About me

Currently working via Telephone or Zoom video conferencing during Covid19 times. Offering short-term reduced rates for those Self-employed, NHS, during this time.

In a relaxed conversational way, we identify and focus on your concerns. I appreciate your thoughts and feelings alongside you and am attentive to the meaning they hold for you. Our dialogue has a therapeutic effect and this process between us helps facilitate what you want to achieve. Couples Counselling trained and experienced.

How I Practice:
Listening attentively I respond genuinely, accepting what you are struggling with and how you manage that, however you tell me. I offer a warm, non-judgemental and ethical process for reflection on your concerns.

Your response to the process will be unique to you. Many people take to conversation of this nature very easily.  It really helps if you feel comfortable with your therapist. Sometimes however, counselling might feel hard work for you or that you take three steps forward and one back.

Counselling and Psychotherapy Trainees please note I am a Person-centred/Client-centred Psychotherapist, Counsellor and Supervisor.  I am able to work with Integrative practitioners.

You can come for short term solution-focussed counselling or more open-ended counselling and therapy depending on your needs and how you feel.

The content of your session is confidential (except endangering life). I attend regular supervision according to B.A.C.P. best practice.  I am a registered member of the B.A.C.P. and C.R.B. checked.

I can support you in processes such as:

Couple or relationship difficulties;
After bereavement or a loss when grieving becomes a problem in your life;
Resolving relationship issues including couple counselling or workplace relationship difficulties;
Improving well-being by lifting or alleviating depression or anxiety;
Dissolving difficult to manage anger;
Tackling overwhelming stress;
Finding confidence and improving self-esteem;

For more concerns that I can help with, please read the list below.

You can expect:
A comfortable, calm and confidential space for us to relate;
Responsive appointment times - offering either daytime, evening or Saturday morning;
A well-trained, ethical, informed and well-supervised practice;
Accessible fees and when possible low-cost;
An empathic and non-judgemental understanding, reflecting on your concern.

These are pre-booked in advance depending on my availability and room availability. Sessions are 50-55 minutes long with payment and any next session booking in the last 5 minutes.

How to Contact me:
If you would like to make a general enquiry please telephone (between 9am - 8.30pm weekdays 9am - 2pm Saturdays) or email using the contact link above and I am happy to respond as soon as possible when I am not with a client. If you have to leave a message, it is left in complete confidence for me. My phone does not take numbers "witheld".  Please note I do not work Sundays.

About This Counsellor:
Became interested in counselling through my own personal therapy journey. Life experiences of bereavement and loss of one form or another led me to retrain in counselling.

Began my working life in the Education sector and have extensive experience working with parents regarding parenting issues and relationship with their children. I also have a good understanding of various educational difficulties.

Professional experience in private sector business environments and the Civil Service in Health System Management. I know what it's like to work in teams and working individually.

Mainly, Bramley LS13, but can offer sessions in Calverley LS28 or Tinshill LS16 subject to room availability.  (For Calverley and Tinshill, we would need to book in advance.)

I welcome clients from anywhere in West Yorkshire especially the Leeds area.  In particular I work with clients from the communities of Bramley, Swinnow, Calverley, Pudsey, Rodley, Armley, Wortley, Farsley, Farnley, Guildersome, Driglington and parts of Bradford.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.


British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.


UK Council for Psychotherapy

The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.

As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.

UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Please feel free to make a simple telephone or email enquiry. While you will not be obliged to make an appointment this will not be a telephone counselling session.

Your initial session gives you the opportunity to say what brings you to counselling or if you are unsure, we explore in dialogue if counselling is for you. Also I explain the boundaries necessary for a counselling contract to work safely and therapeutically. We both get a sense of how it feels to work together. This session is often just as therapeutic as those which follow. There is a fee for this first session but you are under no obligation to continue with me if you decide not to follow up.


My core hours are Monday 11 am - 7 pm, Tues - Thursday 9 am - 8 pm, Friday 10-4, Saturday mornings 9 am - 2 pm. Closed Sundays.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
