About me

I am a fully qualified integrative counsellor/psychotherapist in South Manchester, who draws upon a blending of various therapies and who offers non-judgemental empathic counselling in a safe confidential environment with the aim of helping individuals develop their own resources in order to cope. I have worked for many years in an educational environment with both young people and adults.

There are many reasons that people seek help through counselling. It may be that life is particularly challenging at the moment and that you are finding it difficult to cope with every day tasks or that you do not seem to be able to gather the motivation to go about your daily life. There may also be significant life events either recent or in the past that just keep resurfacing.

I have worked for many years in an educational environment with both disaffected young people and adults. I offer long or short term therapy with concessions for those on low incomes.More recently I have worked with carers and am currently undertaking a PhD into the experiences of those caring for a relative with dementia.

I am an integrative counsellor which means I can use various approaches with a person centred base. I offer safe confidential empathic counselling in South Manchester, and offer clients space to explore their feelings in a supportive environment.
I have also trained for many years in Tai Chi (am an indoor student) Bagua and Chi Gong which enables me to help clients relax and become mindful of the feelings.

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.

Key details

Wheelchair user access
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.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
