Luke Cahill - MBACP, BSc Counselling & Psychotherapy
I am a BACP registered counsellor offering individual counselling for adults from an established shared practice in Chorlton, South Manchester. I also work online within the UK and Europe using Zoom.
Whether you are dealing with anxiety or depression, struggling with difficult life events, or unhappy with aspects of your life or relationships and finding it hard to make changes, counselling can provide a space to explore what's happening and find a way forward.
I can work with you to more clearly map out where you are and how you'd like things to be different, while supporting and encouraging you to be curious about the nature of your problems and their effect on you.
Working in counselling can involve exploring emotional reactions, paying attention to relationship patterns, considering personal values and meaning, and reflecting on difficult experiences, among many other possibilities.
My counselling meetings are 50 minutes long and I usually meet weekly with clients at a regular time, although flexibility around frequency or timing of meetings can be arranged.
My working hours for in-person meetings at Counselling Rooms are Thursday & Sunday daytimes. My working hours for online meetings via Zoom are Monday evenings and Tuesday & Friday daytimes. For currently available times, please check my website.
If you would like to discuss working together or any questions you may have before booking a first session, I offer a 20-minute initial meeting, in-person or via Zoom, without charge. Alternatively, I'm happy to answer any questions by email.
Training, qualifications & experience
BSc (Hons) Counselling & Psychotherapy: Professional Practice
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.
I regularly review and update my practice through further training and other activities in order to improve the options I can offer my clients.
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.
