? Do you take better care of others than you do yourself? Do you feel that people don't really know the "real" you? And if they did know the real you, they wouldn't like you? Do you keep finding yourself in relationships that feel toxic? Do you feel deep down that there is something not quite right? Do you worry that you are too much for other people? Or that others can't be trusted? Do you wish for a time when you could feel happy and content and relaxed with just being yourself? I can help you feel more compassionate towards yourself so that you stop giving yourself such a hard time and enjoy life more

I believe that life is filled with challenges and obstacles for a reason; that these have inherent in them a great potential for personal growth and transformation that only becomes manifest once we face our problems and endeavour to understand them. The first step towards overcoming our sorrow is to listen to what it has to tell us: the lesson that it is here to teach. Nonetheless, most of us do not have the presence, nor the guidance, nor the knowledge of how to provide our difficult thoughts and emotions with the space that they need. This lack of space is what leads to increased anxiety, depression, as well as low self-esteem.

I believe that the therapist and client come together as a team to work through issues that may stand in the way of you reaching your potential. Through my training, I have mainly used Transactional Analysis, but also have some experience working in a solution-focussed way and like to work integratively as each person is an individual who may like to work in a different way. I work with people on a range of issues, but find that I work with people with anxiety or depression most commonly, and pride myself on working hard to make people feel at ease.

Clients generally come to me when they are struggling with some aspect of their emotions, thoughts or behaviour. My aim is to help my client with accepting or changing some aspect of these three areas. Every client comes with unique issues and from my seat I view the issues as one, "a block in the road to wellness". I am keenly aware that all clients come with individual goals and I am here to help. Many of my clients use the phrase “I just want to feel better". This is my hope for everyone who engages with me in therapy. “TO FEEL BETTER” I offer confidentiality, openness and transparency at all times.
