Hello, I'm Hazel.
I am a BSc qualified pluralistic counselling psychotherapist offering short and long term therapy that is tailored to you.
I am a certified Online & Telephone Counsellor which means that you can receive confidential support from the comfort of your own home.
Sessions are currently held via Zoom, WhatsApp or Telephone. I also offer home visits and Walk & Talk sessions within a 5-mile radius of Manchester, M22.
I facilitate a warm, confidential and safe environment where we can explore your individual experiences and feelings. While holding the empathic, congruent and accepting values of Person Centred Counselling at the core of my humanistic approach, I incorporate interventions from other models of psychotherapy, depending on what may best suit your individual therapeutic needs.
While working at your pace, I offer techniques based on a Cognitive Behavioural approach to work actively towards self-acceptance, empowerment, fulfilment and self-actualisation.
CBT focuses on the links between our thoughts, feelings & behaviours. Together we can explore the patterns in your life that may be preventing you from moving forwards in your personal growth & development. On exploration, we can identify areas for change with the hope of relieving you of the distress you may be experiencing.
I believe that the best therapeutic outcomes occur when we, as counsellor and client, can connect on a genuine person to person level. You are the expert of your own life. My commitment to you is to offer a safe space where together we can explore the challenges you face, and find a pathway towards the changes you wish to see in your life.
What Could Counselling/Psychotherapy Do For You?
I will offer you a safe space to explore and find your own meaning within your process, with the hope of relieving the emotional discomfort you may be experiencing and facilitating positive growth in your personal development.
My Therapeutic Experience
After successful experiences within my own personal therapy, I began training as a Person Centred Counsellor in 2015.
I graduated from The University of Salford with a First Class Honours Degree in Counselling & Psychotherapy: Professional Practice.
I have counselling experience with the NHS, secondary schools and within private practice.
What To Expect In Our First Session
I offer a free 30 minute session where we will explore a little about what has brought you to therapy and how we would work together to achieve your therapeutic goals.
I am a Registered Member of the BACP and abide by their ethical framework for best practice.
I understand how daunting it can feel to make that initial contact. I hope to offer you a warm welcome into therapy and will be happy to answer any questions you may have.

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.
