Adele King - MBACP, BSc Hons, PgDip Counselling & Psychotherapy
Life can at times be challenging, you may have lots of worries whirling through your head. You may know what's worrying you, but can't seem to 'fix it'? Perhaps you experience low moods or feel distressed frequently, however find it a real struggle to be open about this? Do you find your relationship with your partner isn't how it used to be and either one or both of you are feeling 'stuck'?
Reaching out for therapy can seem daunting at first, however it doesn't have to be that way. As a counsellor, I’m here to help you feel listened to. I will provide a compassionate and non-judgemental environment where you feel safe to voice and explore those worries and difficulties.
As well as one to one therapy, I also offer couples counselling if you’re having relationship problems with your partner. Working with adults and young people means that no counselling experience is the same. My integrative approach means that I can tailor my counselling methods to suit your needs. I will work collaboratively with you and give you the therapeutic time and space to help you build the skills and confidence to be able to understand yourself better and to make positive changes in your life.
Sessions last 50-60 minutes for both individual and couple work. I offer time limited (6-12 sessions) and longer term counselling. My practice welcomes people from all races, cultures, ages and sexual orientation.
My practice is based in a beautiful, warm and welcoming location in the City Centre of Manchester which is easily accessible by all means of transport and on street parking is located nearby.
Areas of counselling
Over the years, I have worked with many client issues such as anxiety, stress and depression, marital and relationship difficulties, domestic abuse, family breakdown, parenting, trauma, bereavement, low self-esteem, loss of confidence, loss of purpose, loneliness, cultural and racial issues, suicidal ideation, social media anxiety, university and workplace stress, bullying and burnout. I’ve worked with clients who may not know what is bothering them and found that therapy work has been successful in helping them to unlock that uncertainty.
I’m a fully qualified counselling psychotherapist who is a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). This means that I follow their code of conduct and attend supervision as well as receive regular CPD training to ensure I practise in a responsible and ethical way.
Please feel free to get in touch to find out more about what happens in counselling sessions. Finding the right counsellor is really important for sessions to be effective therefore if you're unsure, I can provide an initial 20 minute free telephone consultation before you start. You can contact me on 07900471088 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Individual and couple counselling from £50 per session
(Reduced rate available for students, low income or unemployed)
As well as my own private practice, I also work as a staff counsellor within the NHS and as a couple’s counsellor for Relate. Prior to my work in counselling and psychotherapy, I worked in the higher education sector and in the corporate/professional services arena.
I believe this wealth of experience has given me a good understanding of what difficult and pressurised work or home environments that my clients can face.
Please do have a look at my website if you want to know more about the services I offer.
