Sometimes our lives can throw us unexpected challenges which can leave us feeling depressed, stressed, sad and overwhelmed. We may feel emotionally and mentally exhausted. Sometimes these issues can have an effect on our professional and work life, our personal relationships and also cause emotional and sexual distances with our loved ones. Sound familiar?

Over the years we have learned to hide our true feelings which in turn can leave us with feelings of conflict with the things we say and the real way that we feel. We have begun to be untrue to ourselves. Eventually this will lead to a feeling of resentment towards ourselves and those around us.

There doesn’t have to be a reason - nothing needs to have happened - but sometimes things don’t quite feel right and you can’t put your finger on it.
We can talk it through. Once we have found what the ’issue’ actually is, you will begin to feel better and begin to live again in a more proactive and fulfilling way.

My area of work includes prisons, young offenders, Self Harm, relationship issues, sexuality, self worth, self image, abuse, addiction, bereavement and loss.
I have worked with Relate, private clients and large organisations including a BBC radio station as the ’Advice Angel’ and BBC TV programmes.
I have been lecturer of Counselling studies as well as work freelance for local authority’s and for private health care companies as a counsellor and psychotherapist. I also work from my private practice as well as working with the NHS, PCT and write features for magazines.

I offer a private, professional and confidential* Counselling, CBT, EMDR and Psychosexual therapy in a safe, and friendly environment with parking directly outside my Manchester andStockton Heath clinics.

In a safe, non judgemental and supportive environment, we will work together to explore your inner, hidden feelings and emotions, many of which may have been dormant for years.
