About me and my therapy practice

I am a highly experienced BACP Registered Accredited Counsellor and Reiki Master based in Manchester UK. Prompt appointments are usually available.

Telephone and remote therapy sessions are also available for people who can't attend face-to-face.

I offer confidential counselling for many issues and work with adults, young people, couples and small groups. My aim is to help you to explore your concerns and to find ways forward that are right for you.

My counselling approach is person-centred. This is based on a fundamental belief that people can heal in a favourable environment, provided through a supportive therapeutic relationship. Creative/art therapy is also available.

You may be considering counselling because a particular event could be causing distress, or there may be a feeling of needing to deal with something that has been going on for some time. Whatever your concern and level of distress, you may find counselling to be of some help.

In addition to counselling, I am also a Reiki Master and offer Reiki therapy.

Therapy sessions usually last 1 hour and can be arranged according to your requirements.

Cost: My hourly charge is for individual or couples/small group sessions.

Discount is available for block booking of sessions.

My qualifications:

B.Sc.(Hons), Dip. Counselling, Reg. MBACP (Accred), Reg. No. 093559, Reiki Master.

My first session

In our first session, we would start with discussing how we might work together and what you wish to explore.

After this, the space is yours to start wherever you wish to start. If you are not sure where or how to start or find it difficult then I'll try to help you.

There is no set way of 'doing' therapy - I aim to offer a safe and supportive environment, where the process is co-created and evolves between us, in a way that is right for you.
