As a Certified Transactional Analysis Psychotherapist (CTA-P) I have helped people to understand themselves and their lives from their earliest life experiences to their present-day difficulties. With the principal of psychotherapy as relational, and the therapeutic relationship as central to the therapeutic process I can support you in exploring the life you want to live and the relationships you want to have.
I work with psychotherapy trainees and students, as well as with people seeking help for anxiety, depression, psychological aspects of living with chronic pain and with self-esteem or confidence difficulties. I also work with people who seek greater self-understanding of their lives or themselves. This includes people at different life stages, from those in their early adulthood to those in their elder years. Increasingly I work with people seeking support with various kinds of transition.

I am a counsellor, supervisor and coach with extensive experience providing both long term and time-limited therapy in the NHS, charity sector, and private practice.More info/Book a meeting
I understand that life isn’t always straightforward, and distressing events – whether recent or from your past – can impact on your quality of life and leave you feeling overwhelmed and out of control. Therapy can enhance your understanding of yourself, and improve your communication as well as your relationship with yourself and others.
How I work
My area of expertise is loss, and helping clients deal with it in all its forms, which includes bereavement, job loss, relationship breakdowns, loss of sense of self (which includes depression, anxiety, chronic illness, disability or medical / healthcare diagnosis) and all of the many other life changes that may happen outside of your control.
I am a specialist loss counsellor and supervisor working with a social enterprise contracted to Salford NHS Trust and have worked for a leading bereavement charity for many years as both a trainer and supervisor. I approach all counselling relationships in a trauma-informed way, and am able to support you with a wide range of issues, whether it be anxiety, depression, low self esteem and self worth, guilt, shame, anger or any other presenting psychological challenges you might be facing.
I can offer you a welcoming, confidential space to explore your current situation and the impact it’s having on you, and together we can work to facilitate any desired changes and develop techniques to manage any ongoing issues.
I am an accredited integrative counsellor, which means rather than working with you through the lens of one psychotherapeutic approach and I am able to utilise a wide range of tools, modalities and techniques that can be tailored to meet your individual, unique circumstances.
I believe therapy is a very personal experience, and it is important that we are able to build a trusting therapeutic alliance together in order to maximise the potential benefits that you can gain from therapy. Therefore, in order to help you decide if we are a good fit, I offer an initial, free, no-obligation consultation, to give you the opportunity to explore what working together would be like.
Based in South Manchester, I can offer face-to-face, telephone and online counselling, as well as therapy outdoors in nature. I can offer daytime, evening and weekend slots to suit your needs.
My fees are £55-£75 per 50 minute counselling or coaching session, and £80-£100 for 1.5 hours of supervision. Pay what you can afford. I also offer low cost sessions to students and people on low or means tested income.
If you would like to learn more about working together please contact me using my details below:

In addition I work with issues such as depression, anxiety, bereavement and loss, self- esteem, relationship issues, and work-related problems.
My core approach is person-centred, but I work in an integrative way. I have completed further training in trauma and work within the 3 stage trauma model to provide safe trauma-informed therapy.
I welcome working with clients from diverse backgrounds and different cultures, sexual and gender minorities and people with health issues and disabilities. I have a limited number of face to face appointments in Chorlton, and also offer online therapy via Zoom.
My usual fees are £65 per 1 hour session. I offer a no-obligation 1 hour initial session, which is an opportunity to meet me and explore a little if the therapy I offer is right for you. There is nothing to pay on the day. If you decide you would like us to start working together, I’ll ask you to pay for the initial session when you pay for your first counselling session.
I offer a limited number of spaces at a reduced rate of £25 per session for clients who are on a low income or means-tested benefits.

If you’re thinking about counselling, it’s likely that you’re feeling unhappy, stressed, anxious or depressed. Maybe you’re even feeling overwhelmed or burnt out.

Counselling can offer you an opportunity to explore your feelings and find a way through to increased self-awareness and a more fulfilled life.

