If you are experiencing a recent bereavement, mental health crisis, behaviour change, addiction, relationship issue or uncertainty surrounding your identity I can help you gain a greater perspective through exploration and deep reflection into your self. It is expected of me to demonstrate empathy, congruence and unconditional positive regard so that you feel safe to share those difficult thoughts, feelings and actions you are experiencing. I am currently only delivering sessions online via video or telephone, however I am happy to do walk and talk therapeutic sessions, outdoors in the South Manchester Area.

Hello, I'm Kevan. You may have arrived here because something isn't working for you, and you want to find a resolution to some difficulty, or personal challenge. It may be to do with present day stress, or uncertainty about what the future will hold, or feeling stuck due to old patterns of feeling from the past. Whatever the issue, my aim is to help you find clarity, to untangle the knots of anxiety, worry and distress, and to find a way forward.

I help people with chronic pain and illness to experience a better quality of life in a holistic way. This may involve exploring and working with related root issues, beliefs, perceptions, physical sensations, present or past experiences, emotions, lifestyle and unconscious blocks to wellbeing, freeing up more of your energy and enabling a deeper connection with yourself, others and life. I also help people overcome stress, anxieties and/or trauma related to medical procedures (including pregnancy/adverse birth experiences), whether they are fears or phobias without a known cause, or due to previous difficult experiences.

At this point in your life when you are looking for therapy, you may have a hunch that the burden you carry has grown too much to hold on your own and somebody needs to hear you out. Many conversations heal, but the difference between a psychologist and a friend is that looking at things with the tools and theories we have at our disposal can help you define the problem, perhaps reframe it and then resolve it. That is the starting point for feeling better. You may wonder whether anything can really help, because everything may seem complicated and deep, but the wonder of your own self is waiting for you to unfold.

As, primarily, a Person-Centred therapist, I understand that each person and counselling relationship is unique. With presence and genuineness, I strive to attune to each individual, wherever they may be in that moment. My professional training and experience serves to support and illuminate the journey we embark on, side by side, and enables me to respond with sensitivity to you as a whole person. Person-Centred Therapy trusts that each person innately possesses the capacity for fulfilment and authenticity when met with the safe yet challenging environment in which to explore and grow.

Life is difficult. Every day you face a thousand intangible threats to your mental well-being and self-esteem. Your brain reacts, creating a collection of sensations which we call anxiety. Sometimes you feel hopeless-there's no way out of trouble and you feel yourself becoming more withdrawn, isolated and depressed. Or, perhaps living with the person you love is impossible. Talking things over with family or friends can help. But you may have reasons why that's not appropriate or you need specific specialist help. Then is the time to speak with an impartial, trained, professional, in confidence.

I am a qualified psychotherapist, life coach, trainer and supervisor, with over 20 years experience in private practice. I work with adults who may be encountering life's stressors to a greater-than-usual degree or may be struggling to find their way forward in a diverse range of circumstances. These may be from personal or professional sources but usually involve our own, perhaps not very helpful, habitual ways of dealing with such difficulties - we all can revert to old habits in times of trouble. I am available to do both short- and long-term work according to need.

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.

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.

We humans are influenced by our life events, and they drive our emotional reactions. These events often render us helpless, lonely, and terrified. Sometimes it becomes difficult to express our true feelings and/or needs. Life turns out to be persistently sad, complicated, and filled with negative thoughts. It can happen to anyone, and it is an illness that can be treated. All we need is professional compassionate help to start living again.

“I feel like quite a different person! Dov has taught me to learn from myself what's important in life, who's important in life, and that I'm actually one of the most important people in life. I would say that the work has been tremendous! His time, the way in which he helps you to open up and really evaluate what's going on and also his so many years of his own experience passes over to you. So it oozes confidence for you to then feel that "I can also be like that myself", which has been really, really helpful for me. Amanda Marks, London

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.

People access therapy for many different reasons, but generally we are most likely to reach out for help when our usual coping strategies are no longer effective. At these times it is not always helpful to turn to family or friends, as their well-meaning support often fails to make us feel truly understood. As a therapist, I will not be directive in pushing forwards solutions, because I do not claim to know you better than you know yourself. My aim is to provide a safe and authentic relationship, where an exploration of the dynamics between us becomes a significant factor in the effectiveness of the therapy.
