I am an experienced psychotherapist, coach and supervisor and have worked in Manchester for the last 10 years.
I work with individuals and couples on a wide range of issues including depression, anxiety, sexuality, low self-esteem, confidence, relationship problems, stress and the search for meaning in life.
Going into therapy can be daunting - but effective therapy is grounded in good technique, humour, compassion, understanding and acceptance. We will work together to explore what is troubling you and help you understand your thoughts, feelings and behaviour patterns.
I believe that everyone has the capacity to make changes in their life if they want to and that we can all live a happy and fulfilling existence.
It's important to find the right therapist for you - and I offer a free 30 minute initial meeting so we can decide if we're a good fit to work together.
Training, qualifications & experience
I work with individuals and couples for short and long-term (open-ended) therapy. Consultations are 50 minutes for individual therapy and 60 minutes for couples.
Consultations are available from Monday to Sunday with daytime, early morning and evening appointments available.
I've worked as a therapist in Manchester for the last 8 years and also work as an executive coach for the BBC.
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.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
