Counselling in Manchester City Centre and Online – Welcome!

Firstly, do you feel the need to be heard, acknowledged, and understood? Secondly, are you seeking help with difficult feelings or struggling with an issue where you just feel stuck and lost?

If so, therapy could be your first step towards receiving qualified, proven, effective, professional help. I have tried to include as much relevant information as possible on the site. However, if you encounter any questions not addressed here, please don’t hesitate to contact me, check out my counselling fees or learn more about me and therapy or how a therapist can help.

My name is Rob. I am a fully qualified professional therapist. I have years of experience and a proven track record of helping people with their problems. Importantly, I offer a safe and confidential space for this purpose. My primary aim is to understand you, to listen without judgment. To accept you just as you are. Rare in this world, isn’t it? I want to hear your untold story.

Some information about how and where I work.

I will use my skills and wisdom to aid you in finding a path through your distress and suffering. Working with me can illuminate a path through your difficulties. Together, through counselling, we can explore and discover new perspectives. We can find fresh ways of feeling and thinking. To know more about me and how I work, you can visit my about me page or about counselling information. Alternatively check my availability and get in touch. More than one client has said “this is life changing stuff”.  And it could be life changing for you!

I work from a dedicated counselling room in Manchester City Centre (Piccadilly, M1 2AP). The counselling space is easily accessible by all major public transport. I also offer remote counselling and email counselling by arrangement. My counselling room is upstairs, and is not accessible to people with some physical challenges. In such cases I will strive to make alternative arrangements (such as a home visit). Daytime and evening appointments are available.

If you are struggling, why not book an initial assessment to find out more about how therapy can help? It could be your life that is changing next!

Further information:

I am a Registered Member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP). This means I have met the strict standards required to be on the accredited register approved by the Professional Standards Authority for Health and Social Care.

The therapy I offer serves as a means to address a wide array of problems and issues. From depression and anxiety to bereavement and relationship problems. Many clients discover that they only require brief counselling of 3-6 sessions to enact significant positive changes in their lives.

Conversely, I am also happy to provide more supportive, long-term, and open-ended assistance. This may better suit the needs of some individuals. Ultimately, my goal is to help you resolve any problems or issues as swiftly as is appropriate for you. I do not want you to remain in therapy longer than necessary. Moreover, if I feel I cannot help you, I will be honest and work with you to find an appropriate onward referral path.

Additionally, my experience in facilitating many people to make positive changes in their lives is supported by the NHS approved assessment tool (CORE-OM). This therapy assessment tool demonstrates that my counselling/psychotherapy leads to reliable and measurable improvements in wellbeing, functioning, and resolution of problems/symptoms

Phew! If you made it to this point, well done! I realise there is a lot to think about and this will be one of those “sliding doors” moments where you decide to dive in or turn away.  If there is anything you are not sure about, or you have any questions at all, do not hesitate to contact me, Read my Frequently Asked Questions or read more about counselling or about me.
