I am a Counsellor and Psychotherapist based in Chorlton, South Manchester, offering in-person, online and walk and talk sessions. You may be struggling with a specific issue or pattern of behaviour and know already what you would like to talk about. Alternatively, you may be feeling anxious or depressed and need support with processing your feelings and emotions. Counselling may be able to offer a fresh perspective, or support you to make changes needed to get you to a better place. I offer space to talk and discuss current and past events. I am very open minded, nonjudgmental and happy to talk about difficult or challenging issues

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.

Find your peace of mind. Workshop compassion (8 weeks to train your brain to be more compassionate). Life is not always easy. We can experiment difficulties, stressful events, and distressing or traumatic experiences. This can plunge us into questions, fears, stress, panic, or intense emotional distress and distance us from ourselves, our balance, and our general well-being. Being compassionate can help you to deal with the challenges of life and be more resilient.

It is entirely normal, in life, to feel confused, upset, anxious, unsure or challenged; these are all feelings that show that we are human. I provide you with the tools to use if life feels overwhelming, or when you want to make further improvements or understand yourself better. Psychotherapy is for anyone and everyone and is as normal a part of self-care as exercise or getting a haircut. It is an opportunity to do what is essential but that too often is overlooked: allowing ourselves the space to understand ourselves better. Seeking support through psychotherapy can help to deepen self-awareness around life’s tensions.

X I am not currently accepting new clients X Are you struggling with anxiety due to loss, relationships, work or coming to terms with episodes from your past? Maybe you want to explore why you behave, think or feel as you do, which can lead to positive change or self-acceptance. Have you kept worries to yourself for a while, not sleeping and not sharing how you really feel because you’re frightened that people won’t understand or that you’ll be a burden?

People come for therapy for many different issues. A common theme is that people want to get a greater sense of themselves and understanding of what may have caused their issues and how they might grow past these challenges. Therapy can help you feel better about yourself and improve your mental health.

So many of us feel the need to wear a mask day to day, unable to express our true feelings or show who we really are. I understand how difficult it can be to make the first step in asking for support, with this in mind I can provide a safe, confidential and non-judgemental environment in which you can be fully open and honest.

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.

You might find yourself here because you are dealing with an issue that feels overwhelming or you might want to take some time and space to talk about something that has been bothering you for a while. Counselling offers a safe, non-judgemental and confidential space to explore things. Counselling works, not by fixing people, but by supporting you through your own truths and aiding you to trust and understand yourself. It is an entirely safe space where you can truly be listened to and understood without any judgement by someone not involved in your every day life.

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.

You may be feeling stuck, or overwhelmed by your thoughts and feelings. You may be struggling with past experiences or what’s going on for you now. Maybe you’re figuring out what’s important to you right now and how you’d like your life to be. Your relationships with friends and loved ones may be tricky or unsatisfying. Perhaps you're finding yourself in familiar situations time and again and would like things to be different but you’re not sure how to make it happen. Whatever your unique reasons are for looking for a therapist, I imagine you’ve already been trying hard to figure things out on your own.
