My Story

Hello and welcome to my website of therapywithian.com 

My practice is located 10 minutes away from Newcastle Under Lyme or 15 minutes from Crewe.  In addition I am able to travel when requested and arranged.

I am a Registered and Accredited Psychotherapist with membership of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).  In addition I am a qualified EMDR Psychotherapist having completing all Parts of EMDR UK and Ireland Accredited Training.  I have been working therapeutically for the past 19 years with a range of both adult and child clients in range of settings that has included  a Forensic Therapeutic Community and also working with and providing assessments for Looked After Children.  My work has also including the voluntary sector and working with Employee Assistance Programmes (EAP's).  I am an experienced Psychotherapist , Trainer and also a qualified clinical supervisor.

The decision to enter into therapy can be a daunting one, and I offer a warm, safe and confidential space while we work together in supporting you to find a way forward.  My experience leads to my core belief that creating a trusting and effective therapeutic relationship is key in supporting you to move forward.

I am experienced in working with short term Counselling and long term Psychotherapy, both on a 121 basis or with groups.  I am able to provide Psychological Assessments and reports that would also include a clinical formulation that would underpin and direct the work to be undertaken.  I do offer trauma focused Psychotherapy, namely EMDR which is the NICE guideline recommendation.
