About me and my therapy practice

I offer a safe and calm environment in which you can explore the issues that may be troubling you; helping you understand yourself better and find resolution within. A first appointment would allow us to get to know each other and decide whether we both feel it would be helpful for you to continue with further counselling sessions. We would consider the difficulties you are experiencing and the impact these have on your life. I use a person-centred model of counselling and for those interested, I also work through creative arts media and offer play therapy for work with children, adolescents and even adults.

It is a number of years since I began working as a therapist, in the belief that I could help others find a more satisfying and peaceful quality of life; come to a fuller understanding of self; and improve their ability to relate to others and to their world.

My office is in Salford, and is on a main route out of Manchester City Centre. There are very good bus services from the City Centre. For drivers, it is about 2 miles from junction 17 of the M60 motorway.
