About me and my therapy practice

I am a person-centred, Integrative psychotherapist working face to face in Chorlton, Manchester and online via  zoom.

My commitment in therapy is:

- to  adapt to your specific needs and questions

- to treat you with compassion

-to  accept you unconditionally

-to be authentic in my relationship with you

-to work to empower you in achieving your therapeutic goals

My aim as a therapist is to safely hold a space for you to explore issues which may be troubling you and to support you in your process of realising your full potential.

My Approach

I work in a person-centred, integrative, inclusive and relational way.

What this means is that:

-As a Person-Centred therapist I place the needs, wishes and beliefs of you, the client, at the centre of our therapeutic work together and work with where you are at at the present time

-As an Integrative therapist I am trained in a variety of psychotherapeutic approaches which address different ‘layers’ or aspects of experience. I draw on these approaches flexibly, as appropriate to the needs of you, the client

-As an Inclusive Therapist- I strive work in an LGBT+ affirmative, accessible and intersectional way

-As a Relational therapist, rather than seeing you, the client, as an Island, I strive to understand the relationship dynamics and social contexts in your life

I offer a free, no obligation 30-minute 'taster' session. This is an opportunity for you to ask any questions and for both of us to get a sense of how we work together.

Feel free to get in touch with any questions!
