About me

We all know that our emotions can get the best of us and affect everything we do in life. It can prevent us from moving forwards.

Are you looking for someone who knows about the difficulty it takes to see the light at the end of the tunnel? Life is hard, and you will be wondering what type of counsellor you want. Are you looking for a counsellor who understands the complexities of life and all the problems that are associated with them such as gender, social class, sex, culture, religion, stigmas etc

At some point in our lives, we all go through some anxiety, depression and sadly bereavement,

I can help you with all those emotions and anger, by helping you understand what the root cause is, and work with you to see a better future.

Are you feeling suicidal and alone? Again I can work with you to find out why you feel this way, and work with you to see a better future.

I offer a deep empathic listening ear with no judgements.

I’m a fully qualified and accredited counsellor and hypnotherapist based in Manchester. I also have a specialism in helping to understand and guide you through the darkness of losing your baby or child. I use a mixed approach and adapt using other approaches depending on the situation.

With a caring gentle manner and professional insight, I offer a safe place for you talk, to be yourself and to be really heard. My mission is to help you break free from negative thoughts so you can discover your emotional strength and embrace a new way of thinking.

When you contact me, the initial session is £20, in order to find out more about what you need and and allow you to ask me any questions and then we will arrange sessions if it is what you need.

I contract for 6 - 8 sessions initially and will then review.

Further information

I am a firm believer that asking for help is a sign of strength and not of weakness.

I also believe that living in a multi cultural society has its own set of issues ranging from forming your own identity, fitting in with what is expected of you and merging your personal life with your social and work one. There are also other issues that emerge, and I am able to understand and empathise with these.
