About me

During the coronavirus outbreak, I will be accepting new clients and supervisees for telephone and Skype counselling.

I am a BACP registered Counsellor working in private practice in Chorlton, South Manchester providing counselling and psychotherapy for adults, couples and young people aged 11+ with emotional, psychological and behavioural problems.

I have worked in the fields of mental health and education for 30 years. I work mainly with clients with generalised anxiety disorder, anxiety, depression, panic attacks, eating disorders, OCD and HSP (highly sensitive people), social phobias, low self-esteem, and family and relationship issues.

I also work with clients with emotional and physical/chronic pain, IBS, fibromyalgia, bereavement, arthritis and post-op pain.

I offer a safe supportive space where clients are free to explore personal thoughts, feelings and complex challenging issues. My role is to help clients throughout the process without judgement, to resolve issues, build capacity for self-management and re-establish a sense of control and emotional resilience. Together we can identify themes, work through obstacles or barriers and understand how wider influences or patterns of thoughts and behaviours may be maintaining anxious or depressed feelings.

Clinical Supervision

I offer clinical supervision to qualified and trainee counsellors as well as healthcare and education professionals.  I use Hawkins and Shohet’s relational and systemic Seven-Eyed Model of Supervision.  Supervision focuses on the relationships between the client, counsellor and supervisor and the connections and interplay between each relationship and their context within the wider system.  I emphasise the importance of contemplation and reflection and cultivating and refining the skills and abilities to search for new choices and possibilities.  I try to create a climate where the dynamics and creativity of the work can be fully explored generating more independent, inspired and resourceful Supervisees.

Member organisations

BACP

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.
