About me and my therapy practice

As a qualified, BACP Registered, Person-Centred Counsellor, I am neither directive or judgmental in approach and encourage you to fully explore your thoughts and feelings. I have expertise in supporting clients who have experienced physical, mental, emotional and sexual trauma. I believe an individual’s experiences are unique, I will listen to and support you with your difficulties.

I work solely in my private practice based on King Street, Manchester. I served in the Armed Forces and worked in a front-line position in the Civil Service for a combined total of 17 years. I most recently worked for the NHS as a Trauma Focused Counsellor and have delivered group work using CBT skills.  I have also worked as a Counsellor with Manchester Rape Crisis working with female survivors of rape and/or sexual abuse. These experiences provide me with extensive working knowledge of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, depression, stress and anxiety. I also offer counselling in many other areas listed. As a Trauma Focused Counsellor, I have additional training in areas such as Dissociation, Inner Child work and using the 'Rewind' technique to manage intrusive memories and anxiety.

I am committed to providing a safe, comfortable and therapeutic environment for clients. My approach does not just focus on the problem but what avenues of support and coping strategies you can use. I am working towards Accreditation and engage in professional development that enhances my practice, ensuring I am compliant with latest procedures, providing an ethical and professional therapeutic experience for you. I predominantly work face to face although happy to discuss options, eg Zoom/Telephone. I work with adults aged 16 and above from all backgrounds and communities.
