About me

Sometimes life can be hard. We can feel anxious, depressed, confused or alone. We may struggle to find happiness in ourselves, and our relationships with others. There may be things from the past that still trouble us, and it might not be easy to discuss our problems with friends or family.

It can be a relief to talk in confidence with someone who will truly listen and see things from our own point of view. Someone who can help us make sense of our feelings and work with us at our own pace towards finding solutions.

I will provide you with a safe and supportive space in which you are free to be yourself, without the worry of being judged or criticised. A space in which you can gain a deeper understanding of yourself and the world around you, and explore ways in which you can begin to lead a happier, more fulfilling life.

As a relational counsellor, I believe that building a strong, trusting therapeutic relationship with my client provides the catalyst for positive change. Being integrative means that I am able to blend together different therapeutic approaches, enabling me to work creatively with you as an individual with your own unique needs. I am also trained in the use of Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) techniques, which allow you how to catch negative thought patterns that can tip you into a downward spiral, and helps to put you back in control of your life.

Short-term and long-term therapy can be provided depending on your requirements. Regular reviews will be built into our sessions to enable us to clarify your needs and work towards your therapeutic goals.

I offer a free, no obligation 30 minute consultation. This will provide you with the opportunity to decide whether I am the right counsellor for you, as well as allowing me to understand your reasons for seeking counselling. This session can be held over the phone if you wish.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a Registered Member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), and practice in accordance with their Code of Ethics (www.bacp.co.uk/ethical_framework). The BACP's register of counsellors and psychotherapists is accredited by the Professional Standards Authority for Health and Social Care.

People come to me with a wide range of emotional, relationship and mental health issues. Alongside my private practice, I work as a counsellor at Harrogate College where I support staff and students of all ages and social/cultural backgrounds. I also specialise in bereavement counselling with Bradford Bereavement Support.

In the past, I have facilitated creative design workshops with children, young people, asylum seekers and various other community groups, around sexual and mental health awareness, bullying, identity and self-esteem. I have also volunteered with Leeds City Council as a harm reduction worker, providing information, advice and support to young people and adults regarding recreational substance use.

Before my career as a counsellor I worked as a graphic designer in various marketing/advertising agencies.

I hold an Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Certificate, and full Professional Indemnity Insurance cover.
