Marie Naughton UKCP Reg. Psychotherapist, Certified Transactional Analyst, TSTA
I'm a fully qualified and registered psychotherapist with many years experience of helping people to make changes in their lives. I've had a counselling practice in Manchester since 1996. In addition to this, I've recently also started offering counselling and supervision from my new practice just outside Harrogate.
Over the past 20 years I've worked with people facing a wide variety of personal issues - see the list below for some examples of the kind of experiences I can help you with. An initial meeting with me lasting around 20 minutes is free of charge.
You might decide to come to counselling to address experiences which hold you back from fully enjoying and living life in the way you'd like. This could be connected to present-day personal matters or work-related problems. Maybe the difficulties date back to earlier trauma which still causes you distress or has a negative impact on your relationships.
Counselling gives you time and opportunity to reflect on how you want to make changes in your life and do this with support, instead of on your own.
In addition to counselling adults, I have over thirty years' experience of working with young people. Until recently I ran a counselling service in an inner-city high school.
I'm an experienced and qualified supervisor of counsellors and therapists, including those who specialise in supporting children and young people. I contribute to counsellor training programmes in the UK and abroad.
I'm registered with the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) and I abide by their code of ethics.

Supervision for psychotherapists/counsellors and trainee therapists - £50 per hour.
I've written about therapeutic work with young people in 'The Adult Is Parent To The Child' (ed. Keith Tudor, Russell House), and in The Transactional Analyst.
