About me and my therapy practice
Counselling helps when you have problems, big or small, that interfere with your life. I work with you as a person in your own circumstances or situation. I want to help.
I offer Person Centered counselling because it is widely used for a number of difficulties that many people experience in their daily lives. This means I have a humanistic and holistic approach. There have been many advances in counselling including Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) and Mindfulness. I integrate these and other therapeutic resources into my work so you can be confident in being able to have access to a wide range of solutions that might work for you.
I have a strong interest for learning and a particular interest in the recent developments in neuro-psychology and philosophy of mind, including spiritual aspects of psychological health and wellbeing.
I volunteer as a trustee for Manchester Mind, where I am currently Chair, and I am involved in the partnership of local Mind organisations called Mind in Greater Manchester. Together we work to ensure people experience better mental health and support people with their mental health to live well in their communities and at work.
I have an established private practice based in Manchester and over 12 years experience as a counsellor.
The coronavirus pandemic has meant that we are learning how to build resilience and positively adapt to changing circumstances. I now offer sessions using Skype, Zoom, Microsoft Teams, WhatsApp and on the telephone.
I work with people who are experiencing difficulties with their mental health, including anxiety and depression. I am a specialist in relationship work and although I am a qualified couples counsellor I am only working with individuals during this time.
I also specialise in helping people with health conditions, for example chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia and long term Covid.
