About me

I am a qualified Counsellor and Psychotherapist registered with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy. (Reg.MBACP) and I work with adult clients. I work in an integrated way using approaches which suit the needs and preferences of the individual clients.

I have a Post Graduate Certificate in the Supervision of Counselling and Psychotherapy and I offer professional supervision to therapists, in addition to my work with clients.

I can work with you over a long term period, eg for long standing difficulties or problems, or using brief therapy in a time limited way, according to your individual needs and choices. The length of the therapy will be discussed in an initial assessment session and reviewed periodically by us.

I have over twenty five years experience in a variety of roles in professions working with people extensive experience of working with people from a wide variety of backgrounds, origins and of different ages and I am able to build positive working relationships quickly.

I work in the Focus Therapy rooms in Sowerby Bridge, near Halifax, which is easily accessible from Halifax, other parts of Calderdale, Huddersfield and Kirklees, Bradford, Rochdale and Burnley. There is off street parking available. I offer appointment times during the day and evenings, so people who work 9-5 etc, or those who have caring commitments, can be accommodated. If required I can work in other locations by agreement.

Choosing a Counsellor, or Psychotherapist can seem daunting and it is important that you are able to express yourself and discuss your difficulties with someone who you trust and with whom you are able to talk freely. If you would like to discuss your requirements please telephone or email me, or fill in the enquiry form on my website. The initial meeting/assessment can also provide an opportunity for you to decide whether I am the right person to work with you.

My website includes further information about me and and some general information about counselling and psychotherapy.
