Our Principles


We aim to provide effective therapy as cheaply and quickly as possible. We will not encourage you to commit to a block of sessions and in fact, are only too happy if you stop therapy earlier than expected because you are cured!


We offer a confidential service. We will not discuss you or your issues with anyone - including the media. Dr Mann is interviewed a lot in the media and often asked about unusual cases - but she will never talk about the more unusual problems due to confidentiality.







The MindTraining Clinic offers private, one-to-one training to clients (adults and children) who want to learn to deal with phobias, panic attacks, trauma, depression, stress and other conditions. We specialise in EAP workplace counselling and in getting people back to work too.


























The Director is Dr Sandi Mann, a Chartered (Academic) Psychologist and Associate Fellow of the British Psychological Society. She is Accredited BABCP CBT Therapist and an Accredited EMDR Practitioner (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprogramming).


She has written over 25  psychology books, including Overcome Phobias and Panic Attacks and appears regularly in the media as a psychology expert. She teaches and is Module Leader on MSc Applied Clinical Psychology at the University of Central Lancashire


She is also Clinical Lead Mental Health Services for Sparta Health

Psychological First Aid

Following the horrific terrorist attack at Manchester Arena, Dr Sandi has been involved in Psychological First Aid Training. She is working with the fantastic Heads Up CIO who have trained over 100 mental health professionals in the NorthWest and has also undertaken NHS Psychological First Aid training so is part of various teams able to offer immediate first response in the event of any major traumatic event in the region. You can read more about this work in an article she wrote for BACP publication Counselling At Work.

I am often asked how to tell if a therapist

is legit, given that anyone can call

themselves a counsellor or therapist. Or,

how to tell the good ones from the poor. 

After all, no one wants to waste their money.


Key questions to ask:


  • Are they a member of a professional body? 

  • Do they have a qualification that is accredited with a bona fide organisation?

  • Are they recognised widely as an expert in their field (evidenced by publications, books, media appearances etc)
