About me and my therapy practice
Looking to begin counselling or psychotherapy in Manchester city centre?
My practice is by St Ann’s Square and provides short- and long-term therapy for adults.
I am resuming in-person appointments from 29 March 2021. Read about the changes introduced to help keep you Covid-19 safe on my website.
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 a decade ago.
• I draw on two years’ work as a 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 chair the North West Regional Psychotherapy Association (nwrpa.org.uk)
• 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.
