Embark on a transformative journey with me. I offer both short and long-term support, drawing from research on childhood trauma and depression's impact on chronic illness. With specialised experience in neurological conditions, LGBTQ+ issues, and trauma, I offer genuine support, drawing from personal and professional insights. My approach fosters a genuine connection, creating a safe haven for exploration within a trauma-informed framework. I believe in the profound power of self-expression and acceptance, especially for those who find it challenging elsewhere.

I am a qualified person-centred counsellor, based in south Manchester. I specialise in person-centred counselling and cognitive behavioural therapy and offer both in person (walk and talk therapy and online sessions). I believe everyone should have the opportunity to feel listened too, accepted without fear of judgement and feel welcomed in a safe space. I have six years of experience working in mental clinical settings supporting individuals through addiction, eating disorders, psychosis, bipolar, PTSD and depression. My other passion is voluntary work supporting individuals with HIV/AIDS, fighting stigma.

Are you looking to gain some clarity in life? Are you struggling in relationships or trying to make sense of your past? Perhaps you feel isolated, angry and are missing out on connections with friends and family. This can suffocate the parts of your life which should bring you joy; this unhappiness can lead to further disconnect with those around you.

You’ve landed on this page for a reason. Maybe you’re tired from always putting others first but feel selfish for caring about yourself. Maybe you’re feeling too anxious to even be around other people and are spending a lot of time with your thoughts. Maybe you want to escape or block out your thoughts altogether because they feel too scary to be with.  Whatever the reason is, you know that something doesn’t feel right and you can’t carry on doing it alone.

Making the decision to reach out and admit that you need the help of someone else can be hard. Making the decision to attend counselling can be even harder. Partners, peers and family may not understand, you may feel like you've failed somehow, you may feel like you are not enough. We also know that this is far from the truth. Taking the step to attend counselling is often the first step on a journey that allows us to confront our difficulties, face our fears, become more self-aware and ultimately take a path that can lead to a better life.

As an experienced counsellor in my 40s, my approach is to get to know you as an individual and create a safe space where you can explore your thoughts, feelings and actions, free from any judgement. The counselling I provide is a solution focused talking therapy where my full attention, empathy, and respect for you will always be present. It will challenge you to think about how you can change any negative thoughts or patterns that are occurring, so you can live the life you want to lead in a healthier and more authentic way. I work with adults of all ages, genders, backgrounds and cultures.
