About Me

Hi, I’m Ailsa. I’m a Creative Psychotherapist, Chartered Psychologist and wellbeing coach based in Stockport, UK.

I offer Psychological therapy with a difference, implementing the right combination of creative, body-mind and other techniques to suit each client. A positive, warm and supportive client relationship is at the heart of my work, and I ensure that you, the client, will feel safe and supported throughout.

I have over 8 years professional experience working with individuals and groups using motivation and lifestyle counselling, creative, active, mindful and body-oriented methods and Dance Movement Psychotherapy. I am registered and accredited with the Association for Dance Movement Psychotherapy UK (RDMP), which is a member of the Humanistic Integrative Psychotherapy college of the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP). I am also a Chartered Psychologist with the British Psychological Society (CPsychol).

I am experienced in working with a range of problems and issues including but not limited to:

-depression
-anxiety
-stress
-changing habits
-confidence & self-esteem
-eating disorders/nutrition issues
-body image
-obesity/weight management
-athletic concerns
-psychotic illness
-developmental disorders
-relationship and family problems
-career dilemmas
-parenting/caring stress
-managing family lifestyle

Together we will work towards self-awareness, expression, insight and self-determination, through bespoke therapy, tailored for each individual. As each person is unique, this is better for clients than a one-size-fits-all approach. This is known as an Integrative, Humanistic orientation to therapy.

By using creativity, mindfulness and body awareness, we can recognise a completely new perspective, uncover powerful insights on your problems, and gain changes in behaviour. Through 'getting to the root' of your own internal mechanisms in this way, you can manage problems effectively now and in future, moving more authentically through life.

Many clients come to me initially seeking a 'magic bullet' or an external solution to their problems. While some practitioners may promise to have 'all the answers', I will encourage you to develop your own internal awareness as the most important signpost, and address the mechanisms underlying your problems. A client-centred ethos lies at the heart of this way of working, so that you always feel safe and in complete control of the pace, process and focus of the work.
