About me

I am a qualified, experienced counsellor, & a registered member of the BACP, & practise using a mainly humanistic existential counselling approach. This means I support & encourage clients to explore & understand their thoughts, emotions & behaviours, helping them to gain insights into their lives, & work through personal difficulties.

Humanistic counselling encourages mindfulness & self-awareness, helping clients to develop a healthier state of mind. The approach acknowledges the person's unique experience of life, & may reveal hidden emotions, which can be processed safely in the non-judgemental counselling environment.

My professional counselling training was in relational theory, which is an integrative method, enabling me to incorporate elements from other different counselling theories into my practise, & I have an interest in TA, REBT & Schema Therapy.

I have experience of counselling clients with many & varied issues, including anxiety, stress & depression, eating problems, survivors of childhood sexual abuse, & people going through loss & grief processes.

I work from therapy rooms located in central Leeds & Wakefield, in Birstall & in Calverley. The first session is charged at a lower rate than all subsequent ones, & is an opportunity for us to meet and explore your needs and hopes for the process, and get a sense of how it feels for us to work together.

Please feel free to ring, text or email me if you have any questions, & I will get back to you quickly if I can't answer straight away. If you would like to make an appointment, please let me know your availability & preferred location if possible.

Training, qualifications & experience


Postgraduate Diploma in Counselling and Psychotherapy, 2016

Postgraduate Certificate in Interpersonal and Counselling Skills, 2014

As well as seeing private clients, I currently work as a volunteer counsellor for an affordable general counselling service based in Kirklees. I also work as a specialist mentor for students who have a disability.

Previously I have worked as a volunteer counsellor with a charity supporting adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse & their families, & also with a bereavement support service. I have also worked with an Employee Assistance Programme (EAP), providing telephone support & counselling.

Before training to be a counsellor I worked for many years in the NHS, providing information and support to patients to meet their physical and mental health needs.
