Mary Sullivan Counselling
Are you looking for calm and friendly counselling in south Manchester or Manchester city centre? Do you want to make a change in your life this year? Have you found there is something you can't seem to sort out just by talking it through with friends/family or your partner? Do you want a supportive space to talk through life difficulties and issues?
I am curious about others and enjoy working with people. I aim to be reliable and interested without being judgmental. I am comfortable working with a wide range of male and female clients, am LGBTQIA friendly and have a very wide experience of working with people who are not fluent in English.
I use a purpose-built counselling room in Whalley Range and therapy rooms on Deansgate.

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. 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.
