Everybody wants to get the most out of life but that feeling can be blocked for reasons you may or may not understand.

This can leave you stuck and feeling frustrated, anxious and alone.

I understand how and why that can happen and have a plan to help you resolve it.

Counselling and Psychotherapy have helped many clear the path and feel better when they felt unable to do so themselves.

Those methods are available to you here, along with valuable additional expertise.

I use a 3 stage process, combining therapy techniques to make you comfortable and guide you to where you want to be;

1 Understanding your specific needs.

2 Creating an approach individual to you.

3 Guiding and supporting you through the process.

Using Counselling alone or combining it with Psychotherapy or Hypnotherapy, we optimise your ability to recover quickly.

As a multi-award winning BACP, CNHC, NCH and UKCP therapist, clinical supervisor and Vice Principal of a UKCP accredited training college, you are sure of the highest expertise to help make your change quickly.

You can choose to make that change now by contacting me.

I work with clients who refer themselves, are referred by their GP, occupational health services or medico-legal providers, in Bolton, Manchester or Bury.

Appointment times include daytime, evenings and weekends to suit you.

I specialise in anxiety, generalised anxiety disorder, panic disorder and relationship issues but can help you with a much wider range of problems.

Choosing me as your Counsellor, means that you benefit from extensive additional training in Psychotherapy, Hypnotherapy and Psychology.

The purpose of that training is to help you achieve your goals as easily as possible in safe hands.

For many Counselling is enough, but Psychotherapy and Hypnotherapy are added benefits if you need them.

To secure your appointment, please click through to my website or contact me confidentially by phone or email.

I look forward to working with you.

I was initially taught by Stuart of Talking-Cure on a UKCP Hypno-Psychotherapy course to become a therapist. I would recommend him not only for his approachability and vast experience but also for his abundant helpfulness and unsurpassed knowledge. Now that I am a therapist myself, I can assure any prospective client or student that, quite simply, you can't go wrong.

What do you love most about your job?

Helping people in need to overcome emotional, thought or behavioural issues and improve their lives

What inspired you to start your own business?

I was a Lawyer and recovered from my own anxiety and panic attacks, I became interested in the therapy process and retrained, eventually becoming a full-time therapist, tutor and supervisor.

Why should our clients choose you?

Choosing a therapist is an important personal decision.
I was a lawyer and chose to become a therapist after recovering from anxiety and panic attacks with expert help, I know the journey to wellness because I have made it myself.
I took this new direction because I believe it's more important and becoming the guide for you is now the purpose behind my work.
