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 is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
