I have counselled individuals and couples with a wide range of issues for 25 years in various settings, but my independent practice is now based at 2 centres in Roundhay and Cookridge.
I work alongside my clients, exploring their difficulties, enabling them to achieve the outcomes we have mutually agreed would be beneficial.
At the first appointment we will have the opportunity to discuss your difficulties. We will talk about what you want to achieve from counselling and whether it will benefit you. You can experience my counselling approach and we can decide if we want to work together. It's important that we feel comfortable with each other. Some issues can be resolved in a few sessions of short term counselling, others may require more in-depth longer term counselling.
My Relational counselling approach integrates the Psychodynamic, looking at past experiences to help us understand present behaviour and feelings, and elements from Imago Relationship Therapy, Systemic Practice, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Transactional Analysis (TA).
My independent practice is based in 2 counselling and complementary therapy centres in Leeds 8 (Roundhay) and Leeds 16 (Cookridge). They are both accessible by public transport and have parking available. I can offer daytime ( Tues-Thurs) and evening appointments (Mon and Wed)
As a registered and accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) I am bound by its Code of Ethics and Practice and subject to its Professional Conduct Procedure.
