About me

I offer a caring, confidential counselling service for both individuals and couples. My premises are situated within the Kirklees area near to Cleckheaton but are within easy reach of Dewsbury, Bradford, Halifax, Leeds, Wakefield and only 2 mls from the M62 motorway.

I am a BACP accredited counsellor with nearly 20 years experience of working with individuals and couples in a variety of settings. This includes 10 years based in a local authority occupational health department counselling employees with any kind of personal and/or work- related issues. I am also a qualified and experienced Relate couples counsellor and a qualified supervisor. Besides working for Relate and in private practice I currently work for several Employee Assistance Providers (EAPs) and insurance companies.

My way of working is grounded in the person-centred approach but further training has given me other skills/knowledge that I use to suit the individual needs of the people I work with. My aim is to create a safe, confidential space so that I can help clients to feel comfortable in exploring their issues/problems and find a way of moving forward.

The issues I work with are many and varied but include:-

  • anxiety
  • depression
  • loss & bereavement
  • relationship difficulties
  • work-related stress (eg redundancy, dealing with change & insecurity, work overload, bullying,etc)
  • low self-esteem
  • worries about health and/or disability
  • family concerns
  • anger etc
