Psychotherapy and Counselling

About Therapy

As a person-centred psychotherapist and counsellor with 14 years of counselling experience, I offer a secure, welcoming and confidential space in which you can be understood and valued, and where you can begin to find your own way towards how you want to be. I will help you to reflect upon and explore your challenges whilst offering an independent, non-judgemental perspective.

I work in a person-centred way with adults with a broad range of experiences including relationship issues, anxiety, depression, panic attacks, phobias, anger management, family issues, addiction(s), separation/divorce, bereavement, eating disorders, abuse, low self-esteem, stress and low self-confidence. I also offer counselling supervision.

During this uncertain time and with the arrival of the Covid-19 virus, I am offering Skype/Facetime and telephone counselling.

Ordinarily, I practice from Manchester city centre in a location 2 minutes walk from Oxford Road train station and 15 minutes walk from Piccadilly station. I also practice from the town of Buxton in the Peak District National Park.

Additionally I offer outdoor therapy in New Mills in the High Peak (10 miles from Buxton, 5 miles from Glossop), at the heart of the Peak District / in the foothills of Kinder Scout.


My Training and Experience

I trained at The Sherwood Institute in Nottingham and hold a Masters research degree in Humanistic Person-Centred Psychotherapy. I have a Post Graduate Certificate in Supervision and I also hold a BA (Hons) in Philosophy.

I have experience working with adults in a variety of settings and have focused experience working with adult carers and women experiencing distress and challenge. Alongside my private work, I have worked for Breast Cancer Care facilitating a support group for women living with secondary breast cancer and I have both lectured and tutored on the University of Salford's Counselling and Psychotherapy BSc and MSc courses.

I have a particular interest in the experience of 'endings' which may occur due to bereavement, unemployment, the ending of relationships and general life transitions. I welcome supporting clients through these processes.

I am a UKCP registered psychotherapist and a member of the BACP and as such adhere to associated codes of ethics.


One to one support

Psychotherapy and Counselling

I offer one to one therapy sessions for 50 minutes, usually weekly.

My fees are £53 or £48 for concessions.


Congruent support and support to be congruent


I offer person-centred / humanistic supervision, one to one or in group. I trained with The Sherwood Institute (Nottingham) to 'Teaching Supervisor' level; I am qualified to take on students in training and can incorporate teaching aspects in any supervision I offer.  
I use my broad range of counselling and psychotherapy experience in my supervisory practice and work with supervisees in a non-judgemental, holding and mutual way.  
My fees are £58 per one hour session.  


A different connection

Outdoor Therapy

I offer one to one Outdoor Therapy sessions at a location in New Mills in High Peak. This space offers formal paths and trails with a woodland aspect that allows for less formal exploration.
My fees are £53 per 50 minute session.
