About this Service
Hello and welcome. I am an experienced BACP registered Counsellor and CBT Therapist. I have been working with clients for seven years and am an approved therapist for several health insurance providers.
I provide face to face therapy from my practice in South Manchester. I work with adults suffering with anxiety related issues, bereavement, depression, low self-esteem, relationship issues, stress, and major life transitions. I also provide couples counselling.
Deciding to have therapy is an extremely important and courageous decision. My role is to support you by giving you a safe, confidential and non-judgmental space within which you can explore what’s troubling you.
This space is built on trust. It is essential that you feel accepted, validated and understood. These values are pivotal to my therapy work.
I typically work within a person-centred framework and have the benefit of additional training to use Cognitive Behavioural Therapy should this approach feel more appropriate.
I believe that every person has the innate capacity to move beyond their difficulties and flourish.

I hold a PG Diploma in CBT, awarded from the University of Salford with distinction, a BACP Accredited Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling (Level Five) and a Certicficate in Couples and Relationship Counselling.
Wih seven years clinical experience, I have worked for a number of mental health organisations within the North West and have also worked for several NHS trusts in both primary and secondary care.
I enjoy working privately as it gives me the opportunity to focus on the individual needs of my clients rather than those of a larger organisation.
Because you need to feel confident that I am the right therapist for you, I offer all new clients a FREE 15 minute telephone consultation to ask any questions before you schedule an initial face to face consultation.
Your emotional distress can be greatly reduced with professional support.
As an ethical practioner who places the therapeutic relationship at the heart of my work, I will give you:
• Space to talk
• Space to breathe
• Space to reflect
• Space to gain clarity
• Space to develop new coping strategies
• Space for you.
Please feel free to browse my website for further information or feel free to call me. I am always happy to talk when I am available.
