Get in touch
For nearly a decade, I have worked in the charitable sector in Manchester with vulnerable and disadvantaged adults, within settings such as prisons, addiction agencies, women's centres and further education. I am also a qualified teacher and absolutely love working with groups. In 2017, I was awarded a scholarship to train as a trauma-informed writing guide for Write Your Self, a global writing movement aimed at supporting women and non-binary people to reclaim their stories after experiencing trauma. I am the first guide based in the UK to be trained in the methodology.
I have a long-standing interest in trauma, inspired by the people I have supported over the years as well as my own lived experiences. I am also a published writer, and in 2017, I was runner-up in Mslexia's prestigious women's poetry competition. Receiving the scholarship fused these two areas of interest and passion together for me perfectly, and I have been running therapeutic writing groups in-person and online ever since. You can find out more about Write Your Self here.
I currently have a private psychotherapy practice based in Liverpool and online, and I use Transactional Analysis (TA) as my main way of working. I also volunteer as a therapist for the award-winning LGBT Foundation in Manchester and I have served on the board of trustees for Manchester Rape Crisis for the past 6 years, an incredible charity very close to my heart.
