Have you been struggling with sexuality, LGBTQIA identity, gender expression, and gender identity-related issues? Gender dysphoria and sexuality aren't psychological issues, however, they can still cause a lot of psychological stress and anxiety to a person. Or have you been struggling to fit into your workplace, local communities, or your social circle? Or might even have been unfairly treated or discriminated against because of your ethnic minority/BAME background? Unable to express your true self, true identity along with living in a society where misunderstanding and stigma can easily be found could greatly affect you

As a person-centred counsellor, I will be led by your needs and we will work to create an understanding of what you are feeling and thinking. Concerns and issues often occur because we lose touch with the person we truly are due to circumstances or the expectations of others. Our needs, hopes and dreams can fall by the wayside for reasons individual to the person. Our sessions will allow you time to discover or rediscover who you truly are as a person and what you want or need to feel whole. There are times I may suggest we look at something specifically or try an exercise, drawing on my experience in coaching.

Taking the first step to meet a therapist may feel daunting, yet it can be so rewarding by helping you learn about yourself and what has brought you here. Therapy is a vital component in an individual’s growth and self-awareness. Many people seek therapy for several reasons, whether it be anxiety, bereavement, trauma, stress and many other reasons that can be explored and worked through, with someone beside you, supporting you. It is your space and time, that can be used exploring whatever you wish to bring. My hope is to be someone you can reveal your true self to, without feeling judged, but to feel heard, understood and accepted.

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 12 step fellowships particularly those looking at family dysfunction.

Do you feel ripped apart and shaken to your core? You don't want to be a burden to friends and can't talk to family, it is all so overwhelming. The deepest pit of despair and hurt, mixed emotions, anguish, anger, confusion, barely coping with intense non-stop life changes. Loss of family, partner or treasured friends, sudden or chronic terminal illness, loss of the person you used to be, ageing, guilty lifestyle, fear of a new job and moving, or the prickling heartache from loss of your pet. You don’t even have the strength to take the next step, to pull yourself through while trying to reach your old self. You need a safe space.

I believe that people shouldn’t have to deal with their problems on their own. My life’s journey has been far from straight forward and that allows me to examine how the (often) invisible pressures and restrictive boxes/categories of society can stop people expressing themselves in ways that make them feel happy and fulfilled. By combining my counselling training with my life experience, I have created a safe, relaxed and private setting where clients can get to know themselves better and work through their thoughts, feelings and emotions without judgement.

I have over 19 years experience working with people - My clients come to me, when they feel overwhelmed, exhausted and in need of support - they can't manage their thoughts, relationships, behaviours alone any longer and they need someone to talk to in a confidential, non-judgmental way. Together we explore, unpick, understand and make changes, so that life can become more manageable, enjoyable and less exhausting. For me, each of my clients are individuals, and its about getting the right balance - seeing what works and what doesn't work for them, promoting change together.

Are you feeling overwhelmed? Have things become too much for you to work out on your own? Counselling could provide the space you need to talk, and be listened to, to help relieve your distress – and maybe bring new hope to your life. If you come and see me, we will work together to identify, understand and explore the challenges in your life as you see them, and find solutions that make sense to you. You are the expert on your life, not me. My role is not to ‘fix’ or advise you, but to help you see more clearly what is causing your suffering in order for you to grow and develop with increased peace of mind and confidence.

I like to describe the process of therapy to clients as the unpacking and re-packing of a messy suitcase. There may be things in there that have been actively avoided and possibly some things that have been forgotten about altogether. Through gentle and curious exploration, the suitcase is opened; things are taken out and safely examined. Coming face to face with that which has caused pain can be frightening but it needn't be done alone. The re-packing of the suitcase allows for the healing and acceptance of that which has been pushed away from the mind but is still stored in the body. Things will start to feel lighter and clearer.

If you're transgender or are looking for help with transgender issues in Manchester or for a Manchester transgender counsellor these professionals provide transgender counselling and transgender friendly care.
