About me

Welcome and thank you for looking at what I can offer


I am fully qualified to offer counselling to both adults and children/young people. I am a qualified relationship counsellor and systemic family practitioner and I work both in private practice and within the NHS. I support couples and families with relationship difficulties of any nature, and also where a family member may be experiencing mental heaIth issues. I work with people experiencing depression, anxiety, trauma and chronic illness as well as people who have experienced abuse. I also work with people experiencing work based stress.

I also work with clients of all ages with/ without a diagnosis of ADHD/Autism

I aim to provide a safe place for you to explore your thoughts and feelings confidentially, to understand you and to listen to you without judgement. I will  go at your pace and support you to discover new perspectives, explore who you are and what is important to you and to make changes when and if this feels right for you.

I am a fully qualified and experienced counsellor/psychotherapist and I offer specialist relationship counselling to couples and family members having undertaken advanced training.

I am happy to work on a short term basis from as little as four sessions or to work on a longer term or open ended basis where you are free to return to counselling after a break or to cope with a new challenge in your life.

My approach is person centred which focuses on developing our therapeutic relationship although I also integrate solution-focused, cognitive-behavioural ,systemic and psychodynamic approaches

As a counsellor I work with people with a range of issues including depression, anxiety, bereavement, health issues, abuse, trauma and lots of other issues.I work with individuals, couples and family members as well as young people.


I also offer both personal and career coaching drawing in my experience as a manager and consultant as well as my skills as a counsellor. I have particular skills and experience in dealing with work based stress and anxiety and in  career coaching.

My approach is collaborative putting you in the driving seat and travelling at your pace I aim to draw out individual potential using a reflective rather than a directive approach.

Practice location

I offer both counselling/psychotherapy and coaching from my comfortable practice based in Sale, South Manchester.

Member organisations

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.

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).

Further information

Individual Counselling

My approach is person centred which focuses on developing our therapeutic relationship. This is a relationship within which as a client you can feel truly heard and understood. I aim to listen emphatically with acceptance and without judgement. Through this relationship you can explore what is happening in your life, seek solutions and go on to make changes at a time and pace which is right for you. We will embark on that journey together. Depending on the presenting issues I may also integrate solution focused, systemic, cognitive behavioural and psychodynamic approaches.

Relationship Counselling

I work with couples and family members who wish to explore their relationship, feel they have reached an impasse or are facing a particularly difficult period in their relationship.This may include couples who are unsure if they want to stay together.

Young People

I see young people with a variety of issues including low mood, anxiety, exam stress, friendship issues, bullying, parental separation and divorce and lots of other issues. I am experienced in working with young people as I currently work within Child and Ad7lt Mental Heath Services (CAMHS) in the NHS

Ethical practice

I am a member of BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy) and as such abide by its Code of Ethics which means that you can be assured of a high standard of practice. I also carry Professional Indemnity and Public Liability Insurance.

I attend regular individual and case group supervision and participate in on-going personal and professional development.
