Counselling and 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.


Perhaps you are contemplating therapy because you are dealing with an anxiety related issue or are experiencing low mood. You may have had a bereavement or are going through family or work related difficulties. The stress of everyday life or the emotional pain from a past or recent trauma may be causing you to feel lost and unsure how to move forward. 


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. 


I am an experienced, warm and empathic therapist and will help you overcome your difficulties in a safe and non-judgmental space. I will facilitate change by working at a pace that is respectful to your needs as you gain new insights and coping strategies.
