Are you ready to change how you relate with yourself, others and the world around you?
Perhaps you're struggling with anxiety, depression, fatigue or unhelpful thoughts. Maybe you’ve lost confidence, feel alone or struggling in an important relationship. Or perhaps you suffer because of performance anxiety, insomnia, alcohol misuse or how you express your anger. Whatever your reason, and however difficult things might be right now, making the decision to work together could be the starting point which helps bring about the change you want.
BACP Counsellor & Psychotherapist based in south Manchester.
I’ve always had more than a passing interest in well-being and mental health. Some years ago I chose to make this interest my profession when I left a corporate career to become a counsellor and psychotherapist. The reason for my decision was because I feel I can make a fundamental difference helping others to live as full and healthy a life as possible.
During my training, I was fortunate to have worked with a large number of therapeutic approaches. This allowed me to apply and observe which models produced the best outcomes for my clients in the shortest time frame. I found ISTDP to be unique, in that it was capable of producing lasting change, and the reason why I specialise in it today. I have also found it to be effective where past therapies may have failed and flexible enough to work across a wide range of problems, such as: depression, anxiety, trauma, eating disorders, medically unexplained symptoms, irritable bowel syndrome, chronic fatigue, interpersonal problems, obsessive-compulsive disorders, drug and alcohol use, emotional instability, personality issues.
As a Registered Member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP) I have met the strict standards required to be on the accredited register approved by the Professional Standards Authority for Health and Social Care. My continued professional development is important as it ensures I offer the knowledge and skills needed to deliver a professional service to my clients. I'm a member of a UK-based CORE training group in ISTDP. I'm also working towards the UK's Good Practice Guidelines for Teaching Mindfulness-Based Courses and teach mindfulness within clinical and workplace settings.
