About me

Choosing a counsellor isn’t easy, especially with just a picture (no, I don't know what that expression is either, but I hate having my photo taken and it was the best I could do!), some qualifications and a few sentences to go on, but hopefully this will give you a better idea if I’m the right one for you!

I’m warm, friendly & down to earth. I’m neither mystical nor aloof & am committed to building a relationship with you that allows you to be open, honest & feel safe enough to explore yourself, your world & your problems.

I'm a fully qualified, experienced, Person-centred Counsellor and am a Senior Accredited Member of the BACP. Over the years, I have worked as a counsellor in fourteen different settings, including the NHS, third sector organisations, Employee Assistance Programmes & in colleges and schools.

I have worked with people on a very wide range of issues, including: general anxiety, social anxiety, panic attacks, family & relationship problems, depression, abuse, racism, LGBTQI+ issues, problems at work or university, bereavement, and issues around neurodiversity (I am neurodivergent myself!).

I used to offer in-person appointments in Manchester, but have switched to online and telephone counselling only. 

I usually use Zoom, but if you'd prefer a different video counselling format just let me know and I'll check if it's secure enough! If you don't like any kind of video counselling and would prefer telephone counselling, that's okay too!

What Next?

Taking the first step can be difficult. Just get in touch via the method of contact you feel most comfortable with (or find the least worse!). If you're not sure what to say, just keep it as brief as you like- I won't be judging you for it as I sometimes find contacting people for the first time difficult too!

The first appointment is free and is a chance for both of us to ask any questions we may have, and for you to get a better idea of what counselling is and the way I work (and if I'm the right counsellor for you!). We will work at your pace on whatever you want to work on and together we will try to get you to where you need to be.

Feel free to visit my website if you'd like some more information about me or counselling.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Accredited register membership

Accredited Register Scheme

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
