I offer an online or face-to-face confidential, caring counselling service for individuals to help you work through emotional issues such as bereavement, relationship issues, low self-esteem, depression, anxiety, stress and past experiences that are impacting you in the present. You may be feeling unhappy, stuck or struggling to cope with everyday life and if so talking to an objective and trained professional can really help.
I have considerable experience of working with both cancer patients and their supporters, to help them manage the stress, anxiety, trauma and loss that can occur during the diagnosis and treatment of cancer.
Sessions are held at my premises in Guiseley or nationwide via online sessions.
My fee is £50 per session for individuals. Daytime and evening appointments are available.
I use a combination of Counselling and Psychotherapy skills and techniques drawn from my training in the models of Transactional Analysis, Mindfulness and EMDR. I've found that my clients can easily relate to the concepts and it helps to answer the questions 'Why do I think, feel or do this?' and 'How can I change or accept this about myself?'
I am an Accredited member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP) and operate in accordance with their ethical framework. I am registered on the BACP Healthcare Register.
More information about myself and Catalyst Counselling Service can be found on my website.

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.
