About me and my therapy practice

I am a counsellor and psychotherapist based in Chorlton, Manchester.

You may be seeking therapy due to a specific problem or life event. You may be struggling with poor self-worth, self-criticism, shame or fear of failure. You may be feeling dissatisfied with life and wish to make sense of these feelings.

I am a warm and compassionate therapist and provide a space where you can feel safe and accepted and can speak freely, and reflect, without fear of judgement.

I am a relational integrative therapist, which means I tailor my approach to each individual and will employ different models of therapy depending on your needs and wants. 

My focus is on supporting you through our therapeutic relationship, to enable you to and deepen your understanding and acceptance of your self.

Practice description

During my training I provided counselling within an NHS early pregnancy loss counselling service. I supported women (and men) who have experienced individual pregnancy loss, recurrent miscarriage and fertility difficulties. I am also a volunteer counsellor at a women’s centre where I support individuals who are experiencing anxiety, depression, grief, loss and / or have had negative experiences in relationships.

My background is in social work, where I gained over 20 years of experience of working with adults affected by difficult childhood experiences, family relationship breakdown and the loss of attachment figures growing up.

I am a passionate advocate of therapy’s potential to support all of us to deepen our self-understanding and develop more compassionate ways of relating to ourselves and others, leading to a more emotionally fulfilled life.
