*****New clinic now running in Manchester City Centre********
Hello, I'm Keith, a counsellor and cognitive behavioural therapist.Â I have extensive experience working as a therapist in NHS specialist mental health teams and also run private clinics in Manchester city centre (Just off Deansgate) and in Thornton Cleveleys.
I tailor my approach to each client and primarily use cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) over 6-10 sessions, to help with issues such as panic attacks, anxiety and depression.Â I actively work with clients to help them identify their issues and their goals for therapy and work at your pace to achieve them. My approach tends to be a little more challenging than some of my colleagues and I find that this works well for clients who are 'stuck'.
I have a background in the uniformed services and have first hand experience of trauma and traumatic events, which enables me to fully understand issues of post traumatic stress (PTSD) and work effectively with them.Â I particularly like to work with anxiety disorders, such as Panic Disorder and Social Anxiety, as well as Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) and have a good record of success in tackling what can beÂ very challenging and life limiting conditions for clients.
I appreciate that most of us work during the day and lead busy lives.Â I am happy to offer evening and weekend appointments or therapy by video conferencing (Facetime or Skype etc) if this is your preference.
I have a therapy room local to me but am happy to travel and cover the following postcode areas: FY1-8.
