About me and my therapy practice

My passion is supporting creatives and those in non-conforming careers and lifestyles, including but not limited to artists, activists, writers, musicians, freelancers and entrepreneurs.

I know these avenues require a huge amount of integrity, bravery and vulnerability, and that this can sometimes contribute to feeling anxious, stressed, scared, isolated and/or exhausted, or amplify other issues that you’re facing.

As a first step, I offer a free telephone consultation so we can get to know each other better, and explore together the ways I might be able to help.

With me, you'll find a safe, supportive, confidential and compassionate space where you can share and explore what's happening for you without judgement. As a qualified therapeutic counsellor, I'll use my knowledge and experience to support you in identifying and exploring the challenges you face.

Together, we’ll work at your pace to identify where you want to be and what will help you get there.

At present, I practice in Manchester city centre on Sundays, and online on Mondays and Thursdays.

Practice description

Rebel Therapy is for punks and poets, baristas in bands, anarchists and artists. It’s for ravers, screenwriters, drag artists, dancers and dreamers.

Developed in response to my decades of experience as an active participant in my local queer and arts communities, Rebel Therapy is a therapeutic counselling service for anyone who feels like an outsider.

It’s for those who feel like their politics or sexuality aren’t welcome in their workplace, family or community. It’s for anyone who feels like they’ve ever had to hide a key part of who they are.

It’s for those who are struggling to juggle their day job, passion project and fledgling bedroom business. It’s for people whose identity has shifted in some way – due to births, deaths or other changes – and don’t know who they are anymore.

It’s for people considering or taking risks – creatively, professionally or personally – and feeling unsure about the path forward. It’s for freelancers, entrepreneurs and people with patchwork or portfolio careers. It’s for multi-hyphen misfits who don’t fit into tidy categories when it comes to describing their identities, priorities and passions.

As a first step, I offer a free telephone consultation so we can get to know each other better, and explore together the ways I might be able to help.

My first session

If you want to book a session, the first step is a free half-hour phone consultation to learn more about each other. If we both feel we're a good fit, from there we'll find a day, time and place that works for us both. At the moment I practice on Sundays in Manchester city centre and see other clients online on Mondays and Thursdays.

You’re not committed to a specific a number of sessions: this is something we can look at together on an ongoing basis depending on how you feel the sessions are going. We’ll go at your pace and you’ll always be the one in charge of how many sessions you have.

I’ll send you a confirmation email, with the time and date we’ve agreed along with a link and log-in you can use to join our session when the time time comes.

I’ll also send you a couple of bits of simple paperwork in advance for you to read through before our session. You’ll have the opportunity in our first session to ask any questions about them.

When our first session starts, I’ll explain the way I work and what you can expect. We’ll discuss confidentiality, so you can choose what you share with me from an informed, empowered place. Then you can tell me more about what’s been happening for you, ask any questions that might have arisen since our initial phone chat, and explore what you might want to get from our sessions together.

Towards the end of the our first session, I’ll let you know that our time’s coming to a close. This will allow us to bring our conversation to an end and talk about next steps.
