About me

Thank you for taking the time to visit my profile.

There are times in every individual’s life when you can feel or begin to recognise that you may not be living your life to your own personal potential.

It might be that:

  • A trauma or adverse experience in your past is still unresolved, and it is taking up a lot of your mental and emotional capacity to carry around that 'unfinished business'.
  • You feel like your life is out of balance, and is not functioning as you would like it to in the ‘now’.
  • You are unsure about how to move forward into your future in a manner that will see you live your life to your full potential.
  • You are navigating a major life landmark (such as the start or end of a relationship, taking a new career path, workplace bullying, coming to terms with a bereavement or facing a health issue) putting pressure on you.
  • You are dealing with issues connected to your sex life, sexuality or sexual functioning.
  • You lack belief in your own unique brilliance and value as a person, leading to poor self-esteem and low levels of self-confidence.
  • You are grappling with managing intense emotions such as stress, anger, depression or anxiety.
  • You are struggling with unhelpful behaviour patterns in your life such as substance misuse, social avoidance or excessive pornography use. 

If one or more of the above is impacting on your psychological (mental and emotional) wellbeing, naturally this can limit your ability to donate your time and energies to unlocking your own personal potential in order to give yourself the best possible life and be the man you can be.

There can also be times in every couple's relationship when you can feel or begin to recognise that your relationship may not be living up to your joint potential.

It might be that:

  • Some previous trauma in your relationship is as yet unresolved or unhealed.
  • Your relationship is out of balance, and not functioning as you would like it to.
  • As a couple your communication, understanding and joint commitment is not all it could be.
  • You are both unsure about the future of your relationship and where to go next.
  • You are navigating a major relationship landmark (such as getting married or having a child).
  • You are dealing with a current relationship challenge such as addiction, infidelity or money worries.
  • Areas of your relationship functionality such as communications, shared experiencing and physical intimacy are not as you would like them to be.

If one or more of the above is impacting on your relationship, naturally this can limit one or both partner's ability to enjoy your relationship, and thrive together and be the couple you can be.

About MANN uP

I established MANN uP in 2017 as a male-affirmative counselling, mentoring and life coaching practice that promotes personal, joint and collective advancement.

MANN uP aspires to offer supportive, hopeful and encouraging (i.e. affirmative) knowledge, shared wisdom and therapeutic services, that empower you to unlock your potential.

MANN uP is male-affirmative, but not male exclusive. A core value is that of equality, and services are OPEN TO ALL, both males and females. 

MANN uP offers both online (throughout the UK) and face-to-face services (in BT5) that are designed to support you to improve the state of your personal psychological wellbeing (your levels of mental and emotional health) and/or your relationship wellbeing. 

My Approach

MANN uP's services are designed to be flexible and tailored to emphasise or focus on areas or your personal or relationship wellbeing that you wish to explore and address.

Services provided by MANN uP are based on what as known is an integrative therapy framework, an approach that blends together effective and impactful elements of various theoretical models for working with others in a harmonious manner that considers the whole person. 

It brings the benefit to clients and participants of being flexible and tailored to emphasise or focus on areas that they wish to explore and address, rather than trying to constrict clients or participants to one particular way of working that may not best address their unique needs.

All programmes will encourage you to tap into and unlock the potential of your innate strengths, talents, and abilities in a holistic way, to help you achieve your chosen life or relationship goals.

How I Can Help and Support You

It may be you have a particular issue, challenge, or life landmark that is impacting your mental and emotional wellbeing, that you would like support to better understand and work though. 

If may be that there is not a particular issue you need to work on, but you would like to get into the general habit of proactively investing in building and maintaining your levels of mental and emotional ‘fitness’.

It may be that your romantic relationship is facing a challenge or crossroads that you both need help to navigate, or currently is not as fulfilling and rewarding as you would both wish it to be. 

Or It may be that you would just like dedicated time and space in the midst of a busy and demanding lifestyle, to stop, reflect and check in with yourself and/or each other on a regular basis. 

What to Expect

If you decide to work with me what can you expect from the experience? You can expect (and are entitled to), confidentiality, discretion, total respect, and an atmosphere of acceptance, non-judgement and positive regard.

It will be your journey, you decide the pace, focus and scope, and I will work with you in whichever manner is right for you.

I look forward to meeting you and partnering with you on your personal or joint advancement journey. Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have about engaging in a programme that will help unlock your potential to be the best you can be.

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)

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.

I would never want someone who wishes to engage with a service and who feels they would benefit from participating in a personal advancement programme to be prevented from doing so on the basis of affordability.

There is a need to charge for sessions to cover the costs of venue hire, travel expenses and staff time etc.

However, if the full fee presents a challenge for you, please do still get in touch to discuss the possibility of a concession rate. If it is at all possible, I will still try to accommodate you, and if I cannot, I will provide you with information on other free or low cost services that you could consider as an alternative.

I have a limited number of concession rate spaces available for counselling trainees to show support for developing capacity to support psychological wellbeing in others.

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.
