Welcome to Altrincham counselling Centre

I have been working in private practice for 16 yrs, providing therapy in a number of different settings and organisations such as Bess counselling, Trafford Bereavenment Services, Little Hulton Women and family Centre, Manchester hostels for the homeless, (working with Refugees).  The Kingsway School (students & staff). Heads up CIO providing psychological first aid to victims of trauma ( Manchester bombing).  The world famous Chiva Som retreat Thailand providing therapy, mindfulness and relaxation techniques to staff and guests from around the world.

I am fully qualified, insured and BACP registered. My theoretical approach is integrative which simply means I use a combined approach to psychotherapy by bringing together elements of specific therapies so as to tailor the sessions to the needs of each client. I firmly believe that one size does not fit all!

I provide a safe space whereby clients can explore, at their pace, issues that are troubling them. The service is confidential, caring, compassionate and none judgmental.

My role is to help you make sense of situations you may feel you are in and the feelings you may have. If appropriate we can look at patterns of behaviour, thought process and also explore early life experiences that may have a bearing on your present day responses. I am not hear to tell you what I think you should do.

Often when experiencing difficult times in our lives, we can lose sight of our own inner resources, moreover we may not even realise that we have any inner resources. My role is to empower you to get in touch with your own, thus enabling you to perhaps make changes that once seemed impossible.

‘SOMETIMES things happen to us that we just don’t understand. These things can SOMETIMES be the doors and windows to our destiny’.
