I have worked as a trauma therapist in sexual assault and i am trained in EMDR AND BRAINSPOTTING and CBT and DBT.
I have worked as a Therapist, Supervisor, Trainer for twenty two years and I am as passionate now as i was 22 yrs ago. I believe that the therapeutic relationship is the most important aspect of therapy. To provide a space where you feel safe, respected and never judged. I am an trained in various therapies including cbt therapy. Sometimes life throws us a curve ball and getting up everyday and doing everyday things is a struggle sometimes we need someone to walk through the dark times with us and to remind us we are not alone and things can and will get better. I have recently wrote a book on narcissistic relationships.

I work in a trauma-informed manner and have specific experience and training in sexual abuse/trauma.
Has a recent or past negative experience left you feeling lost or stuck? Maybe you’ve tried to just get on with life but inside you still feel broken, replaying events in your mind and asking yourself why or how this happened. Perhaps you know what happened to you was traumatic or maybe you’ve told yourself it “wasn’t that bad”. Some days you seem to feel all the emotions all at once, and other days you feel nothing at all. Other people simply don’t understand, leaving you feeling alone and like you don’t matter. Most things in your life, your relationships, work or education might be affected and you long to break free from it all.

I have trained & worked with suicidal clients and also did specialist training in Sexual abuse victim support, trauma and hold a post grad level 7 in attachment.
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.

Do you feel... Held back by the burden of past trauma and abuse that have you stuck in a life of feeling like you’re constantly on high alert and dream of running away? Disconnected from yourself, your body, and your emotions leaving you feeling uncertain about what you want or need? Suffocated by a prism of pain, secrecy and shame desperately afraid that someone may find out the secrets you’ve kept locked and hidden deep inside? A paralysing fear of being judged, seen and heard with the traumatic memories of the abuse that speaking up created, still loud and present in your being? Powerless and lacking a sense of control?

I think sometimes we just reach that place in life when we say 'enough is enough'. For some it can mean it is time to stop and face something, and to someone else it can mean it is maybe time to 'let it go'. There's no end to the potential meanings for reaching 'that point'. i think we've all been there at some stage or another. Does this sound familiar ? That's okay, i totally understand where you're coming from. What is important is acknowledging that you have had the energy and motivation to seek someone to support you through this - it takes courage and strength to take this step. Well done!

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.

Our past and present are intimately linked by our memories. Our memories are heavily influenced and based on feelings we had surrounding an event or experience. These experiences may be impacting your life right now, even the ones that might seem irrelevant or insignificant. If we don't become aware of this connection it will keep affecting our future, which over time can cause us stress. Prolonged stress can manifest itself in physical forms, including illness, lack of energy, problems with sleep, headaches, depression and anxiety. When you are mentally healthy you are able to handle life's challenges.

There is no one way of living, and we will all find ourselves faced with challenges along the way. Sometimes, the help of an outside source can enable us to view things in a different light or explore in more depth, which is where counselling can be beneficial. I believe no two people are ever the same, so how can a counselling approach be? For that reason, my work is predominantly non-directive as I believe you are the expert of yourself, so the approach to therapy should be whatever feels right for you.

Sexual Abuse Counsellors
Child sexual abuse is the deliberate exposure of a minor child to sexual activity that the child cannot comprehend or consent to. This means a child is forced or talked into sex or sexual activities by another person. This behaviour includes acts such as inappropriate touching of a child's breasts or genitalia, someone exposing their genitalia to a child, fondling, oral-genital contact, genital and anal intercourse, as well as exhibitionism, voyeurism, and exposure to pornography.

If you're looking for a counsellor that has treated clients who've experienced sexual abuse in Manchester or for Manchester sexual abuse counselling, these professionals provide confidential support for individuals in an abusive relationship. They include sexual abuse counsellors, sexual abuse psychologists and sexual abuse therapists. Counsellors can help with child abuse in Manchester and sexual violence in Manchester. An Manchester counsellor can identify the signs and causes of sexual abuse, discuss intervention and refer victims to shelters.
