About me

*****I offer a free initial telephone consultation: Available 9am to 9pm Mon-Sat******


Hello, I'm Keith, an Anxiety UK approved cognitive behavioural therapist and counsellor. I work on the Fylde coast near Blackpool and in Manchester City Centre where my clinic is just off Deansgate. I have significant experience working in NHS mental health and specialist service teams and also run clinics for private patients.

I tailor my approach to each client and primarily use cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) over 6-10 sessions, to help with issues such as panic attacks, anxiety and depression.  I actively work with clients to help them identify their issues and their goals for therapy and work at your pace to achieve them. My approach tends to be a little more challenging than some of my colleagues and I find that this works well for clients who are 'stuck' or who have been living with conditions for many years.

I particularly like to work with anxiety disorders, such as Panic Disorder and Social Anxiety, and specialise in working with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD). I have a good record of success in tackling what can be very challenging and life limiting conditions for clients.

I appreciate that most of us work during the day and lead busy lives.  I am happy to offer evening and weekend appointments to fit around your work and family requirements.

I have a therapy room local to me but am happy to travel and cover the following postcode areas: FY1-8.

I hold a clinic in Manchester City Centre on 1 day per week between 8.30am and 6pm.

Supervision & training

Having amassed a large number of hours in clinical practice and having supervised a number of clinical staff in my NHS role, I felt some formal training was in order to help develop my practice and I now hold a Certificate in Clinical Supervision.
