About me

Are you looking for a professional, friendly and compassionate counsellor?


At times in our lives we all struggle with difficult situations and emotions. Life’s troubles, past or present, can sometimes get in the way. I support people to find the ways that are right for them to move forward or to find peace. Together we work through what you choose to bring to counselling at a pace that suits you. It is my aim to provide a safe, warm and confidential service to all my clients.

I offer both long and short term therapy with adults and young people (18+).

  • 1 hour sessions are £50
  • 90 min sessions are £70

BeWell does not offer free counselling but I am happy to discuss reduced fees for those who are unwaged, students or on a state pension.

I am a qualified Person-Centred Counsellor. My approach is to identify what would be of particular therapeutic benefit to you and integrate this into our sessions. I have a sense of humour and am creative, which is reflected in how I work. We work together; side by side and step by step.

I am an Accredited Registered Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and work in accordance with its Ethical Framework. I am fully insured.

How to get started

When you contact me I will respond to you by the same means, usually within the same day. We can then arrange to speak with one another at a convenient and private time. This is usually about a 20 minute chat which is obligation free.

If you decide to go ahead, we can set up a day and time for an initial session where we can talk about what you would like to get out of counselling.  If you are then happy to continue, I will set up a second session and we can arrange meet weekly or fortnightly.

If you would like a no obligation chat at a time to suit you, then please contact me by email or call
07873 134 069.

Training, qualifications & experience

MBACP (Acc), Diploma and Fdsc Person-Centred Counselling, BSc (Hons) Professional Healthcare, AngerUK Certified.

My private practice is at Piccadilly House in central Manchester. I also work as a counsellor for local organisations.

My experience working within healthcare and the NHS helps me to understand how the mind and body work together and what happens in health and illness. Initially I worked as a Registered General Nurse and later as a Counsellor within GP practices.Clients experienced a wide range of issues which included: bereavement, loss and grief, anxiety, panic, stress, depression, mood swings, relationship difficulties, self-harm, addictions, physical and life limiting illness, low self-esteem, identity, sexuality, abuse, trauma, feelings of being overwhelmed, loneliness, anger and sadness.

Additionally, I have experience working with trauma, sexual abuse and rape at the West Mercia Rape and Sexual Abuse Support Centre. Many of my clients expressed feelings of stigmatization, powerlessness, guilt and shame and had built up coping mechanisms in order to survive that were no longer helpful.

Further training includes trauma and dissociation, rape and sexual abuse, lifestyle coaching, mindfulness for wellbeing, bereavement support, alcohol and drug awareness, developing creative interventions, domestic abuse, eating disorders, self-harm, anger management and positive change. I also am able to provide the Employee Assistance Programme (EAP) service, which relates to stress in the work place.
