About me

I have 25 years experience of counselling and psychotherapy with adults, both individuals and couples, groups and young people, with very positive outcomes. I am a Certified Transactional Analysis Psychotherapist, a Training and Supervising Transactional Analyst, I hold an MA in TA Psychotherapy, and I am a qualified integrative counsellor. I have 15 years experience as a supervisor, and 20 years experience as a trainer. I am registered with UKCP (UK Counselling and Psychotherapy) UKATA (UK Association fir Transactional Analysis) EATA (European Association for Transactional Analysis) I am currently a member if the Training and Accreditation Standards  Committee for UKATA, as well as UK exams supervisor for EATA. I work in private practice in Tadcaster, North Yorkshire, within easy reach of York, Leeds, Harrogate, Wetherby, Ripon and Selby.

My qualifications:

  • TSTA (Teaching and Supervising Transactional Analyst)
  • CTA (Certified Transactional Analyst (Psychotherapy))
  • MA Transactional Analysis Psychotherapy
  • BA (hons) in Counselling Studies (Leeds University)
  • Diploma Transactional Analysis (TA) psychotherapy (3 years of study)
  • Certificate in Counselling (BACP accred)

I am deeply interested in the relationship people have with themselves and with others, and in understanding how this began. Early psychological wounds, relational and other traumas may continue to present in beliefs about self, others and the experience of being in the world.  This may present somatically - through the body - or as anxiety, depression, difficulty in relationships, obsessions and compulsions, poor self esteem.  Attending to both mind and body is a central element in my practice.

The main approach I use in my practice is Transactional Analysis (TA) psychotherapy. See  for more information. I also integrate learning and experience from other approaches to suit the individual.

I have practised as a counsellor and psychotherapist since 1997, working with adults - individuals and couples - and young people. The breadth and depth of my experience enables me to work responsively and flexibly in range of ways, individually tailored to each different person I work with. This could be:

* Shorter-term, CBT-type focussed work dealing with specific issues such as panic attacks and anxiety based problems
* A coaching approach for managers and professionals facing workplace problems for example
* Our work together could be longer-term dealing with deep-rooted personal issues, exploring repeating patterns and connections between present feelings and past life events and experiences.

Counselling and psychotherapy can help if:

  • You feel anxious or depressed
  • You are experiencing relationship issues or family issues
  • You lack confidence or self-belief
  • You notice repeating patterns of difficulty in relationships, sexual or otherwise
  • You have suffered a bereavement or loss
  • You suffer from a phobia
  • You have experienced a trauma
  • You want to develop your self-awareness
  • You want to identify and fulfil your potential
