Are you struggling with anxiety due to loss, relationships, work or coming to terms with episodes from your past? Maybe you want to explore why you behave, think or feel as you do, which can lead to positive change or self-acceptance. Have you kept worries to yourself for a while, not sleeping and not sharing how you really feel because you’re frightened that people won’t understand or that you’ll be a burden?
Working with a therapist can help you get to where you'd like to be. I work with people on a range of issues and have a special interest in anxiety, low self esteem and issues with identity and belonging.
Therapy has been shown to help develop better coping skills to deal with life's challenges, as well as improving relationships with others and feeling better about yourself.
Curious about what drives you to behave as you do, I will bring a natural warmth, compassion and candour to our relationship, and will create a calm and respectful space within which to work.
Although we all arrive where we are today by different routes and experiences along the way, we all share the same emotions. Difference and uniqueness can be celebrated as much as our commonalities.
In mutual agreement we can sensitively explore your concerns and move towards the outcomes you are seeking.
To make an appointment you can contact me via the details at the top of this page.
My psychotherapy practice is in the Chorlton area of Manchester, where I work one-to-one, on an open-ended basis or for an agreed time period. My aim is to enable you to enhance your life and to live it more fully. I am committed to providing psychotherapy and counselling safely, in confidence and non-judgementally.

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.
