Chloe Brew Counselling
*Practice currently full* Manchester-based counsellor/psychotherapist offering face-to-face or online sessions with adults. I provide a confidential space for clients to come and talk through whatever issues they feel are impacting upon them, so that together we can find a way to make changes.
Quieten that harsh inner voice …
Self-criticism can feel like it’s on a painful, repeating loop. It comes in many forms but you might find you are telling yourself that you are a bad person, not good enough, or boring, ugly or fat. Far from motivating you, it’s my belief that punishing yourself in this way actually limits your choices and actions and keeps you stuck. Quite simply, talking to yourself in a mean way doesn’t get you anywhere. It keeps you in the incessant loop of asking ‘why am I not good enough?’ or ‘what have I ever achieved?’. Talking to another person, and opening up about this habit can really help and move you towards a more enjoyable way of living.
I am a warm and relational person, and believe an honest and straight-forward approach is the very best way to work through life's problems. I have trained in a Transactional Analysis Psychotherapy approach and one of the fundamental beliefs is that everyone has the capacity to change, no matter how stuck or helpless they feel.
If you would like to arrange an initial session, or ask a question, you are very welcome to get in touch.

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.
Accredited register membership

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
