Welcome. I am a psychotherapist and counsellor working with adults, young adults, couples and families on a wide range of issues which include, anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, relationship and family issues, procrastination, OCD, gender, perfectionism, grief and loss, suicidal thoughts, anger management, self-harm and addictions. I offer face-to-face and online/video call consultations in Manchester City Centre, Hale Village near Altrincham and Rodney Street in Liverpool.
When we have problems in our life, it is not always easy to ask for the help we need and most of us would like to be able to cope with life's events and changes easily, but it is not always possible. It can help to talk to a caring professional. I offer a safe, supportive, non-judgmental and professional environment in which to explore your world.
Therapy can offer us the opportunity to achieve a greater understanding of ourselves, our emotional distress and to facilitate change, a new perspective and realise our full potential.

What to Expect at the First Appointment: The initial consultation gives us the opportunity to explore the issues you wish to bring to counselling, what you hope to gain from it and for me to answer any questions you wish to ask. It also allows me to explain a little bit more about how I work, the models I use, the process of therapy and my recommendations for our work together. There is certainly no obligation to continue beyond this initial appointment.

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.
