I have been invited to do a talk about my work with children for BIG a mental health charity working in Bury, Manchester (thank you BIG staff).

The focus is on how through working with children it has helped me work with adults. It discusses the importance of containment when helping children with difficult, often embarrassing, emotions.

I have attached a podcast which previews the talk – I hope you enjoy the thick accent.


I am an accredited cognitive behavioural therapist with particular interest in working alongside people with depression. I am privileged in my work in the NHS with children, adolescents and their parents/carers. I am committed to improving access to psychological therapies. I do this through helping people link with accredited therapists. I help people prepare better for therapy so as to reduce premature endings and to maximise early gains. I also work with a very small number of clients in therapy and offer therapy at an affordable price. My qualifications also include a Diploma in Counselling, I also have the following qualifications:- RGN, RMN, RNLD, MSc, BEd (Hons). My main area of interest is mood disorders and adopting a compassionate approach in my work with people who find therapy difficult.
