About me

HeIlo. I am a qualified Counsellor with a Post Graduate Diploma in Systemic Practice with Families and Couples and an MSc in Counselling and Psychology.

I passionately believe that everyone, regardless of their life experience and current situation can enhance their life through working with a counsellor.

I work with clients either as individuals, couples or families. I work alongside the client, looking at the client as both an autonomous person and as part of a wider family unit.

I specialise in bereavement counselling particularly perinatal loss in which I have much experience, having worked in a hospital bereavement support service. I am also skilled in working with a wide range of issues. I also work with clients simply on 'resilience counselling'; to work on their emotional skills to empower them to deal with the challenges of life on a daily basis.

I utilise an integrative modality meaning I will use whatever suits the client and the client is comfortable with, be it CBT, Brief Therapy, Narrative therapy or Person Centred Counselling. I am committed to providing client-centred support that empowers individuals to make their own decisions.

I work from modern bright therapy rooms situated in Prestwich, North Manchester. There is plenty of free parking in the surrounding streets. You can see more details and pictures of the Centre at .

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a BSc (Hons) in Psychology. I have also completed a Postgraduate Diploma in Systemic Practice with Families and Couples. I also have an MSc in Counselling and Psychotherapy completed at the University of Salford. This included a CBT component.

I have worked with students within Salford University on resilience skills and various life challenges.

I have also worked for several years at Central Manchester University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust in the Family Support Unit, providing counselling to bereaved family members.

I have a private practice where I work with clients individually or as couples on whatever it is they wish to bring be it loss, bereavement or any other challenge that has come their way.
