About me

Hi, I’m Sherry I am a qualified, experienced and compassionate counsellor offering a friendly and approachable service to adults and young people facing emotional, personal or relationship difficulties. Daytime, evening and weekend appointments available with on-site parking. Based in Worsley village, Salford M28.

My style is that of quiet patience. I am interested about the people sat with me and extend warmth and compassion in a gentle way so we can work together to find the right solution for you. Everyone starts somewhere and I'm here to help you start the way that is right for you.

I understand it can be difficult to make initial contact so to make this as easy as possible, I am happy to offer a free initial telephone consultation to explain how I work. We can also discuss any questions that you have regarding the counselling relationship and counselling process.

I offer therapy ranging from a one-off session to a long-term, open-ended basis if required.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a qualified counsellor and a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) with my practice firmly grounded in Humanistic Counselling and Cognitive Behaviour Therapies with professional qualifications and training in both, as well as additional therapeutic modalities. 

As a Professional Counsellor I take part in regular CPD (Continuing Professional Development) days so my knowledge and experience is constantly updated. 

Member organisations

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Further information

As well as working in private practice, I work with a charitable organisation offering therapy to adults who have been referred through the NHS or have self- referred with a wide range of issues.

I have worked as a school counsellor at a secondary high school with young people and I am familiar with the issues impacting young people today.

I have experience of working in social care and the NHS.  I also have significant experience of offering counselling to individuals, families, and carers who are struggling to cope with everyday life and are being impacted by: disability, long term medical conditions, life limiting illness, loss of independence and significantly reduced mental health. 

I work with people from a variety of backgrounds and cultures, neurodivergent thinking styles, with a wide range of issues.

Wheelchair user access
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.
