About me

Are you feeling anxious or depressed?
Are painful memories from your past upsetting you?
Have you experienced a loss or bereavement and finding it difficult to cope?

Hello, welcome to my page. I am a warm, caring qualified counsellor with 6 years experience. I offer a safe, non-judgemental and confidential space for you to explore your thoughts and feelings in calm surroundings.

About Me

The way I work as a Humanistic Counsellor is not to direct you, but to talk and listen as we workout together what has brought you to counselling. I can help to alleviate any distress or difficulties you are facing. It may be something from your past or present, your feelings or emotions, how you are in relationships, your patterns or behaviour and the way you think. If you decide to work with me, I will never make you talk about anything that is too distressing, nor do I give you advice. I believe all the answers are within you. You don't necessarily need to be in any kind of crisis to attend, it maybe you are feeling underwhelmed in life or stuck and not not knowing where you are heading.

I work one to one, face to face with adults aged 18 and over. Sessions are offered on a short-term or long-term basis. The therapy room is based near to the City Centre of Leeds, close to The Calls and The Tetley Car Park. I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy, meaning I adhere to a set of fundamental values, and work ethically and safely with clients. The Ethical Framework can be found on the BACP website.

I have extensive experience working with adults aged 18 and over from different cultures and diverse backgrounds with a range of issues and problems including:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Relationship Issues
  • Loss & Bereavement
  • Self Harm
  • Abuse
  • Low Self Esteem
  • Anger
  • Bullying
  • Domestic Violence
  • Stress and many more

I have a special interest in and experience with:

  • Anxiety & Depression
  • Chronic Conditions | Disease

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me

Accredited Volunteer Register No. 057099

My journey into counselling began several years ago when I worked for a large charity helping individuals with practical issues to enhance their lives. I found I was able to connect with them and offer emotional support. I then decided to begin my training. I trained in the Person-Centred Approach, it is know as a talking therapy and it is non directive. I also integrate other theories such as Existential, Psychodynamic and Transpersonal.

Before working in independent practice, I worked as an Associate Counsellor at a University in Leeds. I became a Mature Practitioner in my final year. I also regularly attend training and workshops for my own personal and professional development.
