About me and my therapy practice
Hi, I'm Toni. I'm a qualified person centred counsellor, and have been working with people experiencing mild to severe anxiety, stress and depression since 2015. My experience includes working with young people, adults and the elderly in private work and as a volunteer for various charities.
I have personal experience of the life changing nature of counselling, and work hard to ensure I can give everyone I work with the same transformative experience I had. Speaking to someone who can objectively and sensitively guide you through your worries can help you see things a little more clearly. I don't have magic answers to problems, but I do have the skills and experience to enable you to begin to find your own way through difficult times.
Whether the stress of day to day life has worn you down, or big events have triggered burn out, I can work at a pace that suits you until you feel ready to end the therapy. There's no pressure to open up until you're ready.
I offer a friendly, non-judgemental and safe space for you to explore your issues, worth through any problems you're experiencing, or just give you a confidential place where you can let your emotions run free.
I'm committed to making sure that everyone I work with feels heard, accepted and understood. My specialisms are anxiety, stress and depression, and I have helped people with a huge range of issues relating to that, including:
*Understand and address problems with anxiety
* Build and increase feelings of confidence and self-esteem
* Manage stress and unhelpful behaviours
* Challenge negative and intrusive patterns of thinking
* Explore and understand their thoughts, feelings and past experiences
* Become more motivated to achieve their goals
I currently offer evening and weekend sessions, along with weekdays.
I work from various counselling rooms across South and Central Manchester, and also offer video or telephone counselling.
I am available for weekend and evening sessions.
Counselling sessions are £45 for a full face to face session, or £30 for a full video or telephone session.
My first session
The first session will start with an assessment of your needs to see if we can work well together. It is really important that you feel comfortable opening up to me, therefore I give you an opportunity to leave with absolutely no cost or obligation to continue after we have completed this half an hour session.
If you feel you want to, the first session can be extended to the full therapy hour for £15.
If, after the first session you don't feel that I'm the right counsellor for you, I will be happy to make recommendations to other counsellors or services that might be able to help.
