What to Expect

A preliminary assessment appointment enables you to discover if you feel comfortable with me, share what worries you, ask questions, understand confidentiality, and determine if therapy may assist you. Please use a contact option on the right to arrange a preliminary assessment session in Manchester or Stockport.

Counselling

Counselling centres on listening to you, and supporting you. You decide which issue regarding your early years or adulthood you discuss. The aim of counselling is to enable you to talk about a difficulty and discover a solution that is right for you.

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) (England and Wales) recommends counselling for depression.

Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT)

DBT evaluates your understanding of your thoughts and feelings. It facilitates your discovery of helpful reactions to your life. DBT hopes to help you enhance and maintain your coping abilities.

Psychotherapy

Psychotherapy focuses on you, and you obtaining insight into the difficulties you face. It explores your thoughts, feelings and significant events in your life. Psychotherapy intends to help you develop or discover appropriate methods of managing.

Transactional Analysis (TA)

TA focuses on the modes you use to communicate with yourself and others. It considers the effect of your pre-conscious life strategy and how to improve it. Transactional analysis aims to help you acknowledge your value and capacity to change.
