I have been practicing as a counsellor and psychotherapist in the North West for over eight years, with around 2000 sessions therapeutic experience to date.  Over this period, I have worked for four different third-sector organisations (i.e. charities), an NHS counselling service and in private practice. 

Before training as a counsellor, I worked for the NHS as a community mental health worker.  In this role, I supported people with severe and long-term mental health problems in taking up new activities to improve their lives.  Prior to that I volunteered for Victim Support Manchester, offering emotional support to victims of crime and domestic abuse.

Currently I provide counselling and therapy to young people in my employment with 42nd Street, a well-respected Greater Manchester charity.

I also have a number of places in my private practice for adults and young people aged 14+.

Some of the issues I have helped people deal with and overcome are: 

  • Bereavement,
  • depression, 
  • anxiety,
  • OCD,
  • stress,
  • psychosis,
  • eating disorders,
  • cultural issues,
  • chronic physical illness, and
  • past experiences of abuse

I feel that I bring a warm and genuine, human touch to my work rather than hiding behind 'therapy speak'.  I can challenge gently when it seems helpful and am not afraid to be challenged by you - all your feelings are OK to talk about with me, even (and especially) the difficult ones.

At various times in my life I have had counselling and psychotherapy myself, to help me through difficult times or to work on particular issues.  I regularly attend training events, groups and workshops to keep my knowledge and skills up-to-date.

As is expected in my profession, I have regular clinical supervision to ensure high standards in my work.  I have recently trained in EMDR (Eye Movement De-sensitization and Reprocessing), and can now offer this very effective therapy at an affordable rate.
