About me

If you're struggling right now, you truly can be helped. Anxiety and depression are extremely common and in a world of pressure many of us are suffering in ways that don't fit a label and often others can't see. You deserve better than that and I built my practice to ensure hope and help is available to anyone.

We solve our problems best with the help of others and so I offer both my skills and my care. I use a very effective type of therapy called Transactional Analysis, which brings the great thinking tools of CBT and the wonderful positive care of Person Centred Therapy together in a way that can be so transformative that people are often amazed at the change.

Some (but not all!) of the areas I specialise in are:

Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD), Neurodivergence (Autism/ADHD/Dyslexia/Dyspraxia), PTSD and CPTSD. I'm Neurodivergent myself and keenly aware of the challenges involved. 

I'm LGBTQ+ allied. 

I'm naturally warm and supportive with an unusually broad life experience. My promise is to put you first, to care and to truly understand what's happening so that we can resolve your struggle. I see a broad range of people and never judge. No matter what it is, you're safe to talk about it here and get the help you need. So please, don't struggle alone anymore.

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 8 years, in London first then both Manchester and Hebden Bridge together. 

Member organisations

BACP
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.
