About me

I am a fully qualified psychotherapist and counsellor, accredited by the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy. My aim is to help you to understand your own feelings and to help stop those feelings from leading to destructive behaviour towards yourself and other people. My approach is straight-forward and effective. I use a wide range of psychotherapeutic techniques including short-term cognitive behavioural therapies and longer term psychodynamic techniques. I work with adults, couples and young people on an open-ended, or session limited basis.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a fully accredited by the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy as a psychotherapist and counsellor. I hold a masters degree in integrative psychotherapy and I have been working as a therapist since 2006. I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy.

As well as working in private practice, I have provided workplace counselling services to large employers in Manchester city centre. I have also provided counselling and psychotherapy at a women’s centre and to young adults at a sixth form college.

Before I became a psychotherapist, I worked in human resources management for a range of public and private sector organisations. I am a mother of two and live in South Manchester.

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.
