Hello and a warm welcome to All Ears Counselling and Psychotherapy.
If you want a professional, friendly and supportive service in South Manchester, you’ve come to the right place. My name is Natalie James and I run the practice. I’ve had extensive training in Transactional Analysis Psychotherapy and you can find out more about me here.
If you’re looking at this website, then the chances are you may be seeking help with some aspect of your life or with the way you think or feel. Let me assure you, coming to therapy is a normal and healthy thing to do. It means you’re taking a positive step to sorting things out for yourself and your life.
Did you know that people come to therapy for all sorts of reasons? In my experience, there is a common misconception that you need to have suffered a terrible childhood or significant trauma to warrant therapy. Sure, whilst people who have had terrible childhoods and experienced significant traumas do come to therapy, they certainly aren’t the only reasons for coming.
Sometimes life can feel like a stuck record and you might not be able to put your finger on the reason why. The same old problems keep coming back or they just won’t go away. At other times you may feel a bit lost, stuck or held back from achieving your hopes and dreams.
Perhaps you’ve been depressed or experienced anxiety for some time or maybe you have other longer term mental health issues? Or it could be that you’re experiencing relationship or family problems, confusion about your sexuality, loneliness or existential issues? You may have simply lost your mojo with life. Whatever your reason is for coming to therapy, remember it’s a valid and important one and that you’ve taken a very brave step to seek out help.
Whatever your reason is, I can help you understand what makes you tick and get to grips with who you are.
My practice is based from a private room offering a talking therapy service to men and women individually, couples and groups in Levenshulme (South Manchester). The cosy room offers a confidential and supportive space for you. Here, you will be safe to explore your thoughts and feelings freely and without judgement.
Therapy sessions will offer you time for you so you can really get to grips with who you are. You will be given the time and space you need to explore any difficulties or issues you may be experiencing in a safe and nurturing environment.
Your therapy sessions will help you to develop your self-awareness and have a greater understanding of why you do the things you do. This is an extremely useful tool to have when making those really important, positive changes to your life. You can find out more about counselling and psychotherapy and how it can help you here.

I also offer a Low Cost Therapy service to people who are unemployed or on a low income. Details of the cost of this service are available on request and places are limited.
