About me and my therapy practice

My therapy practice is in the Royal Exchange building, St Ann’s Square. 

For the duration of the national lockdown introduced in January 2021, I am providing telephone appointments only.

I am experienced in working with a wide ranger of symptoms, including anxiety, panic and phobias, as well as with sadness, depression and low self-esteem.

• I am a qualified and experienced therapist at this registered practice established in 2011

• I draw on two years work as a Telephone Counsellor for a leading private health care provider and two years work as Therapist for a North West charity

• I play an active role in Manchester's network of therapists and am chair of the North West Regional Psychotherapy Association (

• Before qualifying as a therapist I pursued a first career in the arts for 20 years holding increasingly senior positions within UK universities

My first session

Your first appointment provides an opportunity for us to consider what brings you to therapy.

For some people this appointment can be both exciting and stressful while others may feel calm and relaxed. Individual reactions differ though everything discussed is treated in confidence.

During our appointment a fuller picture will emerge and you may also become aware of other things that were not previously on your mind.
