About me and my therapy practice

Hi there, I am a psychotherapist based in Cheadle Hulme. l love working with people and supporting them to make positive changes in their lives. We all share the desire and drive to be the best person we possibly can and to have healthy, loving relationships. Sometimes life gets in the way and we get stuck in a moment, a thought or a pattern of behaviour. Life can be difficult and the way forward is not always clear. I believe everyone can benefit from therapy for personal growth, to live in the here-and-now and to better connect with the things that truly matter to you.

I trained in Integrative Psychotherapy specialising in Transactional Analysis, a theory of personality that looks at how our past can affect our present and how old belief systems can sometimes get in the way of making the changes we want. It is also a great tool for understanding what is going on when we communicate with others and for developing our own self awareness. 

I am also trained in Person Centred Counselling, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Stress Management. I will draw on these approaches as we work together with your needs at the heart of my approach.

I have experience of working with relationship problems including with siblings and blended families, cancer, anxiety and depression, surviving sexual abuse and bereavement. I work with both neurodiverse and neurotypical clients. Having worked in the corporate environment I am aware of the harm that work stress can have on our health and mental well being and the challenges of maintaining a healthy work life balance. I have insight into the games that can get played out in the workplace and the harm they can do. Transactional analysis is a great tool for understanding behaviour and regaining personal control.

Choosing the right therapist is important and is the beginning of your psychotherapeutic journey.  I offer a free introductory session so please get in touch. I aim to respond within 24 hours Monday to Friday. 

Practice description

I am based in Cheadle Hulme, Stockport and offer long and short term therapy.

I work with clients in-person and online.  I recommend that your introductory session is face to face where possible. 

I aim to offer a supportive environment where you can safely explore your own experiences, thoughts and feelings. 

I have my own dedicated practice room which is light and airy with plenty of room for social distancing if you are vulnerable.

Individual sessions are 50 minutes.  

My first session

If you would like to work with me please do get in touch. 

Choosing the right therapist is really important and you may want to talk to a few before you choose.  I offer a free initial session either in-person or on Zoom. 

In this session we will explore what it is you want from therapy and a bit  about  you and your personal history. I will share my therapeutice approach and there will be opportunity to ask any questions you have about the therapy.
