I am a professionally qualified and highly experienced BACP accredited Counsellor and Psychotherapist and an EMDR Practitioner. I have over 15 years post qualifying experience of working with children, adolescents and adults both in Manchester and in London at various well known treatment facilities.
I offer a safe, warm and confidential space for you to talk openly and freely about any issues which may be causing distress or concern in your life. It is not unusual for people to feel depressed and anxious at some stage in their lives. Sometimes this can be related to a particular life event, other times it can seem to come from nowhere. These periods can feel never-ending and intense and often result in feeling helpless and alone.
My areas of expertise include; trauma and abuse, eating disorders, attachment difficulties, relationships, anxiety and depression, loss and bereavement and self-harm. I also have an interest in psychosomatic illness, on how the emotions can affect your body.
Working with children and adolescents:
I have expertise in working with children and young people aged 5 to 15 who may be experiencing emotional, behavioural and communication difficulties associated with any of the following:
* loss and bereavement
* parental separation and divorce
* low self-esteem
* anxiety and stress
* eating disorders
* abuse or neglect
* adoption and fostering
Children and adolescents usually use play and art making as a way to express themselves and to work through worries and concerns. This can:
* promote emotional and social well-being
* build self-esteem and confidence
* explore difficult feelings in a safe space
* encourage self-expression
* improve communication and relationships
* encourage greater social awareness
* develop boundaries
* relationships and trust
* explore body awareness and personal space
Areas of interest

Whether it's relationship or family issues, anxiety, depression, affairs and betrayals, low self-esteem or any other issue, acknowledging that you may need to discuss difficulties can be a very daunting task, and taking the first step to contacting someone is a brave step on a journey that can ultimately provide much relief and be very rewarding.
