About me

Hello there!  I've been working as a counsellor and therapist in Manchester since 2010 and relocated to Glossop in 2015.  Since then I have specialised in trauma work by training in EMDR therapy.  I'm particularly experienced working with emotional / sexual abuse and bereavement, and also anxiety and depression, which are probably the most common problems people seek help for.  I also frequently support young people aged 13 or over.

What is important in my work?

  • providing a safe and supportive environment for dealing with personal challenges,
  • building a warm and trusting relationship,
  • offering various ways of working - within my training - because different people and problems benefit from different approaches.


In the past I have worked for an NHS counselling service, four charities and in private practice. This has given me a lot of experience of supporting people with various life challenges.

Currently I provide counselling for young people at 42nd Street, a well-respected Greater Manchester charity. I also offer sessions in my Glossop-based private practice for people of all ages.

Specialist training
In early 2017 I completed the standard training in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) therapy and obtained accreditation with the EMDR Association UK last year.

My Advanced Certificate in Counselling for Depression enables me to offer an emotion-focused approach that works well not only for depression but for many other issues rooted in suppressed or unacknowledged feelings.  This way of working is IAPT-compliant, which means it has been proven to be effective in studies and is approved for use in the NHS.

How to get started
Informal enquiries by phone or email are welcome.  I feel it's really important you find the right counsellor, so I offer a free 30 minutes face-to-face, video or telephone consultation, to help you decide.

Please have a look at my website www.growingwell.uk for more information, including testimonials from former clients.

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.


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.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.

My current premises are not wheelchair accessible, but please enquire as it may be possible to find another venue. Video sessions are another convenient option.
