About me

Making that first step to approach a taking therapy/counselling service is a huge step and knowing which therapist to choose can be overwhelming. Rest assured that if you choose Kirklees Counselling & Therapy I will quickly put you at ease as to what the process will entail. The essence of my approach is to work collaboratively with you to help address your problems. Clients report how empowered they feel by the way I work.

It might be that you are finding it increasingly difficult to cope with low mood, anxiety, relationship issues or other emotional/psychological problems. Alternatively, you may be having physical symptoms which have no clear cause but just won't go away. Regardless, I can help you resolve these issues as well as help you find a more positive and healthy way of being.

Training, qualifications & experience

I hold a Diploma in Transactional Analysis Psychotherapy (an intensive 4-year training programme) and offer both counselling and psychotherapy. In keeping with best practice, I have a supervisor (TSTA/CTA).  For the past 4 years a significant proportion of my caseload has been drawn from GP referrals.

I also lecture in counselling which, combined with extensive experience of working in the NHS and local authority, serves to enrich the service I can offer to clients. At a more personal level, I have for many years held passionate interest in the wider factors contributing to health and well-being. In essence, all this means I am adept at working holistically.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

Whilst I work with men, women and couples, all regardless of sexuality, culture, race, ethnicity and religious background I also have particular areas of interest as follows:

  • People with addictions.
  • People with anger management issues.
  • Helping people overcome anxiety, depression and/or relationship issues.
  • People with long term conditions.


My nominal rate is £40 but this is negotiable dependent upon income. Please call for more information.
