About Me

photo2I live in South Manchester and have many varied life experiences that I bring to the counselling process.

I am a qualified, integrative counsellor, a MBACP and member of  BACP Coaching. I have a Diploma in Neuro- Linguistic Programming and a certificate in Children’s & adolescent studies.

I chose counselling because I believe it genuinely makes a positive difference to people’s lives. It enables you to understand what has happened to you and make sense of the here and now. I believe that counselling should challenge and help you move forward in your life. There is always room to be sad, cry, reflect and then decide: Where do I go from here?

My approach is not for everyone, and that is okay!

I am…

  • Open
  • Warm
  • Non-judgemental
  • Challenging (when applicable)
  • Practical
  • Humorous (when appropriate)
  • I am not bland in my approach and try to stay away from jargon!

My particular areas of experience are:

  • Loss of direction and hope
  • Self- confidence, image and body issues
  • Teenage issues
  • Attachment problems
  • Relationship struggles
  • Adoption and fostering
  • Parenting challenges
  • Post- natal depression
  • Supporting parents/carers of children with additional needs

I also help with problems of anxiety, depression, loss and bereavement.
