About me

Life brings challenges to us all at times , often the support of our friends and family is enough to help us move through these life events Some of us however may find ourselves needing more help, possibly through feeling anxious, suffering panic attacks , depression or it could be that issues from your childhood or relationship difficulties impact on your day to day life. At these times therapy can provide a supportive, confidential and gently challenging place for you to explore your difficulties, enabling you to make sense of your feelings, thoughts and behaviours and to make the changes that you want so you can live a full and vibrant life.

I offer short term counselling and longer term therapy for individuals and couples , the issues that I work with include  :

  • Anxiety and panic attacks
  • Depression
  • Relationship difficulties
  • Low self esteem
  • Low confidence
  • Loneliness
  • Parenting challenges
  • Work related stress
  • Anger management
  • Childhood issues
  • Feeling like something is not quite ‘right’
  • Loss and bereavement

Training, qualifications & experience

I have worked as a therapist in private practice for over 10 years working with both individuals and couples.

My core training is in Transactional Analysis, having trained at the Manchester Institute for Psychotherapy (1998-2002). However, with additional training my approach has developed into an integrative one,meaning that I use a wide range of theoretial concepts and styles to meet the needs of individual clients more effectively and creatively.

My professional background includes working in the NHS as a Nurse, Midwife and Health Visitor and then working within local authorities and the voluntary sector as a senior manager leading services for vulnerable children, young people and their families.I am a member of the ITAA ( International Transactional Analysis Association) , UKATA ( UK Association of Transactional Analysis) and a Registered member of BACP ( British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy) and abide by the BACP's code of ethics. I am passionate about my own learning and development and regularly attend conferences and training.
I have regular supervision in line with BACP ethical guidelines
I am fully insured
