I have a keen interest in working with issues relating to self-esteem and shame. Overthinking, constantly comparing yourself to others, people-pleasing, and holding high expectations for yourself that are impossible to achieve (perfectionism), to name a few, can all be symptoms of low self-esteem. These beliefs and behaviours can cause difficulties in your relationship with others and most importantly, yourself. It can feel impossible to break the cycle or know how to move forward. I can support you to make sense of your experiences so that you might develop self-worth and find a way through that works for you.

I have been working as a Counsellor for 9 years and have had experience working with a variety of different issues. I love to engage with people from all walks of life and understand that therapy can be a daunting prospect, so I try to create a warm and welcoming environment where you feel safe to share your story. If you are looking for somebody who can help you understand where your struggles come from, as well as help you to develop tools to manage you current feelings and behaviours, then we would work well together. If you have a Christian faith and wish to bring this into the therapy room, then you can feel safe doing so.

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.

Do you struggle with anxiety, imposter syndrome or low mood? Comparing yourself negatively to others, fearing rejection if you are your authentic self, or make a mistake. You may have always felt this way, stemming from painful experiences in your past. Or has something happened more recently that has changed your sense of self? Maybe you are starting to identify as ADHD, AuDHD or ASC, and you're trying to make sense of your life story from this new perspective. Therapy is a safe and supportive space to explore your difficulties at your pace, develop new strategies, regain confidence whilst reconnecting with what you value and enjoy

Life is full of ups and downs and sometimes we can struggle making sense of everything. These feelings may become overwhelming and difficult to endure. Asking for help is OK. Counselling could be the help you need. Unlike talking to friends or family, speaking with an impartial skilled and caring professional can help alleviate feelings and develop your ability to mange and feel more in control. I am a BACP qualified counsellor working in a person-centred way. This means I offer a warm, supportive and nurturing environment where I will listen without judgement and prejudice to whatever feels most significant to you.

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.

As a Creative Arts Psychotherapist & Somatic Breathworker, I offer a safe supportive confidential trauma-informed space to move beyond the limitations of the mind & relying on words. Whether you feel stressed, anxious, overwhelmed, lost, low, stuck or creatively blocked, talking things through may help, but to truly change what is showing up and holding you back from how you want to feel and who you know you can be, we need to work in a creative embodied way beyond words. With our human experience of exposure to stress and trauma living in the body, our subconscious thoughts are fed from a place of fear, activation, and survival.

Hi I am a person centred counsellor, and clinical supervisor based in South Manchester. I believe the first step to therapy can be the most difficult yet courageous, there are times when we could use some space to talk about and process what we are feeling and explore life issues. Allowing yourself permission to reach out and talk to someone can be half the battle. I offer a warm, non-judgemental safe space allowing you to be yourself and be met where you are at with compassion and acceptance.

I am a clinical psychologist specialising in perinatal and parent infant mental health. My focus is supporting parents during pregnancy and the early years of their child's life. Becoming a parent is often the biggest transition of our lives and many parents find it is not what they expected it to be. In therapy we can work together to make sense of this experience, which can help you to overcome difficulties and move forward. I also offer supervision to health professionals working in perinatal and parent infant services (including psychologists, midwives and health visitors).

It is very human to have psychological difficulties at various points in our lives. Difficult things can happen to us leaving us feeling scared and/ or low/ depressed. Society can also make us feel pressurised to look a certain way and we can feel pretty worthless if don't believe that we conform to these societal expectations. All of these can be both frightening and overwhelming, which makes it so important to have a calm, compassionate and skilful therapist to guide you towards recovery.