In my role as counsellor and therapist I have supported individuals and groups to deal with a range of issues including relationship difficulties, depression, loss and bereavement, grief, special educational needs and disability, parenting, self-harm, sexual abuse, low confidence and self-esteem, and life direction.More info/Book a meeting
The main models of therapy underpinning my work is Transactional Analysis and Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy.
Transactional Analysis can help to explain how we become who we are and how this influences our thoughts, behaviours, relationships, and outlook for the future. Therapy provides an opportunity to analyse patterns of behaviour and communications, which can help to facilitate personal growth and change.
In my role as counsellor and therapist I have supported individuals and groups to deal with a range of issues including relationship difficulties, depression, loss and bereavement, grief, special educational needs and disability, parenting, self-harm, sexual abuse, low confidence and self-esteem, and life direction.
I have worked in a supportive capacity for many years helping adults and children in a variety of settings. My experience includes counselling and psychotherapy with adults and children in schools, and with children and young adults in residential care. As a qualified teacher I have taught in mainstream education and in specialist schools for children with additional needs, including complex learning difficulties.
In my work as a therapist and counsellor I adhere to the *British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy code of ethics and receive supervision in accordance with *bacp guidelines. I am a registered member of the bacp (MBACP.)

I am friendly and warm Psychotherapist, with over 16 years experience in the role. I provide a safe space where you can talk in confidence about difficult emotional issues.
I can help you make sense of painful feelings or troubling thoughts which may be stopping you from getting the most out of your life and work with you to recognise your patterns of relating to yourself and to others. I can offer you an opportunity to learn skills to break out of limiting patterns and ways of being. These skills become an emotional tool kit which you can take around with you for the rest of your life and which give you the freedom to make new choices and move forward in your life.
I have experience working with depression, anxiety, low self esteem, relationship problems, OCD, trauma, abuse, grief and loss. For those suffering loss, it may mean loss of a loved one, but may also mean the loss of a hope or expectation; not being where you had hoped to be in life.
I draw on several models of therapy, depending on your needs, but my core model is TA (Transactional Analysis) Psychotherapy. I offer face to face and online therapy (on zoom), long or short term therapy. My fees are £50 per session, although I also offer a limited number of reduced rate sessions for those on low income or benefits. You are welcome to email or text me to set up an appointment or to arrange an initial chat on the phone (or on zoom) to help you decide if you would like to proceed with regular sessions.
Some previous clients have written about their experiences of therapy with me:
‘A massive ‘thank you’ for all your support during some pretty dark times – I know it’s a cliché, but I really don’t think I would be where I am now without the impact of your counselling. You very definitely made a difference to my life’.
‘You helped me not be ashamed. You’ve made me feel comfortable with myself’.
‘I didn’t think I could change, but through therapy with you, I have’.
‘I’ve found the counselling experience with Nicola to be life-changing. It’s a vulnerable and daunting thing to come to therapy and open up to a relative stranger, but Nicola’s warm, non judgemental and understanding approach has meant I was able to find techniques to reframe, and, in some cases, totally overcome some of my biggest and most deep rooted fears and learned beliefs. I’m not the same person I was when I first started counselling and I owe a huge chunk of that personal progress to my experience in therapy. I couldn’t recommend the service more!’

My name is Fiona Gray, I am a Person-Centred Counsellor, a Fusion Therapeutic Coach, and a Clinical Supervisor. I provide long and short-term counselling and Coaching for adults from a wide range of backgrounds and diverse experiences. I offer face to face therapy in Chorlton, Manchester. I also deliver therapy online using Zoom Video Conferencing. I am a registered member of the BACP, I hold full indemnity insurance with Holistic Insurance Services, and I am DBS registered.

