Hi, I'm Stuart. I'm a trainee psychotherapist, in the fourth and final year of my psychotherapy training at the Manchester Institute for Psychotherapy. I'm a member of the UKCP and covered by their ethical guidelines. My decision to train as a therapist, which began with my own personal therapy nearly 10 years ago, is the fruit of a life-long interest in psychoanalysis and human nature.

I get a great deal of fulfillment from helping clients to understand themselves and their life situations. No matter how self-aware we are, we can't see ourselves as others see us. I'm fascinated by the way people think and feel. For me, everyone is uniquely of interest. It gives me great satisfaction to be involved in another person's self-discovery. But greater even than that is the satisfaction of helping another person to overcome their difficulties and live their life as they want to.

This job is my vocation. I spent years in a variety of jobs that didn't truly reflect my interests or play to my strengths. It's through my own therapy journey that I've understood that it's possible to break out of my negative assumptions about work, and build myself a different career, one which really means something to me, and which makes a real difference to my clients.

Anyone looking to undertake therapy should choose the therapist that fits them best. I'm very happy to arrange an initial free-of-charge telephone consultation to see if we could work together effectively. I can promise that any client who approaches me for therapy will be treated with respect, honesty and understanding. I take my responsibilities in this role very seriously, and I'm deeply committed to my clients' well-being.
