About me and my therapy practice
I am a friendly experienced (16 years and counting) BACP Accredited Counsellor and Counselling Psychologist (in Training) who operates from a fully serviced office close to Manchester's Piccadilly Station. I have, since I was very young, been interested in what makes people tick and that is why I chose Psychology as my first degree. After a stint as an Army Officer and then a Recruitment Consultant I landed back in the world of counselling and psychology by joining an Employee Assistance Work based counselling organisation. I worked in that industry for over 13 years before branching out as a private practitioner, having gained my counselling qualifications many years earlier.
My main areas of speciality have traditionally been counselling in the LGBT, Human Rights (with victims of torture/serious trauma) and Workplace arenas but I have counselled outside of these with young people and Groups as well. As well as my main counselling qualifications I am now also EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing) qualified and this is a particularly good NICE recommended therapy for PTSD and trauma.
Always happy to have a free initial consultation/assessment to see whether we are a fit and then take things from there.
