Registered MBACP, Manchester, Transactional Analysis

About me

I am a naturally warm caring person with a very broad life experience. I currently have a Masters level qualification (4 years) in Psychotherapy and work out of two different practices across Manchester.

My approach to therapy is to put the individual first, to take care and make effort to truly understand where you're coming from so that together we can help resolve your pain. I work with a broad range of people and do not judge - no matter the nature of your struggle. My goal as a therapist is to bring care, understanding and resolution to as many people as I can. Therapy is a shared process and so we do the work together, safely and with your needs leading us

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a Postgraduate Diploma in Advanced Transactional Analysis from an Integrative Perspective. (4 years, Masters Level  / level 7). I have been practicing for five years, in London first then Manchester.

Member organisations


British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