How I work
My therapy is personal to you. It is a collaborative process where we develop the therapeutic relationship together. I listen with the aim of understanding how your experiences impact your life, without making assumptions, analysing you, or trying to fit you into a formula.
I am an interactive person-centred therapist; I will be in there with you, without getting in the way of your thoughts, processes, and insights. You will feel supported and held by me as your confident companion through the more painful aspects of the therapeutic process. I will be your ally, as you connect with feelings you may have been avoiding or experiences you may have felt too difficult to explore or examine on your own.
Therapeutic Coaching is a combination of the best that Counselling and Coaching have to offer. It is Solution-focused, offering you a range of tools and techniques to help you make lasting positive change and find new ways to move forward in life.
Couples & Relationship Therapy
I work couple’s where one or both partners are struggling to cope with a high level of distress that has negatively impacted their communication, intimacy, and sometimes safety, leaving one or both feeling isolated, alone, or afraid.
I offer supervision based on the Seven Eyed Model of Supervision, first created by Peter Hawkins in 1988 and developed over 35 years. My approach to supervision is relational and collaborative. I trust your training, knowledge, and practice. I also appreciate as a new therapist we don’t always know what we don’t know. My aim is to support you and nurture your confidence and individual therapeutic style so that you feel effective and successful as you develop as a therapist.
My approach is sensitive, collaborative and non-judgmental. I do not give advise or set homework. The sessions are yours to direct as you see fit. I provide a safe place for you to explore your thoughts, feelings and reactions. We work together to find your own unique path to well-being and self acceptance.More info/Book a meeting

I provide a safe place for you to explore your thoughts, feelings and reactions. We work together to find your own unique path to well-being and self acceptance.
I work with people who are experiencing anxiety, who are feeling overwhelmed or burnt out. This may be due to recent experiences, a life time of difficulties or childhood events which have left them feeling unable to cope, or with unhealthy coping strategies. I help my clients to develop or regain a sense of agency and safety in their lives.
Before training as a counsellor I spent many years working as a doula, helping people to adjust to their new responsibilities and identities as parents. As a result, I often work with people who are struggling during the perinatal period (encompassing pregnancy, birth and early parenthood). This may be due to post-natal depression, anxiety or birth trauma, or could be as a result of losing a baby. I am an accredited Traumatic Birth Recovery – 3 Step Rewind practitioner, which is an NLP technique used to gently ease the lingering emotional distress caused by birth or perinatal trauma.
I also work with adults who have recently discovered that they have been struggling due to undiagnosed ADHD or autism. Whilst I am unable to diagnose these conditions, I welcome clients who have self-identified, with or without an official diagnosis. As a neurodivergent counsellor, I am particularly sensitive to how environment, experiences, and changes in circumstances can impact on feelings of safety and well being. As such, I use trauma-informed approaches to provide a calm, safe, welcoming space for you to explore your thoughts, feelings and experiences to alleviate anxiety and find self-acceptance.
I combine Person Centred counselling, which allows you to reflect and process what is going on for you, with CBT and coaching to help you develop strategies for positive change that you can use for the rest of your life.More info/Book a meeting
You may be struggling with a specific issue or pattern of behaviour and know already what you would like to talk about. Alternatively, you may be feeling anxious or depressed and need support with processing your feelings and emotions. Counselling may be able to offer a fresh perspective, or support you to make changes needed to get you to a better place. I offer space to talk and discuss current and past events.
My approach is driven through discussion with you, as we are all unique and there is no ‘one size fits all’. I combine Person Centred counselling, which allows you to reflect and process what is going on for you, with CBT and coaching to help you develop strategies for positive change that you can use for the rest of your life.
I offer an open minded, non-judgmental and supportive space to help you feel comfortable talking about difficult or challenging issues. Whilst I work with a variety of issues, I specialise in working with anxiety, and can effectively help you challenge and eliminate your anxious thoughts. I work with clients from all backgrounds.
I offer a complementary 15 minute consultation. This is an opportunity to get to know me and to allow me to gain a little more detail from you, to ensure that I have the skillset to work with you. There is no obligation to take forward counselling. I currently have availability so please get in touch and we can work together to figure out what you need.
Sessions can be held in person, online or through walk and talk. Fees are £55 for an individual session and £70 for a couples session.
Psychodynamic counselling can help us to look at our distress in a safe space with an other. Doing this with a counsellor allows us to have the distress held so that we can start to think about how things really are for us.More info/Book a meeting
My practice is psychoanalytically informed. This has a here & now focus. It isn’t essential to go back to childhood, it’s more about the patterns of difficulty we currently experience. We may notice symptoms that are causing distress or just feel something isn’t quite right. The focus is on our ways of relating; how we relate to ourselves and to others. This can be a specific focus or pattern (for shorter term work) or it may be more exploratory.

