A range of working environments and experiences outside of work have led me to appreciate the many challenges that life presents and the difficulties that we face whilst striving to grow.
I believe that human relationships which are empathic, genuine and respectful can form a basis for growth in any setting - it is the relationship itself which can help us change. I aim to be real, open and engaged as an active participant in the therapeutic work.
The feedback I get from clients often speaks of the quality of the relationship we build. People have said they felt it was a defining feature of our work together.
It therefore goes without saying that offering you a warm and respectful space is a priority, and I can assure you that what we share will be confidential.
I am a qualified counsellor, having completed a Post-Graduate Diploma in Counselling & Psychotherapy at the University of Salford.
As a Registered Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), I work in accordance with the BACP's Ethical Framework and meet or exceed the professional requirements for my ongoing professional development and supervision.
In addition to my private practice in Manchester and Todmorden, I provide counselling at Noah’s Ark Centre in Halifax.
Prior to my being a counsellor, I have worked in education and publishing, and I also currently work as a funeral celebrant.
If you would like any more information about me or the way I work, do get in touch. Your enquiry will be treated confidentially and will be taken as just that: an enquiry, and will not be viewed as a commitment to any sessions.
