Are you experiencing repeating patterns of thoughts, feelings and behaviour? Are you looking to introduce change into your life?
Beginning therapy can be a tough decision to make. My qualified and professional service gives you one less thing to worry about.
Our first meeting is given over to reflecting on what brings you to therapy, the issues or themes you are wanting to address.
During our meeting a fuller picture will emerge and you may also become aware of other things that were not previously on your mind. I will be able to provide you with a professional evaluation of how therapy can support change in your life
I am an experienced counsellor and psychotherapist, qualifying in 2010 after spending 20 years working as an Art Historian, occupying increasingly senior positions within a UK university and collaborating with artists David Hockney and Peter Greenaway.
Time for change? I can usually offer an appointment within seven days. Contact me for a qualified, professional and supportive service.
Training, qualifications & experience
In 2010 I took over the running of 'Therapy in Manchester,' a counselling and psychotherapy service in the centre of Chorlton.
I play an active role in the region’s network of therapists - for example, I chair the North West Regional Psychotherapy Association (nwrpa.org.uk) and organise talks and workshops every month.
I also provide training in therapy and supervise the practice of counsellors and psychotherapists.
I am an Associate of the School of the Freudian Letter (freudianletter.org) and member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (bacp.co.uk).
Before qualifying as a therapist in 2010 I was an Art Historian for nearly 20 years, holding increasingly senior positions within a UK university. I enjoyed a 10-year working relationship with artists David Hockney and Peter Greenaway, organising exhibitions of their work, writing essays and books.
