About

“I started seeing Steph after decades of therapy with psychologists, psychiatrists, mental health services, hypnotherapy, self-help books and even bloody gurus! I can quite honestly say I got more out of our work together, have managed to make peace with my past, and completely turn things around.”

CLIENT, 2019


The Who… 

I’m Steph, a psychotherapist and consultant specialising in deep healing work.

I am trained in all aspects of mental health (e.g. stress, anxiety, depression and trauma) and have particular interest in dysfunctional family dynamics, complex trauma, narcissistic and emotional abuse, adult children of the emotionally immature, love and relationships, highly sensitive and emotionally intense people, and neurodiversity (ASD1/ Asperger’s/ ADHD/ ADD).

The important bit…

I’m a fully qualified, experienced, insured, clinically supervised and Registered Member of the British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP).

I completed my formal education in counselling and psychotherapy at The University of Salford (Master’s degree level BACP-accredited course) and am trained in Humanistic, integrative, spirituality, coaching and mindfulness-based approaches, with particular interest in the intersection between psychology and the healing traditions of Eastern and Western philosophies.

The Where…

I have decades of experience working as a mentor, trainer, speaker, therapist and supervisor in innumerable mental health and social care settings; have set up and managed several counselling services; and served as an Executive Director for a UK national mental health charity (MIND) and the Department of Heath (Healthwatch).

My writing has appeared in publications such as Therapy Today (BACP), Psychotherapy and Politics International (Wiley), Counselling Directory, The Counsellor’s Cafe Magazine and Psychreg, with a focus on transformational healing from emotional distress and authenticity.

I consult with clients all around the world from my private practice.

The Why…

Because good mental health isn’t a backseat issue! It’s not something we stick on our to-do list at the end of a busy day, nor is it something you either inherently have or don’t have. Your feelings are simply your inner guidance telling you there’s work to be done. Think of it as incoming emotional data. Will you continue to ignore, rationalise, deny or minimise them? Or will you take charge and step into a future of your own design?

The How… 

Figuring out a way forward can feel overwhelming but for us to take stock of our situations we need to understand how our thoughts, feelings and actions are affecting our lives. Which parts serve you well and which parts need work to move into the next chapter?

Perhaps you’ve already tried therapy but not felt it’s made much difference? I can relate.

Trust me, not all therapists are made equal and I’ve had my fair share of expensive disappointments!

I use my deep intuition, heightened perceptiveness and emotional sensitivity to draw things to our attention, helping you to explore your life in fine detail and really get the root (or roots) of the problem. If you’d like to understand how I work, you can learn more in my approach.

Counselling for Stockport

I feel grateful to have worked with thousands of individuals and couples using my own style of clinical, academic and lived experience, supporting my clients to navigate change, find meaning and evolve into the people they were always meant to be. Often people confuse therapy with advice-giving which couldn’t be further from the truth! The work cannot be done for you, or even done to you, and is more of a guide on the path to self-discovery.

I specialise in creating the conditions in which growth is possible, helping you to become your true self and break free from things holding you back. Our work together may be challenging (sorry..!) but the deeper you permit yourself to go the more freedom you will ultimately acquire.

I’m interested in finding out what’s happened to you, not what’s ‘wrong’ with you.

“Steph really is something special and can approach even the most difficult issues with warmth, patience and endless kindness. There aren’t enough words to express how grateful I am for Steph’s support and encouragement and the difference she has made to my life.”
