Hello and welcome to my psychotherapy and counselling website

Whether you are experiencing a current crisis or are exasperated with that ‘here we go again’ feeling, – then counselling or psychotherapy can help you to explore your problems and make positive changes in the way you live your life.


Maybe life as it is, is ‘good enough’ but you want to develop more insight, self-awareness and better communication skills. Or perhaps you have a hunch that if you just knew yourself a little better …. how much more fulfilling life could be…

I co-founded and practice from The Hale Village Therapy Centre – welcoming, discreet and convenient premises in Hale village, close to Altrincham in South Manchester, offering counselling and psychotherapy for a wide range of problems for adults, teenagers and couples. I also run workshops on effective parenting so look out for future dates in 2017.

Online options for counselling or psychotherapy are available, e.g. Skype, Zoom, FaceTime and also telephone sessions if preferred.

Additionally, I am a BUPA and Aviva recognised psychotherapist and I also offer professional supervision. In particular I am a PTSTA and so can teach, sponsor and supervise TA trainees who hope to become Certified Transactional Analysts
