    How I can help you

    Hi I’m Steve Jasmine, I offer private counselling sessions in the Manchester area and online.

    I offer you a counselling service that is -

    • Safe – confidential, a place of warmth and acceptance.
    • Human – connection with a real person.  I provide you with a space that welcomes issues you may be finding uncomfortable, traumatic or taboo.
    • Empowering – if you are looking to make changes in your life I can support you in this.
    • Informed - about working with LGBTQ+ people and alternative relationship styles

    I’m a BACP registered person centred counsellor. I’m qualified with a Post Graduate Diploma in Counselling and Psychotherapy and a BSc in Psychology. I welcome and am experienced in working with clients from all kinds of backgrounds.

    I'm experienced in working with a range of issues including anxiety, gender identity, relationships, depression, sexuality, stress, low confidence, identity, substance and alcohol use, bereavement, abuse, suicidal thoughts, disability, spiritual issues, compulsive behaviour and self harm.

    What to expect

    During our 15 minutes consultation we can talk briefly about some of the reasons you are considering counselling, I will hold a safe space where you can talk about what it is you want to talk about and I will try to listen from my heart, head and spirit. From this, we can build a therapeutic relationship where you can process what you need to.  After 50 minutes we finish and if you wish you can book more sessions.

    I'm available weekday afternoons and evenings.

    About me

    I have many years experience working with people experiencing emotional distress as a counsellor, support worker and aromatherapist.

    I try to be aware of my privilege and how this might affect our counselling relationship.

    Finding a counsellor I could trust and be understood by has helped me to find my way through stressful and traumatic life events, to get in touch with my own strength, and to connect with who I really am.  I am passionate about counselling and what I have to offer my clients.

    Having our sexuality, gender or relationship misunderstood by a counsellor can be a harmful and all-too common experience for those of us who are outside the mainstream. I provide a place where people of all genders and sexual orientations, those who practice kink, and those in or exploring non-monogamous relationships can be understood, feel safe and be heard.
