About me

I am an experienced counsellor/psychotherapist and have been working for many years in a number of different settings, including private practice, NHS Primary Care, women's domestic violence support, and counselling young people and students.

In those years I have helped many men and women from all ages and backgrounds experiencing difficulties with bereavement, relationship and family problems, anxiety, depression and low self-esteem. I have also helped clients with behavioural concerns such as substance abuse, phobias, self-harm and deeper concerns resulting from past and present neglect and abuse.

I offer an individually tailored mixture of person-centred therapy , compassion focused therapy and mindfulness based therapy, to help my clients gain a better understanding of themselves, feel more empowered and resourceful, gain more control over their unwanted behaviours and lead happier lives

I believe that all people have the potential to live full and happy lives but from time to time we become held back or overwhelmed by our life experiences. Hopefully, working together in an empathic and non-judgemental way, I can help you overcome these difficulties and find a way forward.

My offices are conveniently located on Piccadilly Gardens in central Manchester, close to cafes, shops, train and Metrolink . The office is easily accessible, but secluded and quiet, and provides a safe and confidential environment where we can discuss your difficulties.

I offer daytime, evening and weekend sessions. I am also happy to work on-line using Skype and I offer a free initial consultation
