Philippa Walsh Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP, P.G. Dip CBT, Dip.Couns)
1 Norwood House
53 Brighton Grove
Hello and welcome. Getting the right support is essential when life isn't going so well. I am a BACP registered Counsellor and Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist and have been approved by several health insurance providers to support their clients.
I have been helping individuals for six years and I'm also a certified couples counsellor. I offer face to face appointments at my South Manchester practice.
Deciding to see a therapist is an important and courageous decision. As someone who places the therapeutic relationship at the heart of my work, I value the level of trust it takes to be able to talk openly with someone you are unfamiliar with. My role is to support you by providing you with a safe, non-judgmental and confidential space to find a way forward.
The values I hold at the core of my practice are trust, integrity and respect. Your capacity to feel accepted for who you are, validated for all that you are and understood are central to how I work.
I don't believe that one therapeutic model suits all when it comes to our psychological wellbeing. I therefore value the flexibility of using an integrative approach - drawing on my person-centred skills, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Mindfulness and Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT).
I work with all anxiety related issues, low mood, major life transitions, bereavement, relationship difficulties and low self-esteem.
When working with couples, I will encourage you and your partner to explore your relationship openly and honestly, by providing you both with a safe and confidential space within which to talk. My role is that of facilitator so that I can enable you to identify and communicate your needs to each other more effectively, resolve conflict and to decide as a couple the most appropriate way forward.
Both my personal and professional philosophies come from a place of compassion. I believe that we all have the capacity to move beyond our obstacles and live a more rewarding life
Trying to find the right therapist at an already stressful time can be challenging; because it's important that you feel comfortable with your choice, I offer all new clients a FREE 15 minute telephone consultation to discuss what you are looking to resolve. This will give you the opportunity to ask any questions about how I work and for me to determine how best to support you.
Training, qualifications & experience
I hold a Post Graduate Diploma in CBP, awarded from the University of Salford with distinction, a BACP Accredited Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling (Level Five) and a Certificate in Couples and Relationship Counselling.
I have worked across the North West for several community-based mental health organisations, and within both primary and secondary care settings for the NHS.
Working privately gives me the privilege of being able to focus more on the individual needs of my clients rather than those of a large organisation. When I work with you, my aim is to help you get the most from every session.

The distress you're feeling can be greatly reduced with counselling or Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). It's never easy reaching out for support, but I'm here to do that in the most appropriate way for you.
To help you get past your difficulties, I will give you:
- Space to talk
- Space to breathe
- Space to reflect
- Space to gain clarity
- Space to develop new coping strategies
- Space for you.
