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.

Hello, I'm a qualified counsellor and psychotherapist based in Fallowfield, 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.

Sometimes life experiences can become overwhelming and feel too much to cope with. This can lead to us to feeling worthless, vulnerable and isolated. Sometimes we need somebody who will listen to us without judgement to help us work through things to lead to a better understanding of ourselves and our experiences and sometimes just hold our hand whilst we sit in that darkness.

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.

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.
