Member Status: Accredited

Member No: TB00P13

Location: Manchester

I am an experienced and innovative counsellor and hypnotherapist. Every person is unique. That's why I will work differently with every client.
I always offer a free, fifty-minute, introductory session. Here, we can talk about your issues and background; I will also explain the way that I work. We will then have a good idea as to whether we could work well together. The work I undertake is usually long term.

  • Qualifications & Experience
    I have a diploma in Counselling (distinction) and Hypnotherapy (distinction). I hold a BA in Philosophy from the University of Essex and MA in Creative Writing from the University of Manchester. I actively undertake continuous professional development. I completed "Existential Psychotherapy and Uncertainty" with Prof Ernesto Spinelli and "Technical Issues in Therapy" with Prof Susie Orbach. In January 2021, I attended a challenging and brilliant webinar on addiction, delivered by Gabor Mate. In October 2021, I attended the webinar on Freud and Pandemics, led by Prof Brett Kahr. In June 2022 I attended a webinar on the challenges our profession is currently facing, in the light of the SCoPEd proposals.
