About me

When searching for a counsellor it can be difficult to decide who the right person will be, and there’s a lot of us to choose from. Here is some information to tell you a bit about who I am. I hope it helps. I've tried to avoid jargon, and to be as honest as possible about what you can expect if you decide to work with me.

I provide affordable 1-1 counselling for adults at my practice in Wakefield Centre

We will work together to understand what you would like to gain from counselling, even if you are unsure of this yourself at the moment, and I will assist you to make positive steps towards those goals in a timeframe which is realistic for you.

People seek counselling for a variety of reasons; you may be experiencing relationship issues or bereavement/ loss. You may be finding it difficult to manage anxiety, panic attacks, stress or depression. You may be struggling with illness, disability or changes to your circumstances, or you may suffer from low self confidence. I can help you to to:

  •   Find a safe space to talk about painful experiences or losses
  •   Gain some perspective on your life, Improve self-confidence
  •   Make Positive changes in your relationships, work or personal life
  •   Develop helpful coping strategies to better manage anxiety/ panic or depression
  • Find more effective ways to manage personal or work related stress

Fees

I offer either a reduced fee for the initial appointment or alternatively a free 30 minute telephone consultation, so that you can decide if you would like to continue our work together.

Following this, I Charge £40 per session. Sessions last for 50 minutes and will usually take place on a weekly basis.

Further information

The jargon is: I am a BACP registered counsellor and I work in a way which is relational and integrative. What this actually means is that I have been trained in various different modes of counselling, and I will always start with an open mode of hearing what you want, and what you have to say about yourself and I will then allow this to shape the way we work together. I will bring elements from person centred counselling, psychodynamic approaches, mindfulness and cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) as appropriate based on your needs.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any further questions.
