Hello and welcome.
If you're looking for private counselling in Manchester, whatever distress has brought you here you've already taken the first step by seeking help with a professional counsellor.
I work as a professional counsellor in Manchester and this page has some information about face to face counselling, but please also use the menu links above and to the left to navigate this site for more information and to help you decide if this is the right counselling service for you.
This is one to one, face-to-face private counselling in Chorlton, M21, from a dedicated practise room at my home, within walking distance from the nearest metrolink and bus stops.
Sometimes experiences in life can leave you feeling lost and confused, behaving in ways which you can't understand, testing your understanding of yourself, your relationships, fundamental choices and other aspects of your life.
When you seek counselling support with a professional counsellor, you're making a significant decision to give yourself some time and focus to begin to look at some of these issues.
Private counselling is a time just for you each week, to be listened to without judgement.
With a high empathy approach and belief in your inner strengths and abilities, I aim to support you emotionally and help you to address the issues causing you distress in a safe, trusting and therapeutic environment.
Effective person centred counselling provides a catalyst for positive change and this approach has been proven to be effective through many years of research including a broader positive impact on society.
I am a fully qualified professional counsellor with a proven track record of positive outcomes in helping people work through a variety of issues.
I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP), which means I work within the high standards required to be on the accredited register. These are ethical guidelines which inform my private counselling practise.
".. It seemed to help just getting to talk.. I seemed to be doing more things in my life.. feeling like I can cope better with things and feel more motivated.. I might have counselling again at some point, but that's because it's felt helpful.." ~ B, Manchester
