What experience do you have?

I have a vast wealth of experience working with a variety of issues. I have worked for well established counselling services and the voluntary sector throughout Manchester for six years and have been in private practice for three years.

What types of people come and see you?

There is no ‘typical’ client. I have counselled people that come from many different backgrounds, ethnicities and religions. I work with both men and women and am also trained to work with children as well as adults.

I just need to talk, can I come and see you?

If you don’t feel as though you are in the depths of despair, just feeling a little uncertain about which way to go in life you are still able to come and see me. Counselling is open to everyone. I am here to help you explore and work through any issues that concern you.

How will counselling work for me?

I will provide a safe and non judgemental environment where you are free to discuss the difficulties you may be facing in life.

During this time we will work together enabling you to gain an insight and an awareness of how to deal with these issues.

Counselling is a journey that we will go on together, you will not be told what to do, you will simply be able to understand why you feel the way you do and by doing this will be able to see the options available to you, something which you may not have been aware of before.

I will help you to look forward and work towards living a more positive and satisfying life.

Does it work?
