About me

I am trained and experienced in counselling and psychotherapy with individuals and couples and specialise in the dynamics of relationships.
Relationships are central to our experience of being human. If our relationships are healthy and fulfilling then our lives are likely to be. I believe that the most important relationship is the one we have with ourselves.

Some people start in counselling or therapy knowing what they want to change and others just know that they need to speak to someone but are not sure why. This is completely normal.
I believe that we have the ability to make the changes we want to and to live the life we choose.

You may be experiencing difficulties in any area of your life, finding yourself repeating unhelpful patterns of behaviour in your relationships at home or at work. You may be feeling overwhelmed, confused and stuck.

I can help you to make sense of what you are experiencing, reach a greater understanding of why you are the way you are and to learn new healthier ways of being.
As well as talking therapy, I also use Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) and Mindfulness techniques to support you in creating a new and better relationship with yourself.

I work on a short or longer term basis depending on the needs of my clients.

I practice in Hebden Bridge and South Manchester.

Training, qualifications & experience

I completed a four year training and gained a Diploma in Transactional Analysis Psychotherapy at the Manchester Institute for Psychotherapy.

My experience of 20 years in the voluntary sector and my work in private practice with clients since 2008 means that I am able to work sensitively and creatively with a broad range of issues using a variety of therapeutic techniques depending on my clients' needs.

I am a Registered Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and am bound by their ethical framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy.

I am experienced in working with many issues such as anxiety and depression, stress, loss and separation, low self esteem, diversity in relationships and those listed below.

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.

Accredited register membership
