About me

Are you struggling, experiencing difficulties, feeling down or going through a life changing event? I am a qualified integrative counsellor, working with adults, providing a safe space to explore these feelings. I am committed to making a difference to my client’s lives and offer a warm, non-judgemental, compassionate and confidential counselling service based in Heaton Moor.

I like to a build strong and secure relationship with my client, one based on trust, where you are fully free to be yourself and feel safe to discuss any difficulties you are facing. My aim is to support you whilst we explore what’s happening, gain insight as to why, and by working together, help you overcome these issues and bring positive change.  Whatever it is, counselling can help work with these feelings in a warm and supportive environment where you are free to be seen and heard in confidence and without any judgement. I offer a free initial 20 minute phone call where you can ask any questions you may have and to ensure we are a good fit so that you feel comfortable moving forward. I offer face to face and video call sessions – evening and weekend appointments are also available.   

Clients of all ages and from all backgrounds come to therapy for many different reasons. I feel privileged to have supported my clients with many issues, including: depression, low self-esteem, grief, shame, stress, anxiety, family and relationship issues, negative thoughts, bereavement, ADHD and abuse. 

I am a member of the BACP and adhere to their ethical framework. As a qualified integrative counsellor I draw on a combination of Person Centred Therapy (PCT), Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Transactional Analysis (TA) and work with you to find the best approach for you.

Member organisations

BACP

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.
