About me and my therapy practice

I have been working as a therapist since 2010 and run a private practice based in Stockport. My main training and theoretical background is Transactional Analysis & Integrative Psychotherapy. The aim of psychotherapy & counselling is to help you deal more effectively with your past and present challenges and make decisions for your future that enhance your wellbeing. I enjoy the work I do immensely as I work with my clients to gain self-awareness and lead a more satisfying and fulfilling life.

I am a fully trained and qualified couples therapist and have been working with couples since 2013. I work with heterosexual & same sex couples who are at various stages in their relationship. Relationship counselling allows you to work through problems in your current relationship, look at how past relationships may be affecting your current one, and explore ways of improving and strengthening your relationships in the future.

I completed my Supervision training at The Manchester Institute for Psychotherapy and offer Supervision for both qualified & student counsellors. I have extensive experience counselling staff in the Occupational Health Division within the NHS also within local GP surgeries & other counselling organisations within Greater Manchester. In addition to this, I have significant experience working within Mental Health Rehabilitation services. I facilitate stress, anxiety, and resilience training for staff who work within the NHS. I provide clinical supervision for various organisations within Greater Manchester. I accept referrals from solicitors, schools, Universities, GP's & other organisations and counselling services.

To ensure I can help clients in the best way possible I enhance my professional practice by regularly working in supervision, therapy and participating in professional learning programmes.
