About me and my therapy practice

About Me

Hi! My names CJ. I am an Integrative psychotherapist and counsellor offering support face to face in Chorlton, Manchester and online (via skype/ zoom).

What you can expect from therapy with me

Each person comes to therapy with their unique set of motivations to seek therapeutic support. Whatever your reasons, my commitment is:

-to treat you with compassion

-to accept you unconditionally

-to be authentic in my relationship with you

-to empower you in achieving your therapeutic goals.

My aim as a therapist is to safely hold a therapeutic space for you as you 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 your experience in terms of how the therapeutic relationship between us might mirror other relationships in your life

I offer a free, no obligation 30-minute 'taster' session. This is an opportunity for you to try out therapy with me, to ask any questions and to see whether you would like to work together.

Feel free to get in touch with any questions.
