I offer counselling sessions for individuals and couples at my home in Cheadle. Please contact me on 07851479765 if you have any questions or if you would like to book a session.
If you are feeling anxious, stressed, or find that things are getting too difficult, therapy is an opportunity to press the pause button so that your thoughts, feelings and behaviours can be explored. During our sessions together I will help you make more sense of how you are feeling which will lead to a better understanding of yourself and your situation. This will help you be in more control of your feelings, putting you in a better position to deal with life's challenges.
If you are looking to spend time in counselling with your partner, I offer a solution-focused approach to help you rebuild your relationship. Together we will identify what isn't working, what can work, and improve how you communicate with each other.
I have worked with clients on a wide range of personal challenges, including relationships issues, depression, anxiety, stress, bereavement, workplace issues, confidence, and self-esteem.
Training, qualifications & experience

Areas of counselling I deal with
Other areas of counselling I deal with
If, like me, you have dyslexia you may relate to some of the following:
- Finding difficulties in filling out a form
- Forgetting people’s names
- Feeling clumsy in a social situations
- Not organising your time well
- Feeling different
- Not quite getting things right
- Feeling slow and stupid
If you experience these things it is likely that you hide or compensate for your difference. Perhaps you avoid social interactions, do a job that is too easy for you, or find excuses to avoid tasks that involve reading or writing.
Since we attempt to hide and compensate for our difference, people with dyslexia are less likely to be promoted at work, less likely to attend further training and education, and more likely to experience depression and low self-esteem.
What makes it more challenging are the many myths that exist about dyslexia. Common myths, for example, include the idea that dyslexia is something that only affects children; dyslexia only affects the ability to read and write; and being dyslexic is associated with low intelligence. It is these myths that we need to battle with each day.
Spending time in counselling exploring the social and emotional impact of dyslexia will help you gain control of who you are, rather than let dyslexia define who you are. You will gain more confidence, believe in your abilities, and find your own voice. Ultimately, instead of hiding and battling with who you are, you will begin to be proud of who you are.
I can offer sessions over video conferencing if you’re unable to meet me in Eccles, Salford.
