About me and my therapy practice

My name is Stephen Pattinson, head of Transformational Counselling. I am an experienced psychotherapist and CBT therapist in private practice based in Stockport, Burnley and Blackpool.

I have vast experience providing therapy in the NHS and charitable sectors. I can support with a wide range of issues including bereavement, trauma/abuse/relationship issues and specialise in the treatment of addiction for which I have written and developed successful treatment programmes for the past 18 years.

I am a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy and qualified supervisor and senior lecturer in counselling.

I have been practising counselling since 2000 and have an HND in counselling and certificate in clinical supervision.

Further to this, I have a Diploma in Online Counselling to be able to provide online counselling in a safe and confidential manner and able to connect with others online who may be unable to attend therapy due to many reasons, for example, physical/ mental issues that could prevent from accessing therapy.

Over the years, I have dedicated my work to break down barriers and celebrate that we are all different in our own unique way.
