I am an experienced counsellor supporting individuals across Greater Manchester
I am currently working for a National Mental Health Charity and have experience of supporting clients in a range of venues including workplace, schools and more clinical settings such as NHS venues. I have experience of working with both Adults and Young People (starting from age 5+).
I come at counselling from the person centred approach which means I believe you are the expert on you and ultimately trust that you will have the most appropriate insight into the solutions available. I know how challenging that must sound, "why would you need therapy, if you had all the answers?" but I believe sitting with someone who supports you in finding the right way for you is a powerful vehicle for change. I have also had further training in a variety of different approaches including solution focused and CBT approaches though my base approach is always person centred.
I work with a variety of issues though the majority of client who come to see me tend to be around relationships (family, friends, partner or workplace), mental health related issues such as anxiety, stress and low mood or around general development/direction. Feel free to contact if you want to explore whether we can work together on whatever is troubling you.
I always aim to speak to clients before we meet to discuss how we can best work together, If we aren’t a match i always endeavour to point you in the right direction of someone who might be.

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.
