There is a wide variety of reasons why you might be looking for a psychotherapist, but perhaps everyone wants to change ingrained states of mind, and to live in a rewarding and productive way. It's difficult, but the aim of analytic work is to get to grips with persistent problems. It holds out the hope of finding new decisiveness and flexibility in living.

I am a qualified person-centred counsellor and psychotherapist based in Manchester and offering online counselling to the UK. My approach is warm and friendly and I work with care and compassion. I offer a safe space, free from judgement, where you can be yourself and explore any issues that may be causing you confusion, discomfort or distress. You will decide what we talk about and we will always work at a pace that is comfortable for you. It is important, to me, that you feel at ease working with me, so I offer a free first session (50 minutes), so you can see how I work and decide whether you wish to continue.

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.

Having several years' experience working with both children, young people and adults, I can offer support to a wide age range from 13+. Reaching out for support can be incredibly overwhelming and scary. It’s very important to me to try and make this as simple and accessible as possible. I qualified as a counsellor in 2019 and have worked within mental health for over 5 years, in the charity and voluntary sector. Removing barriers to counselling support is very close to my heart and I pride myself on being a down to earth practitioner.

Are you an LGBTQ+ person and looking to gain some clarity in life? Are you struggling with your romantic relationships or trying to make sense of your past? You might find that you feel isolated, alone and are missing out on connections with loved ones. These difficult feelings can cloud the parts of your life which should bring you joy; this unhappiness can lead to further disconnect with those around us.

I have extensive therapy experiences in supporting a wide range of challenges and all walks of life. I strive to work with you in a way which ensures that you can completely be 'just you'. You can be comfortable to bring any difficulties and unspoken thoughts and feelings to me, and we together find out 'the why' in your life, relationships and in you. We recognize it is not easy; I devote to building our trust and that you can develop your own voice and resilience. We walk together to put listening and understanding first, before taking changes which are manageable, realistic and sustainable.

Lets be honest, finding the right counsellor can feel very daunting, especially with so many profiles to read so I'll try to keep it simple. I provide a confidential, non-judgmental, safe space where you can feel comfortable opening up about your inner most thoughts and feelings. We can explore things like your relationships, your history and childhood, bereavements, the impact of the pandemic on you or anything that you feel you need to gain clarity on or offload. The sessions are yours to use however you feel is needed and I will be there to support and encourage you on your journey. It's an hour to focus on you!

Life is difficult. Every day you face a thousand intangible threats to your mental well-being and self-esteem. Your brain reacts, creating a collection of sensations which we call anxiety. Sometimes you feel hopeless-there's no way out of trouble and you feel yourself becoming more withdrawn, isolated and depressed. Or, perhaps living with the person you love is impossible. Talking things over with family or friends can help. But you may have reasons why that's not appropriate or you need specific specialist help. Then is the time to speak with an impartial, trained, professional, in confidence.

I generally work with individuals but also offer LGBTQIA+ friendly couples/relationship counselling as this can be a difficult to access service.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, psychologist, or counsellor, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counsellor in M1?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Psychologists in M1 specialise in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others. Finding a psychologist or counsellor who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

Can I afford counselling?
Yes. Most counsellors offer reasonable rates or will work on a sliding scale basis. Many accept health insurance. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the counsellor.
