Luke Cahill - MBACP, BSc Counselling & Psychotherapy
**I am not currently offering first meetings for potential new clients.**
I am a BACP registered counsellor offering short-term and long-term counselling for adults from an established shared practice in Chorlton, South Manchester. I also offer online meetings.
Whether you are dealing with anxiety or depression, trying to come to terms with difficult events, or struggling to make desired changes in your life or relationships, I believe that our problems, and the best ways of working towards overcoming them, are as unique as we are.
So I offer a personalised and responsive counselling service which is tailored to your problems, needs, and preferred ways of working and is focused on making progress towards where you want to be.
I can work with you to more clearly map out where you are and how you'd like things to be different, and offer suggestions of how we could work towards the changes you want. I will then guide and support you in doing the work you feel most useful and relevant, whilst regularly encouraging us to check the direction of our work matches your goals.
Some examples of ways of working in counselling are practical problem solving, reflection on painful experiences, developing coping strategies, exploring strong emotional reactions, homework exercises/experiments, and considering personal values and meaning, among many other possibilities.

BACP Registered Member
I have experience in working with problems relating to depression, anxiety, work-related stress, bereavement, life transitions, anger, relationship issues, low self-confidence, and the after-effects of abuse and violence, among other issues.

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.
