Kellie Barratt BSc (Hons) Psychology & Counselling, Diploma in Person-Centred Counselling, Currently in Advanced Clinical Training in Transactional Analysis (4 Year Diploma), UKATA Member.
I was introduced to Transactional Analysis (TA) through a workshop on ‘Shame’ and I was immediately hooked. Although I had engaged in lots of counselling, I had struggled to break the repetitive patterns that prevented me from moving forward in my life. TA reached beneath all of that, and finally I began to understand myself and started to feel joy.
My psychotherapy journey has not always been easy, but it has been the most rewarding journey of my life. I am committed to personal growth through open and honest communication. I enjoy being in relationship with people and witnessing others find their own truth, welcoming all emotions that surface in this process.
I currently deliver crisis intervention work to families experiencing domestic abuse / child abuse. I work therapeutically in private practice and within the criminal justice system. I deliver training in schools, councils and the NHS. I have previously lectured in Psychology at Salford University. I have experience of working with trauma, relationship problems, family dynamics, parenting, low mood, anxiety, negative patterns, joylessness, self-harm, unfulfilled potential
