About me

I am an experienced Counsellor and Psychotherapist registered with the BACP, and I provide face-to-face counselling in central Manchester, as well as remote sessions.

One of my main goals in therapy is to provide every client with a safe space to process and explore their concerns, issues and feelings. I understand that reaching out for support can be daunting, as well as how beginning therapy can be disconcerting. However, as part of my role as the counsellor, I aim to ensure that this process is as comfortable as possible, and you feel supported and at ease. 

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a Postgraduate Diploma in Counselling and Psychotherapy, and a Bachelor of Science in Psychology, and my background experience is in education. 

In my practice, I believe it is important to recognise that all individuals experience life events and mental health problems very differently, and no experience is the same. As a person centred counsellor and psychotherapist, I offer a non-directive approach, whereby the therapeutic space gives you the opportunity to discuss your internal world openly.

My experience includes working with client's that have experienced anxiety, depression, bereavement, low self-esteem, relationship problems, pregnancy loss, fertility issues and substance abuse or misuse. I work with a varied range of issues, including religious deconstruction and abuse.

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.

My working hours for private practice are varied. Please contact me for any availability queries.

Further information

Initially I offer a free 15-minute consultation online or by telephone. This provides you with the chance to bring any queries or questions you may have, and to give me an idea of what your goals and expectations are from counselling.

Subsequently, once we agree to work together, I deliver 50-minute sessions, whereby we will review the number of sessions needed accordingly.
