As a therapist and Life Coach at Trenpa Therapy, I view my job as being a very simple one, and that’s changing people’s lives for the better. I have many years of experience around supporting people to make positive and lasting changes.
Before becoming a Psychotherapist I worked as a qualified social worker for twelve years. During this time I have worked for various local authorities, and some of the large children’s charities such as the NSPCC and Barnardos. This has involved intensive work with both adults and children in order to support real and lasting change. As my carer progressed I moved into a more focused therapeutic role and I now hold both a private clinical practice and one within the NHS where I work within a Neurodevelopmental team.
During this time I developed a real interest in how to effectively lead teams and also in developing skills in order to work within extremely stressful environments. Within my private practice I work closely with other professionals such as nutritional therapists, functional GP’s, personal trainers, physiotherapists and other allied health professionals.
Using Psychotherapy and Life Coaching I can work to help you understand and overcome many of life’s difficulties. I have experience in working with people with issues such as stress, anxiety and depression, struggling with weight gain, phobias, panic attacks, relationship issues, childhood trauma, bereavement and addiction. I use Transactional Analysis psychotherapy to underpin my practice along which is supported along side other ways of working such as Mindfulness.
I use Psychotherapy and Life Coaching to help free people to live a more authentic life, a life where people have an understanding of their thoughts, emotions and behaviours. Being based in the heart of Manchester (I have offices in both Deansgate and Ramsbottom) I am easily accessible from the Greater Manchester area.
