About me

I have run my practice successfully in Manchester and Stockport for over ten years and am currently expanding into the North East at my new location in Gosforth, Newcastle Upon Tyne. I offer face to face, online and phone therapy.

I believe we all have unique abilities and the potential to solve our own issues, we just need support to remember that sometimes. When life throws hard times our way, or when we feel we're going round and round in a hamster's wheel, we can easily forget our own power and feel overwhelmed or powerless; stuck, at the mercy of events. Psychotherapy can be supportive in helping you resolve difficult feelings, gain a clearer understanding of your problems and chart a compassionate way through them.

I have a wide range of experience of working with people in the the public and private sectors and have practiced as a therapist for over ten years. My early career was as a University Lecture in the Humanities and later as a treatment worker in a Drug and Alcohol Service, before training in counselling and psychotherapy. Following my real passion has been rewarding and satisfying on many levels and I am committed to supporting that in others.

Over a twenty year span I have worked with people and the families of those experiencing various addictions, both in formal and voluntary settings and while I know this area well my interests and expertise go much wider than dependencies alone. We all have relationships with many things - people, places and things, in our present and our past. Having these relationships work well for us, getting things straightened out, is vital to our feeling good about ourselves.

I offer appointments in Chorlton, Manchester and Gosforth, both in easily accessible locations. If you want to see whether I'm going to be the right therapist for you give me a call for an informal discussion.

Member organisations

BACP

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.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
