About me

Hello, I'm Eileen a qualified psychotherapist and nutritionist. You can work with me face to face or online.  In addition, I offer walking therapy appointments from some great locations around the Greater Manchester area. 

I offer a free initial 30-minute session which is very informal so that we can meet, you can ask any questions you may have and then you can decide what you'd like to do from there. 

I think therapy is for people who have the self-awareness to recognise that they need a helping hand and that is something to be applauded. You don't have to be in crisis to come to therapy. With counselling and psychotherapy positive changes in your relationships, work and life in general, can take place, even when those challenges seem overwhelming and distressing. 

I offer both short and long term therapy. I work with people experiencing low mood, depression, anxiety, stress, relationship challenges, issues with food and eating, childhood issues, bereavement, anger, and feeling 'stuck' in life. Whatever you may bring you are very welcome. 

If you are struggling with issues around food and eating come and work with me. Combining therapy and nutritional support is very effective and I regularly and successfully work with clients who have disordered eating patterns and challenges with weight. I'm a Licensed Practitioner of the Understanding Your Eating Programme the focus of which is emotional eating.

Member organisations

BACP

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.
