Would I Benefit From Seeing a Psychotherapist or Counsellor?
We all experience painful feelings at one time or another in our lifes. Many feelings such as sadness, hopelessness, doubts, anxiety and stress naturally arise as part of living life. For instance, it is quite normal to feel stress or anxiety before an interview or exam.
Where it becomes a problem is when these feelings overwhelm you so much that it becomes hard for you to function normally in your day to day life. If you are stressed, tearful, have trouble sleeping or eating, lack confidence, have poor concentration, lack direction, have low energy and motivation, are drinking or using drugs excessively, have persistent low mood, having trouble controlling your temper or getting along with other people, then you should seriously consider psychotherapy or counselling.
About Nigel Magowan
I am a UKCP Registered Psychotherapist, and an Accredited Contemporary Psychotherapist(AccMCCP), and integrate Psychotherapy/Counselling with NLP, Life Coaching, Clinical Hypnotherapy and Ecotherapy. I am qualified to offer both brief therapy (short-term, usually between 6-16 sessions) and life coaching, as well as mid to longer term psychotherapy and counselling. I’ve been in full-time private practice since 2002 and have completed literally thousands of client sessions at my Manchester psychotherapy practice over the years.
I believe everyone is unique and therefore there can be no ‘one size fits all’ approach. I therefore integrate all my training, skills and experience to produce a treatment that is highly flexible and unique to you and your personal needs. I have received additional specialist training in working with addictions, anger management, insomnia and sleep disorders, treating IBS, managing pain, stress management techniques, and nature-based therapies (Ecotherapy), human development, psychopathology, teaching mindfulness, and Ethical Practice. I am an Anxiety UK Approved Therapist, and also a fully trained and accredited GHR supervisor and am currently able to offer supervision to complementary therapists.All treatment at the Manchester psychotherapy and counselling practice is carried out privately on a one-to-one basis, in a highly constructive, relaxed, supportive and non-judgemental environment. Treatment is usually comprised of 60 minute sessions, held at regular weekly intervals.

Please book an Initial Consultation session first.
Enquire about payment by installment, if you would like to reduce the session fee and spread out the remaining cost of your treatment over a number of months.
How can I be sure that you are the right therapist for me?
I understand that it is absolutely essential that you feel comfortable with your therapist. Which is why I offer an Initial Consultation Session with no obligation to continue.
This gives us the chance to meet face-to-face, take a detailed case history and discuss your problems, desired outcomes and the treatment process, in much more detail. Giving you the opportunity to ask any questions, before making up your mind about continuing with the treatment.You will get honest answers to any questions you might have and a realistic estimate of the number of sessions you may require. Also this initial session gives me the chance to determine if I can help you. If I don’t believe that I can help, I will not waste your time, and may refer you on to someone with more relevant experience.
If you would prefer to have a brief chat before booking the Initial Consultation session then please call me on 0161 881 4333.
How many psychotherapy / counselling sessions will I need?
As everyone is different this can be a very difficult question to answer without speaking to you in much more depth. For short-term brief therapy dealing with a very specific issue, you will usually need to budget for around 8 to 12 sessions. For more deep rooted, life-long, chronic, or complex issues requiring longer term psychotherapy and counselling, more sessions over a number of months will likely be required. Sessions usually take place weekly, but this can be negotiated to suit your circumstances. After our initial consultation I will have a much better sense of both you and the issues you want to work on, and will be able to give you a better estimate.
