I offer calm and friendly counselling in south Manchester.
I enjoy working with people and am curious about others. I am comfortable being with a very wide range of people from all kinds of backgrounds, including male and female clients of all ages. I am also LGBTQIA friendly.
I am happy to work with clients on a range of issues, and have particular experience to date supporting people with problems at work, work-related issues and stress; depression and low mood; relationship breakdown; parenting, infertility; being a lone parent; low confidence or self -esteem; PMT and the menopause; bereavement and grief. It may also be that you simply want a space to work out what you need and what changes you want to make in your life.

Frequently Asked Questions
I haven't done counselling before. How do I know if it is right for me?
Yes, lots of the people I see haven't done counselling before and it's quite usual to feel a bit apprehensive about it. It might be helpful to ask yourself: am I ready to invest some time and energy into looking at myself and my life? And am I ready to change? After that, you can only really know by coming for a few sessions and seeing what it is like.
How long are the sessions?
How many sessions will I need?
I do not work to a fixed number of sessions, as it so much depends on what we want as clients to get from the counselling. However, I do encourage clients to commit at first to weekly appointments in order to build up our rapport, and recommend that we aim for six sessions to start with. At that point, we can review how it is going and decide whether and how to continue.
What happens if I miss a session?
If you miss a session, please let me know and I am happy to re-arrange. If you let me know at least 24 hours’ beforehand, I will not charge for the missed session.
