The cost of counselling is an investment in your most priceless resources - your long term happiness and peace of mind. Counselling can help you overcome your biggest emotional challenges and restore your personal wellbeing. The gym is for a healthy body. Therapy is for a healthy mind.
I can appreciate how difficult it can be to engage in counselling for the first time or with a new counsellor. I recommend that we arrange an initial session to identify and explore the issues and concerns you may be experiencing, and your hopes for how counselling may help you.
Reflect, Recover. Refocus. Anxiety, Stress, Depression, Addiction, Bereavement, Relationship Problems. I offer CBT/Solution Focused counselling in Leeds. I am committed to helping you work towards a more successful way of living. Consultation room/Skype sessions available.
How can counselling help?
- Raise self-awareness and self-esteem
- Re-motivate and re-energise
- Promote personal and professional development
- Help to develop emotional wellbeing
- Challenge persistent low moods, anxiety and stress
- Formulate plans and Achieve potential
Counselling aims to address the cause of the problem rather than just treating the symptoms.
Confidential support. You may decide to come for counselling because of any issue that is of importance to you. Whatever the reason, you will find one of the main benefits of counselling is to be able to explore and discuss any issue within a safe, secure and confidential environment. I will help you to acquire strategies that can be effective in challenging and modifying faulty patterns of thoughts. This generally results in improved mood, a more positive attitude and an increased level of competence.
I work as a counsellor in Leeds City Centre. Sessions can be booked anytime between 10am & 8pm Monday to Friday. Late sessions available for those with work, study or childcare commitments. I can also offer Skype sessions. I help people with a wide range of problems as outlined above. Saturdays now available 12-4pm in Prospect House.
Face to face counselling can work well within a trusting environment and I seek to create that in a non-judgemental way for all my clients.

I offer long-term and short-term work after discussion with potential clients about their needs from counselling. It may be that certain clients find personal results within a short space of time while others find that counselling continues much longer, the journey for everyone is always very different.
I use an eclectic approach to counselling which means I draw on a range of different models including person-centred, humanistic, Solution Focused approaches.
Humanistic therapy tends to be more optimistic, basing its treatment on the theory that individuals have a natural inclination to strive toward self-fulfillment. The central principle of CBT is we can change our feelings and increase our quality of life through changing our thoughts and behaviour. The idea of the therapeutic alliance is not so much that I am there to help you, but rather that together, as a team, we can work through your difficulties.
