As a person-centred psychotherapist and counsellor with 14 years of counselling experience, I offer a secure, welcoming and confidential space in which you can be understood and valued, and where you can begin to find your own way towards how you want to be. I will help you to reflect upon and explore your challenges whilst offering an independent, non-judgemental perspective.
I work in a person-centred way with adults with a broad range of experiences including relationship issues, anxiety, depression, anger management, post-natal depression, generalised anxiety, family issues, addiction(s), separation/divorce, bereavement, eating disorders, abuse, low self-esteem, stress and low self-confidence. I support children using person-centred play therapy. I also offer counselling supervision (see supervision profile).
I practice from Manchester city centre in a location 2 minutes walk from Oxford Road train station and 15 minutes walk from Piccadilly station. I also practice from the town of Buxton in the Peak District National Park.
Outdoor Therapy Additionally I offer outdoor therapy in Hayfield (10 miles from Buxton, 5 miles from Glossop), at the heart of the Peak District / in the foothills of Kinder Scout.
Training, qualifications & experience
I trained at The Sherwood Institute in Nottingham and hold a Masters research degree in Humanistic Person-Centred Psychotherapy with the University of Birmingham. I also hold a BA (Hons) in Philosophy. I have experience working with adults in a variety of settings and have focused experience working with adult carers and women experiencing distress and challenge. Alongside my private work, I work for Breast Cancer Care facilitating a support group for women living with secondary breast cancer. I have also worked with children using person-centred play therapy. I have a particular interest in the experience of 'endings' which may occur due to bereavement, unemployment, the ending of relationships and general life transitions. I welcome supporting clients through these processes. I have both lectured and tutored on the University of Salford's Counselling and Psychotherapy BSc and MSc courses. I am also a fully qualified Supervisor. I am a UKCP registered psychotherapist and a member of the BACP and as such adhere to associated codes of ethics.
