Joseph Sheridan-Ruddy MBACP
Are you struggling to make sense of things? Stuck in a rut and wanting to make some changes? I can help you to do this; I can help you be the better version of you.
Warm, energetic and friendly counsellor working in Manchester City Centre & Prestwich.
I offer a non-judgmental space where you can explore your issues; together we can understand what's going wrong for you and work towards finding and achieving your goals.
I know that it can be difficult opening up to a person who you trust, never mind a complete stranger. For this reason I place a lot of focus on the strength of our relationship which can lead to a growing trust between the two of us; this tends to make sharing easier. I allow my enthusiastic personality to be an important part of my practice.
I’m available to see clients face-to-face in Manchester City Centre and at Prestwich Holistic Centre.
I work in a person centred way, which means that I place your needs, your beliefs and your decisions at the centre of our work together in a non-judgmental and empathic way.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have a Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling
I am a registered member of the BACP and adhere to their ethical framework.
I've had previous success with both male and female clients in helping them to reach their therapy goals, such as reducing anxiety, depression and making improvements in their relationships.
I have a keen interest in working with the LGBTQ+ community. I've had additional training in aspects which may affect individuals from this community such as chemsex and gender issues. I have experienced in working with the community through my volunteer work with the LGBT Foundation.
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.
