About Me

Anchor 1
and Personal
I am a fully qualified counsellor who believes passionately in the power of therapy. I feel that every individual should have the opportunity, time and space to talk openly without the fear of judgement. I believe that the relationship between client and counsellor is vitally important. Our relationship will be built on trust and respect. I welcome people from all faiths, backgrounds, cultures and LGBTQ communities with a non-judgmental approach.
I undertake regular training and attend monthly supervision to enhance my practice and comply with BACP requirements. 
Work Experience
I have a thriving counselling practice based in Didsbury village which has now been established for 4 years and continues to go from strength to strength. 

I have previously worked for a counselling charity based in Manchester where I saw adult individuals on a weekly basis. Within this work I helped people who were struggling with anxiety, relationship difficulties, depression, anger and trauma. I have also worked within an NHS setting offering bereavement counselling; this has included bereavement resulting from sudden death, long term illness and child birth. 

Having worked in an educational setting for twenty five years, I have a unique understanding of the challenges this presents. I recognise the demands placed on those working within the teaching profession and the educational sector.