In my core approach to therapy I use Transactional Analysis and Integrative Psychotherapy and the way I work with my clients is known as relational and person-centredMore info/Book a meeting
Is the idea of change on your mind? Do you want to change something about yourself, or about something that’s happening in your life? Do you want to change feelings of stress, anxiety, depression, unfulfillment, lack of confidence, fear, anger, frustration or sadness? Are you facing a challenging or difficult decision? Or are you experiencing emotions that are confusing you, or do you want to explore aspects of any of your relationships, whether that’s with your partner, family, friends, managers or work colleagues?
Any of these experiences can bring someone to psychotherapy, and psychotherapy can help you to make sense of any “stuckness” in your life, or any emotions that you feel are inhibiting your goals or your personal growth. Transactional Analysis psychotherapy maintains that, “anyone can change”, and this is my aim for you, that through working with me you will be able to work through any unhelpful perceptions, mindset or mental blocks.
I have a first class honours degree in Psychology and I hold a Certificate in Therapeutic Counselling from South Manchester Centre for Psychotherapy, where I successfully completed four years training. In my core approach to therapy I use Transactional Analysis and Integrative Psychotherapy and the way I work with my clients is known as relational and person-centred, which means that I recognise that nobody knows you better than you do, and that this matters in your quest for change, whatever that may relate to in your life. Through empathic listening, astute exploring and gentle guidance I will support you as our safe, confidential and therapeutic conversations help you to draw on your own self-awareness and understanding to make sense of your feelings and your experiences so that you can work through any fears, anxieties or mental blocks to arrive at a more easeful state of mind.
Professional therapists are required to join a recognised regulatory body and I am a graduate member of the British Psychological Society and an individual member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy. I receive regular supervision from a senior Psychotherapist, I am fully insured and I maintain up to date professional development through attendance at conferences and educational and developmental events.
I have worked one to one with clients for a number of years both face to face and online (Zoom or phone). You can work with me face to face on Wednesday afternoons at the Counselling Rooms in Chorlton, south Manchester, and at other times I offer daytime and evening appointments by Zoom or phone.

I am a BACP registered counsellor offering individual counselling for adults from an established shared practice in Chorlton, South Manchester. I also work online using Zoom.More info/Book a meeting
I work with people who are feeling stuck and looking for help to move forward. This could be around difficulty dealing with emotions, self-destructive behaviours, self-criticism or feelings of not being good enough.
It could be being held back in life by anxiety, distressing thoughts or compulsive behaviours. It could involve uncertainty around questions of self-identity, relationships or life direction, or just a sense that things aren’t right.
Whether these issues are recent or more long-standing, change for the better is possible and therapy can help.
As an integrative therapist, I draw on several approaches in order to meet you where you are and work at the right pace and direction for you. My aim is to help deepen your understanding of how things are currently and consider how things could be different. I will listen, offer questions and thoughts and, where relevant, support you in making changes.
Starting therapy can feel like a big step and finding the right fit is important, so I offer a free 30-minute first meeting to consider working together. If you’d like to set one of these up, get in touch and I’ll get back to you with my current availability as soon as I can.

I can help you make sense of and deal with life, whether you feel depressed, anxious or alone, stressed at work or are struggling with relationships, divorce or bereavement.

Your experience of the world is unique to you and we will explore it in a way that suits you. It won’t all be hard work, there will be rewarding and fun moments too and I’ll be sure to go at your pace.
I work with adults, young people and children. I started counselling in 2007 for Childline and have experience working with adults in South Manchester and with 11-16 year olds at Place2Be.
