How we can help

Our Team

We have a team with a varied range of backgrounds. We are trained in a range of psychotherapeutic models and keep abreast of developments in our specialties. We receive regular training in awareness of diversity and LGBTQ+ issues, and we keep in touch and share knowledge with a range of agencies in Manchester.

We offer confidential help with personal issues affecting work, self-esteem, relationships, sexuality, mental health and general well-being. Sessions typically last 45-50 minutes. Our brief, focused model encourages people to make the most of each counselling session. We also offer workshops on a wide range of issues including managing anxiety; exam stress; procrastination; assertiveness; confidence and self-esteem; low mood; perfectionism and speaking out in groups.

What can I expect from an appointment?

Your first appointment will be an opportunity for you to say what is causing you difficulty and what you would like to be different.

You might already have an idea of what you would like help with, or we may be able to help you to focus on what you would like to work on or how you would like certain things to change.

You will be able to work out what is the best way to begin to tackle your problems. Issues you might discuss could include:

  • How many times and how frequently you might meet for individual sessions
  • What may be best worked on in a workshop or group
  • Which aspects can be helped by using our self-help tools
  • What can be done to help straight away and what may take some time
