About me

I am a highly experienced BACP Registered Accredited Counsellor and Reiki Therapist based in Manchester UK. I offer confidential counselling for many issues and work with adults, young people, couples and small groups. My aim is to help you to explore your concerns and to find ways forward that are right for you. Prompt appointments.

Issues I can help with include:

Abuse, anxiety, bereavement, couples counselling, cultural, depression, disability, health, relationships, self-esteem, sexuality, spirituality, stress, work and other concerns.

Counselling & how I can help

As a counsellor, my aim is to facilitate and support you in a safe and confidential environment to explore the issues you choose to talk about without being rushed or judged and help you to find your own way forward.

My counselling approach is person-centred. This is based on a fundamental belief that people can heal in a favourable environment, provided through a supportive therapeutic relationship.
Creative/art therapy is also available.

Therapy sessions usually last 1 hour and are offered weekly, but this can be varied depending on your need and my availability. You can have as many or as few sessions as you feel you need.

I am happy to offer a free initial phone consultation before you book an appointment, to help you to assess if what I offer feels right for you. If you would like to contact me, I look forward to hearing from you.

Other therapies offered: I am also a Reiki Master and offer Reiki therapy.
