About me and my therapy practice

HeIlo. I am an accredited Counsellor with a Post Graduate Diploma in Systemic Practice with Families and Couples and an Msc in Counselling and Psychology. 

I passionately believe that everyone, regardless of their life experience and current situation can enhance their life through working with a counsellor. 

I work with clients either as individuals, couples or families. I work alongside the client, looking at the client as both an autonomous person and as part of a wider family unit.

I specialise in bereavement counselling particularly perinatal loss in which I have much experience, having worked in a hospital bereavement support service. 

I am also skilled in working with a  a wide range of issues. I also work with clients simply on 'resilience counselling'; to work on their emotional skills to empower them to deal with the challenges of life on a daily basis. I have successfully worked with clients who are suffering from anxiety and /or depression using a range of therapy modalities. 

I utilise an eclectic range of methods meaning I will use whatever suits the client and the client is comfortable with, be it CBT, Brief Therapy, Narrative therapy or Person Centred Counselling. I also utilise mindfulness and relaxation techniques as and when the client wishes.  I am committed to providing client-centred support that empowers individuals to make their own decisions.

I am usually able to see clients within a week of being contacted and do not have a waiting list. I am also able to work with clients abroad using telecommunications.  I work from modern, bright, purpose built therapy rooms situated in Prestwich, North Manchester. Confidentiality is assured. There is plenty of free parking in the surrounding streets. You can view more details of the Centre and pictures at
