Do you find that you are constantly worrying or overthinking and unable to 'switch off'?
Do you worry excessively about your health?
Do you dwell on past events or obsess about the future?
If you answered yes to any of these questions then talking to someone may help you to make a positive change.
As someone who has benefited from accessing talking therapies I have first-hand experience of just how life changing and rewarding they can be. It was this which inspired me to try to offer the same kind of help to other people.
I know how much counselling can help to guide people in their journey towards a fulfilled and happy life, and I’m determined to provide that kind of guidance to others. There are times when somewhere to talk and someone to listen are more important than almost anything else.
That’s why I’m committed to working with every client in a holistic, non-judgemental, supportive way. I’ll provide you with a safe, confidential space in which you’ll have the freedom to explore the roots of your emotions and experiences, and work through issues you might otherwise struggle to deal with. I see clients in Manchester City Centre and offer daytime and evening sessions as well as Skype and Telephone Sessions.
I can help you with a range of issues including: Abuse, Anxiety, Bereavement, Depression, Loss, Health Anxiety, Post-traumatic stress, Business coaching, Cancer, Health related issues, Self esteem, Relationships, Stress, Work related issues
I offer face to face Person Centred therapy to adults on a long or short term basis.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a BACP Registered Therapist, and a qualified Person Centred Counsellor. I have several years’ experience of working with clients at Macmillan Wellbeing Centre, a part of Pennine NHS Trust that supports people and their families affected by Cancer or other life limiting conditions.
Prior to this I spent time working for a national mental health charity. During this period, I helped to support people with a range of anxiety issues including: Generalised Anxiety Disorder, Social Anxiety, Agoraphobia, and Specific Phobias.
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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
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).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
