About me


I am a qualified person centred counsellor and psychotherapist based in Whitefield, Manchester. I offer a safe and supportive environment for you to explore your emotions. I work with adults, young people and couples.

You may be wondering whether counselling is for you? Do you need support with something that is causing you upset or would you like to be able to develop your strengths? I offer a non-judgemental space where you, the client is in the lead of the therapeutic process with my empathic support and non-directive approach. I believe everyone has the potential to explore their concerns and flourish in the right environment.

I have experience of working with abuse, historical abuse, anxiety and depression, stress,  terminal illness, bereavement, relationship issues, domestic violence, low self-esteem and more. Please check out my experience at the bottom of the page.


Sessions are 1 hour. 

Initial consultation is free. This is usually a 15 minute call prior to starting work together so you can get a feel for the type of work we will be doing together and if you feel we fit. 

Please do not hesitate to contact me and we can arrange a consultation.

Member organisations


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.
