I am a qualified BACP registered Psychotherapist based in Manchester City Centre. I work face to face and online with both short-term and long-term therapy.
My core training is a BSc (Hons) Counselling and Psychotherapy: Professional Practice, from University of Salford. Therefore, the foundation of my therapeutic approach is rooted in Humanistic Therapy. I offer empathy, non-judgement and unconditional positive regard in a safe supportive space, to support you in exploring and working through your issues.
I also have a Post Graduate Diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapy from University of Salford. Drawn to the evidence based ‘third wave CBT’ psychological therapies, I have undergone further training to specialise in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT).
My therapy sessions offer time and a safe space dedicated to you, to explore your experiences without judgement. I believe that you are the expert of your experience, but with my training and knowledge we can work together to help you move towards a more rich and fulfilling life.
I provide an initial free 15 minute telephone consultation, where we will discuss what you wish to gain from your therapy sessions and how we may work together to achieve this. This will also give us the opportunity to establish if we would work well together, before you commit to therapy. There is strong evidence that the therapeutic relationship between therapist and client is the main attribute towards a positive outcome in counselling and therapy.
