About me and my therapy practice
Hello, I'm Katie. I understand that making the decision to begin therapy can feel daunting. Once you start your search for a therapist, it can feel challenging to find the right person for you. I hope this information helps you to learn a little bit about me and what you can expect from therapy.
I offer one to one psychotherapy and counselling services to adults aged 18 years and over, at my private practice in Bramhall, Stockport.
The main modality I work in is Transactional Analysis (TA), which is a talking therapy. I will explore the links between your past and your present to understand how you relate to yourself and to others. This insight can help you to identify what isn’t working for you and the changes you wish to make to your life. When we are no longer caught up in events from the past or worried about the future, we have the freedom to live a fulfilling and positive life, which reflects who we really want to be.
I will encourage you to take an active role in therapy, so I won't tell you what to do and I can't simply fix your problems for you. My role will be to facilitate and support you to make sense of your experiences, using sensitive questioning and honest input to help you to gain in-depth insight into your thoughts, feelings and behaviours. This process can help you to uncover your own strengths and develop inner and outer resources to deal with the ups and downs of life.
Therapy offers a space to pause, slow down and focus completely on you. My aim is to provide a nurturing, open and honest environment, where you can talk about your difficulties without judgment. I will treat you with warmth, compassion and respect, welcoming you to speak freely without fear that your story will be repeated elsewhere. Together, we will find a way to make the changes you desire.
My practice is based in a garden office, which is separate from my home with private access. It is located half a mile from Bramhall village centre, close to the Manchester Eastern Link Airport Road (SK7). It is also within easy reach of Woodford, Hazel Grove, Cheadle Hulme and Handforth. It is easily reached by bus services, train and car. Free street parking is available nearby.
Video appointments are offered via the online platform Zoom.
My first session
I offer a free 20-minute consultation over the phone or online, via Zoom. This gives us the opportunity to meet one another and for you to tell me about what has brought you to therapy. You can ask any questions and assess if you feel comfortable with me. I will let you know what you can expect from therapy and check that I am able to offer the help that you need. At this point, we can proceed to arrange a further appointment, or you can have some time to consider what you would like to do. There is no obligation to continue.
If you like the sound of my approach, please get in touch. I am not always able to answer the phone, so please leave me a message and I will get back to you as soon as I can. Feel free to text, WhatsApp or email me - whatever works best for you.
