About me

I am a friendly, qualified and experienced 1-1 & couples counsellor and supervisor working in south Manchester.

I am a registered member of the British Association for counselling and psychotherapy and abide by their ethical standards.

I offer a confidential, professional and non-judgemental service.

I can offer short or long term therapy, depending on what is required.

I work from a person centred perspective because I believe that when people are given a safe space to explore their feelings and difficulties they can grow and develop the resources they already have within themselves to live more satisfying lives.

I have been working in the social care field for 17 years, including working in mental health, youth work, with lesbian, gay and bisexual people, refugees and at a women's refuge.

In addition to my private practice, I have gained my counselling experience at a rape crisis centre, a doctors surgery, a brook advisory service and a young peoples mental health centre.

Counselling has helped me in my own life to grow in confidence and self belief and also to have healthier and happier relationships with others. I find it very rewarding to see other people develop their own strengths and resources.

I believe that counselling can be of benefit to anyone, whatever their background or difficulties. Most people at some point in their lives will struggle with feelings of depression, anxiety or low confidence, especially when going through difficult life events such as bereavement, relationship breakdown or problems at work.

I also have a Masters in Social Work (Manchester Metropolitan University, 2000).

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
