About me and my therapy practice

My hope for us all is that we will flourish in our lives - take the opportunities life presents and live life to the full in whatever way this means for us personally. Sometimes we need some help to flourish, either because we are not sure where we want to be in life, or how to get there. Sometimes due to specific barriers like unhappiness, depression or anxiety we get stuck.

Whether you are aware of a specific problem, or are experiencing general feelings of not being able to move on, dissatisfaction, or would just like some space to explore options, then counselling can be a really positive step forward.

I am a qualified therapeutic counsellor and offer both long and short term therapy for individuals using an integrated approach of Transactional Analysis and Compassion Focussed Therapy.

Counselling and psychotherapy is non-directive, I would not give you advice or tell you what to do. But I do offer a safe confidential space and the skills to help you explore what is going on for you, understand where issues come from, consider what you may want to change and how to implement these changes.

Our first session is an opportunity to ask questions and explore what you would like to gain from therapy and how we may work together. There is no obligation to continue if you do not wish to. 

My practice is based at the South Manchester Centre for Psychotherapy (SMCP) in Heaton Moor, Stockport, where I currently see clients on a Thursday and Friday evening. SMCP is very easy to get to from the Stockport and Manchester areas, with local parking available, bus services on the doorstep and is a 10 minute walk from Heaton Chapel train station.
