Key Workers CounsellingMates in Mind

I understand that life isn’t always straightforward, and distressing events - whether recent or from your past - can impact on your quality of life and leave you feeling overwhelmed and out of control. Therapy can enhance your understanding of yourself, and improve your communication as well as your relationship with yourself and others.

I can offer you a safe, confidential space to explore your current situation and the impact it's having on you, and together we can work to facilitate any desired changes and develop techniques to manage any ongoing issues. As an accredited integrative counsellor, I am qualified and able to utilise a wide range of tools, modalities and techniques that can be tailored to meet your individual, unique circumstances.

I believe therapy is a very personal experience, and it is important that we are able to build a trusting therapeutic alliance together in order to maximise the potential benefits that you can gain from therapy. Therefore, in order to help you decide if we are a good fit, I offer an initial, free, no-obligation consultation, to give you the opportunity to explore what working together would be like.

Whilst I specialise in bereavement and loss, with a trauma-informed approach, I am able to support you with a wide range of issues, whether it be anxiety, depression, low self esteem and self worth, guilt, shame, anger or any other presenting psychological challenges you might be facing.

Based in South Manchester, I can offer face-to-face, telephone and online counselling, as well as therapy outdoors in nature. I can offer daytime, evening and weekend slots to suit your needs.
