Psychotherapy in Manchester

We are living in an increasingly advanced world: 24/7 working patterns and around the clock social networking often dictate how we spend our time.  We're repeatedly told that we can have it all. Whilst this trend provides us with limitless opportunities, the psychological fallout can be significant.

The pressure to balance work and family commitments or to live up to the ideals projected to us through social media can sometimes prove overwhelming. Often if we fall short of our own or other people's expectations of us, we can find ourselves struggling emotionally.

People come to counselling for all sorts of different reasons and from all walks of life. I see individuals and couples who either want to come to terms with past events or choose to focus on the here and now. Whatever the reason for having therapy, the end goal is usually to be able to move towards a more positive place. 

Perhaps you are contemplating therapy because you are dealing with a relationship issue, have had a bereavement or are experiencing family or work related difficulties. You may be feeling confused, anxious or depressed and aren't sure how to move forward. However you are feeling, there is no shame in seeking professional help. 

Your psychological and emotional health are as important as your physical wellbeing. Having  an impartial person to talk things over with can be easier than confiding in family and friends who may be too emotionally involved with you to give you a judgement free perspective. 

I am an experienced and empathic therapist. Exploring your difficulties in a safe non-judgemental environment, at your own pace - will give you an opportunity to see your situation through fresh eyes.
