Starting therapy can be daunting. As a queer , non-binary, neurodivergent therapist, it is my aim to hold a space for affirming therapy for all. I have supported people with relationship challenges, people wanting to build and explore relationships with themselves and those looking back at their past and how it could be affecting them today (sometimes presenting as anxiety or depression). I am open to a fun and creative approach to talking therapy built on the relationship between myself and my client. I use relational TA and also have experience of 12step fellowships particularly looking at family dysfunction. I work term time only

Throughout my clinical and research career, I've been interested in identity, attachment, and trauma, primarily in LGBTQIA + communities.
I work with a wide range of clients, however, most clients reach out to me when they are looking to work around relationships, low mood or anxiety, and difficulties in adjusting to change. Overall, my aim is to help my clients gain insight into their struggles and find different ways of thinking, behaving, and feeling about life and their circumstances. Change can sometimes be a painful and scary process, but working with someone willing to walk alongside you and help you develop the skills to manage the process can certainly make the therapeutic journey a pleasant and enjoyable one.

I am a Counsellor and Psychotherapist based in Manchester City Centre, offering both in person and online 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 simply be feeling down and low 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 work with clients from all backgrounds but have particular experience working with men and with LGBT + issues.

​Being apart of the LGBTQ community, it is my passion to support people with gender identity, coming to terms with sexuality, judgment from others and coming to terms with a diagnosis of HIV.
We can all have times in our lives when we find things tough, we can feel overwhelmed and struggle to cope or we may feel dissatisfied with our lives. This is how counselling can help. ​ I offer a safe space where you can talk openly and privately about your problems, feelings and behaviours. We can build a therapeutic relationship based on trust and respect. It is a non judgmental space for you to speak about issues you face, that you may not feel comfortable to discuss with friends or family.

I am an LGBTQ + therapist supporting individuals, couples and groups of all ages, sexuality and identity to explore their issues. Whether you are coming to therapy to make a change, make sense of yourself or past experiences, or simply want someone to listen to you, I provide a safe, confidential, and non-judgemental space for you to explore your life, relationships and concerns. Whatever your goals, I will guide you through the process and together we will try to understand any repetitive patterns of unfulfilling behaviour and gain insight into how past experiences have come to shape present-day experiences.

My specialism lies in working with issues realted to being LGBTQ .
Counselling can be an exciting and challenging journey, dealing with what's happening right now or looking at those important moments from your past. I will support you on this journey to understand yourself better, giving you the potential to grow and develop self-awareness. You and I will look at how you think, feel and behave, which can give you focus on which parts of yourself you want to develop, and which parts you can use to support the work you do. This is very important and useful on the counselling journey. You will have the space and time, to work through and develop your understanding of yourself, to feel more at ease.

I am part of the LGBT + community and identify as cis gay man using he/him pronouns.
I believe that human wellness is multidimensional. No singular event, element or experience of living can truly cause wellness or suffering. It’s a complex interplay between various factors which make up our experience of life. With this in mind, there can be no singular therapy and counselling service that can heal all. There can be no singular psychological approach which is capable of explaining the complexity of the human experience. This is why my approach is integrative and holistic, with a collaborative style that pulls in ideas from various models and ideologies.

These experiences provides me with a deeper understanding of the complexity of mental health, mental illness and our capacity, as human beings, to grow and make meaning of our lives. We all go through personal struggles and some of us get lost in our painful thoughts and emotions which at times, manifest in anxiety and depression and counselling/psychotherapy is a space to support you find your way back and develop a better version of YOU.

I believe your therapy should be as unique as you and focus on providing informed support for LGBTQIA + clients, adult children (ACA/ACOA) and anyone who feels they struggle to 'fit in'.
Welcome! Thanks for visiting my profile. Pull up a seat, get comfortable, and lets really talk about what matters to you. There could be a million reasons why you're here....maybe you’ve been trying to hold it all together and feel tired or overwhelmed? Do you sometimes wish there was a manual for navigating relationships or conflict? Perhaps you want to feel better about yourself but don’t know where to start. When your brain is constantly chattering and the to-do list is never-ending, it can feel impossible to find space to hear yourself and consider what's really important.

I have also always had a special interest in working with the LGBTQ + community.
It's good to talk, but it’s better to be listened to. Carving out the space to focus on ourselves has never been more challenging. Psychotherapy is the chance to do exactly that, a place to build a relationship to safely explore where you are at and where you want to be. I am dedicated to helping my clients find ways forward that feel positive. I aim to support people in making decisions and to explore new possibilities where sometimes we find ourselves stuck in the same old patterns. I aim to instil confidence and help manage feelings of anxiety or low mood and to imagine a new way forward.

My own experiences of discrimination as a Queer person has shaped my trauma-informed practice.
Do you feel like you live in a world that doesn’t accept who you are? A dear friend of mine once summed up this feeling beautifully: “Being LGBTIQ+ is not my issue, it’s living in a world where others take issue with me being LGBTIQ+”. When we live in a society that does not see or respect our difference we internalize a lot of messages and beliefs about who we should, or should not, be. Trying to shape ourselves into an image that doesn’t fit isn’t just exhausting - it’s traumatizing! Hi, my name is Gavin and I identify as a gender non-conforming Queer person.

My background is providing counselling to LGBTQ + & questioning people in a community charity setting, and I know of the barriers people can face when trying to access help for mental health.
I offer long and short term therapy with a specialism in working with members of the LGBTQ + community. I have a strong belief that people should be able to define life on their own terms and find their own meaning. I am interested in helping clients examine what can get in the way of that, whether it is personal history, external pressures, feelings of shame, or expectations of what is and isn’t normal. I work with the person rather than with any diagnosis believing that we all are doing the best we can within the environment and resources available and I want to help you discover what is important to you.

I welcome exploring all issues of identity and difference and offer an understanding LGBTQIA + friendly space.
It’s not unusual to feel unsettled and lost in uncertain times. Sometimes troubled relationships at home or work or from the past can bring low or anxious feelings that may prompt you to step back and ask yourself who you really are and what is the way forward. As an Existential Psychotherapist I can be with you to explore how is it for you to be you right now in the world in which you find yourself. What possibilities are open to you? What are your anxious feelings really telling you? How can you be OK with the feelings and situations that make you uncomfortable, or not knowing what the future holds?

My experience working with a wide variety of psychological presentations, including bereavement, LGBTQIA +, depression, anxiety, and many others, has helped me build my skills.
I am Neil, a professional counsellor who can help you move forward. You will be able to explore anxiety, depression, abuse, childhood trauma, and other significant issues with our partnership. Despite being hidden, these issues have a significant impact on us. Understanding these hidden issues can be challenging. If you have a trustworthy, empathic, and accepting counsellor, counselling can help you cope with your challenges. If you aren't sure about taking that first step, we offer a free 30-minute consultation. It can be done via video link, phone call, or email, however you feel most comfortable
