I am a BACP-qualified person-centred counsellor based in South Manchester offering confidential, face to face sessions to support and nurture you through challenging times. 

In life, we face many difficult challenges and painful situations, which we can often find hard to talk about with family or friends. 

Deciding to reach out and seek counselling can be a difficult decision - but if you choose to, it is a really valuable space which might not exist in your everyday life. You will be listened to, heard and valued – often, many clients say, for the first time.  You will gain insight and become empowered to look at things in different ways.  Ultimately you will encounter healing and transformational change to enable you to live a more fulfilled and authentic life.

I am passionate about the person-centred counselling approach and its holistic nature. Put simply, you are not seen as a ‘patient’ being treated by an ‘expert.’ Instead you are a client and we are viewed as equal. I treat each client as an individual - you lead the sessions and each session is taken at your own pace.

I believe the relationship between you as the client and me as the therapist is at the heart of all therapy work.  Our relationship is built on trust, which is earned by myself from you, and it ultimately facilitates your healing process.  For this reason, it's important that you find a counsellor who is right for you.

That is why I offer an initial 30-minute meeting or call free of charge for you to find out more and ask any questions you may have.  There is absolutely no obligation whatsoever as I understand it is a very personal decision.

It’s OK not to be OK and you don’t have to suffer alone.

I am a BACP registered, experienced Integrative counsellor.  I have experience of working with person centred counselling, cognitive behavioural counselling, Transactional analysis and psychotherapy.

I believe counselling is about change, both in our inner and outer worlds, counselling can help us find peace and happiness, support us to leave or change unhealthy situations, sometimes counselling can simply help us accept our reality. Counselling can support you to achieve your goals and understand yourself better, it can be a place where you can begin to communicate the things it is hard to say.

I provide a safe and supportive space for you to do this sometimes-difficult work. A calm and peaceful space for you to explore your self and your life, to begin to get to know yourself better, to become more conscious. Everyone is different and I adapt my approach to meet your individual needs, we keep this under review during our work together. I aim to help you see your situation from a different perspective, to recognise where your power is, to enable you to see potential and choices rather than limitations. Counselling is an active process, one that can literally change your life.

I have been working with people in different settings for many years and use all this experience to support our work together.

If this has resonance for you, maybe counselling would be a way forward.
