About me

I offer city centre counselling for depression, anxiety and trauma, whatever the cause.

I am also qualified and experienced in working with couples whether staying together or splitting up.

And in working with children/young people aged 5 - 17.

I work on in Manchester M3 and also in Altrincham WA15.

Counselling is available daytime & evening.

I welcome people of all races, cultures, ages and sexual orientation.

You can pay using card, cash or cheque at the end of each session. Or by direct bank transfer before sessions.

I use firstly an integrative approach based on a Person Centred core and drawing on Psychodynamic and Systemic theories and on Transactional Analysis (TA). This means that I can help you to explore and understand your feelings without judging you, which in turn helps you to trust yourself to make changes for the better.

I also use Play Therapy which is a special way of allowing children and adults to express difficult emotions without directly thinking and talking about distressing experiences.
