About me

Originally from Cork, Ireland, I now practice as a counsellor/psychotherapist at Didsbury Counselling and Therapy Centre. Helping my clients feel safe is of paramount importance to me as I am aware that for many coming to therapy is a new experience which you may find daunting. I will try my best to make you feel at ease and if you have any questions about the therapeutic process feel free to email me or ring me to discuss.

As a counsellor/psychotherapist I have worked with a range of issues including anxiety, depression, sexuality, self-esteem, relationship difficulties, loneliness, search for meaning in life, stress, and confidence issues.

I've benefited from the fruits of my own personal psychotherapy when many years ago I sought personal psychotherapy when I went through a personal crisis.

You may have a specific problem or issue which you need help and support with, you may feel somewhat "stuck" and unsure or just need to talk. At the initial consultation appointment you can discuss what it is that brings you to therapy; I can answer any specific questions you may have about the process and will explain more about my approach to us working together.

Alongside my work as a psychotherapist I also work part time as an Independent Reviewing Officer where I advocate, support and review arrangements for children and young people in care.
