About me

I am an experienced, qualified counsellor, working face to face or online in Trafford, South Manchester. I can help you with anxiety, low self-esteem, isolation, depression, worry, identity loss and family or relationship issues. I can help you explore your current situation and how past experiences may still be affecting how you live your life or how you react in your relationships with family and friends; understanding how you feel and behave can bring about positive change and empower you to improve your life.   Talking to someone can really help change your outlook.

I am fully qualified, BACP registered and am fully insured. I will ensure that you safe during sessions and that everything we talk about will remain confidential .  I provide a structured, professional therapy service that you can rely on.  

I offer face to face sessions or online appointments to suit your needs and offer a 15 minute chat to talk through your requirements beforehand.  I have 2 counselling rooms in Trafford: The Nebula centre, Carrington and The Wellbeing Rooms, Stretford.  The Nebula centre is surrounded by trees and nature creating a tranquil, calm space to access talking therapy.
Stretford is easy to access just off Trafford Park train station, and low-cost therapy is available here on a Wednesday.
I can be flexible in how your therapy is arranged which may be once a week, fortnightly, or a mixture of both online and face to face. My therapy service can be arranged around your life so we discuss what you need as part of the introductory call.  I also offer walking therapy, taking our sessions outside to feel the full benefit of nature and a sense of freedom.  

I understand that finding the right counsellor can be daunting, so the first step is to drop me a message and I can answer any questions you may have before we arrange any appointments.  

Training, qualifications & experience

I have experience working with anxiety, eating disorders, stress, worry, post-natal anxiety, menopause relationship problems and self-esteem issues. I have worked as a mentor and coach for a number of years so I will bring a positive, solution-focussed aspect to the counselling relationship. I am trained in safeguarding and data protection legislation. I am qualified in person-centred therapy and have experience working with young adults and neurodiversity.

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.
