I am a Person Centred Counsellor providing one to one adult therapy. I will work with you to achieve greater self awareness and I will support you as you find your own way out of difficulties and so move towards a more fulfilled life.
I chose to train to be a counsellor because personally I have had very positive experiences receiving counselling to help me to deal with my own difficulties and issues. I wanted very much to help others in the same way and so embarked on training to become a qualified person centred counsellor.
I can provide a safe, confidential space, will listen without judgement, be honest and help you guide yourself through the difficulties that you may be facing. At your own pace, with my support, you can learn to untangle confused thoughts, face difficult thoughts and emotions and find your way to a happier, clearer life.
I have experience counselling the elderly and those with dementia. I can offer visits either in your own homes or in residential care homes.

I usually see clients weekly, but more often if necessary.
The number of sessions required varies greatly from client to client and is also dependent on the issue/issues involved and the pace in which you feel comfortable to progress.
Sometimes a couple of sessions are enough to enable you to see things more clearly or you may wish to work with me for a lot longer. With this in mind, I tend not to agree on a certain number of sessions from the outset, but allow you to decide this as we work together to resolve your difficulties.
I have a therapy room at the Tower Clinic in Cookrigde, Leeds.
