Life Matters Therapy Counselling in Manchester - Hypnotherapy in Manchester

Home. Prof (old)

A warm welcome

I offer individually tailored Counselling, Coaching and Hypnotherapy services from my comfortable private practice in Central Manchester location , and across the UK via Online or Telephone sessions.

You have likely found me because your quality of life is being impacted by an experience or prolonged negative feelings. You might already know the root of the issue, or perhaps you need support to make sense of things. Either way, you have taken an important step towards feeling better. I can assist if you are feeling stuck, overwhelmed, unsatisfied, anxious or depressed; if you are feeling lost and need some direction, or if you simply want a better life and better relationships.

Every person is unique - this includes our experiences and our needs. I do not believe in a 'one size fits all' approach to therapy, I view the therapeutic process as an art. As an Integrative therapist, I tailor evidence-based theories, approaches and techniques in collaboration with you, at your pace, to provide the best opportunity for growth and healing. I am passionate in supporting my clients to grow in confidence to live an authentic life that is true to your needs. I am lucky that my job allows me to continue learning and developing professionally so I can be the best therapist I can.

I look forward to speaking with you. Karen.
