Welcome to Transform Therapy

Engaging, Enabling, Empowering you to make positive life choices

Welcome, and thank you for visiting Transform Therapy. My name is Pamela McKechan, I am a Psychotherapist & Trainer, working with children, young people, adults & groups.

As a counsellor my role is to provide space and guidance to help you on your journey of self discovery;

To enable you to examine your life and make new, meaningful choices within it. I am a Play Therapist and CBT Psychotherapist which means I have an empathetic, non-judgemental approach and provide emotional support. I offer a chance to reflect on the difficulties and problems you are experiencing, in a safe and confidential environment, with someone from outside your usual support network. Together we can explore your situation in a way that leads to fresh perspectives and an enhanced understanding of yourself. Counselling is not about giving you solutions it is about empowering you to make your own changes.

Speak in Confidence

Therapy takes place in a safe space, where you can meet with someone who will listen with sensitivity and empathy – and without judgement. In the therapy space thoughts and feelings can be expressed freely and in confidence.

A problem shared

Trouble with a relationship; anxiety or panic attacks; mood swings or depression – many people face difficulties in their everyday lives that can be hard to get on top of. Therapy gives us a set of tools we can use to help gain a better understanding of what’s causing these problems – and how you can move towards managing or resolving them.

Make better, healthier new choices

Working together I can help you gain greater insight into the difficulties you are facing, help you understand why you act or react to them the way you do, and see how you can start to make better, heathier choices moving forward.
