COUNSELLING & PSYCHOTHERAPY
IN SOUTH MANCHESTER
PROFESSIONAL, PERSONALISED, PURPOSEFUL COUNSELLING & PSYCHOTHERAPY
*** Update 01/12/19 - I have a full schedule at the moment and don't expect to be able to begin working with new clients until the new year. ***
I am a qualified and BACP registered counsellor based in South Manchester. I offer short and long-term counselling for adults, from an established shared practice in Chorlton. My working hours are Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday mornings and afternoons.
Each 50-minute session costs £45, with concessions available for students and others on low incomes. 30-minute first meetings are available without charge or obligation.
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, 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 navigate transitions and life changes and the confusion and uncertainty often accompanying these times.
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 a supervisor and attending continuing professional development activities.
