COUNSELLING & PSYCHOTHERAPY
IN SOUTH MANCHESTER
PROFESSIONAL, PERSONALISED, PURPOSEFUL COUNSELLING & PSYCHOTHERAPY
I am a BACP registered counsellor based in South Manchester. I offer individual counselling for adults from an established shared practice in Chorlton. I also offer online meetings using Zoom.
Each 50-minute session costs £50, with a limited number of concessionary spaces available for people on low incomes. If you would like to discuss any questions you have before arranging a first session, I offer a 20-minute initial meeting, in person or via Zoom, without charge. Get in touch below if you'd like to set up a meeting or if you'd like to discuss any questions by email.
My working hours for in-person meetings in Chorlton are Thursday & Sunday daytimes. My working hours for online meetings are Tuesday, Wednesday & Friday daytimes. (Current availability - Wednesdays at 12.30pm / Thursdays at 11.40am & 3pm - for online meetings only for the present time).
HOW COUNSELLING CAN HELP
If you're considering counselling and psychotherapy, it's likely that you're unsatisfied with some aspect of your life. You may have a clear idea of how you would like things to be different but have been unable to make the changes you'd like. Alternatively, it might be hard to pin down exactly what the problem is.
When we feel trapped or overwhelmed by anxiety or stress, stuck in low mood or depression, or are struggling to keep control of anger or other emotions, it can be difficult to see things clearly and make change happen.
Whether your problem is a recent development or a more long-standing and familiar presence in your life, positive change is possible and counselling can help.
Counselling offers a consistent and confidential space to approach and consider difficult or daunting issues, with the support of someone outside of your personal situation. As well as bringing more clarity to current problems and how things could be different, counselling can strengthen your personal resources and ability to manage difficulties, allowing for greater possibilities in your life.
My intention is to provide an ethical, engaged and committed counselling relationship, in which you can take stock, explore and find the other side of life problems, feeling better equipped for the future.
I have experience of working with clients dealing with problems relating to depression, anxiety, work-related stress, bereavement, anger, relationship issues, low confidence/self-esteem, the after-effects of abuse/violence, and other issues.
I have also worked to help clients who are reconsidering aspects of identity, lifestyle, or belief systems, or navigating transitions and life changes, and the challenges and uncertainty which can come along with this.
I draw upon ideas and techniques from several established therapy approaches, depending on the needs and preferences of my clients. I encourage collaboration and feedback to maintain relevant and constructive counselling work.
I have a BSc in Counselling and Psychotherapy: Professional Practice and am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy, abiding by their Ethical Framework. I regularly review and update my practice by working with supervision and attending continuing professional development activities.
