About me

  • I can offer two reduced fees for those seeking long-term weekly psychotherapy, please contact me for further details.
  • morning and evening appointments available on request.

I prioritise a relational - analytical approach to therapy, this means that I place an importance upon the therapeutic relationship and what may be happening, consciously or unconsciously, between us within the consulting room. I assist people to become aware of conflicting, and often unconscious, aspects of themselves which can be a catalyst for self-awareness and change. Our work together will be explorative, we will be curious about your processes and how you make sense of your life experiences; from this we can we then learn to understand how past ways of being disrupt your present day living.

The reasons that people come to therapy vary and each person's therapeutic project is unique; together we will look at where you have been, where you are now, and who you would like to become. 

I offer integrative counselling in the South Manchester and Cheshire area. I am a fully qualified and registered integrative therapist with the BACP and NCPS. I am also a trainee and student member of the UKCP and UKATA respectively. I work with an adult (18+) population and have worked with people ranging from ages 18 to 83, each person is unique and no therapy is the same.

I offer both short term counselling and long term therapy; throughout our work together we will evaluate and 'check in' with how the work is progressing and developing. I am currently working with individuals, couples, and family units on a weekly basis.

Training, qualifications & experience

MSc Integrative Counselling (Distinction)

  • I completed a level 7 (MSc) qualification in integrative counselling which trained me in several approaches such as psychodynamic, person-centred, cognitive and behavioural approaches. I can cater the therapy to your needs and desired outcomes.

Transactional Analysis Psychotherapy

  • I am undertaking a secondary level 7 intensive psychotherapy training in Transactional Analysis Psychotherapy, accredited by the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP).


  • I have worked with people experiencing a variety of difficulties such as anxiety, depression, trauma, disordered eating, relationship difficulties, and bereavement to name a few. I specifically have experience working with relationships (inc. family issues), gender and sexually diverse people, life changing diagnoses, and people struggling with existential difficulties in their lives. If you are struggling with something that I have not listed, please get in touch and we can have an open discussion as to whether I would be the right therapist for you.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

National Counselling & Psychotherapy Society (NCPS)

The National Counselling and Psychotherapy Society

This Not For Profit association of counsellors and psychotherapists aim to support the counselling profession, members and training organisations.

In 2013 the NCS register was accredited by the Professional Standards Authority under the Accredited Voluntary Register Scheme. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

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.
