About me

I am a fully qualified and experienced Counsellor and Psychotherapist – In addition I am a Post-Traumatic Stress Management Practitioner and a qualified Mental Health First Aid Trainer. I received my qualifications at Leeds Trinity University. I have vast experience within a caring environment after a distinguished career as a Welfare Officer within the British Army, As well as counselling i run training courses for Army Welfare Staff which involves Counselling Skills, Trauma Risk Management, Post Operational Stress Management, Suicide Vulnerability Risk Management and Mental Health First Aid.

I am passionate about helping those with issues that affect their quality of life and i have spent years gaining the necessary qualifications to be able to offer professional help to those who find themselves needing support.

I specialise in various areas of therapy which includes Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Person Centred Therapy (PCT) but i offer an integrative approach which means I understand one size does not fit all when it comes to therapy. Different clients with different needs require different approaches at different times. An integrative approach draws on different schools of thought and ways of working to produce the most effective therapy for each individual client.

My consulting room in Otley provides a safe and relaxed therapeutic environment to conduct counselling.

Feel free to contact me to discuss your needs and a possible way forward, i make myself available for appointments Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

I specialise in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) which can be used to treat people with a wide range of mental health problems particularly ANXIETY, STRESS AND DEPRESSION.

CBT is based on the idea that how we think (cognition), how we feel (emotion) and how we act (behavior) all interact together.  Specifically, our thoughts determine our feelings and our behavior.

Therefore, negative and unrealistic thoughts can cause us distress and result in problems. When a person suffers with psychological distress, the way in which they interpret situations becomes skewed, which in turn has a negative impact on the actions they take.

CBT aims to help people become aware of when they make negative interpretations, and of behavioral patterns which reinforce the distorted thinking.  Cognitive therapy helps people to develop alternative ways of thinking and behaving which aims to reduce their psychological distress.

Further information

“Worrying is carrying tomorrow's load with today's strength- carrying two days at once. It is moving into tomorrow ahead of time. Worrying doesn't empty tomorrow of its sorrow, it empties today of its strength.”

" Its not the issue thats the problem, its how you choose to view the issue that is the problem"
