About me

As a therapist I help individuals talk about their feelings, think about their choices and help them to achieve positive changes in their lives through the counselling process.

I like to make counselling simple for you and make counselling work for you.

At the moment I'm working in Leeds on a Monday & Wednesday. Guisborough on a Tuesday & Thursday.

Please have a read of the testimonials on my website www.allanclayton.co.uk and we'll set up a quick chat (free) to see if I'm the right counsellor for you.

Everything that happens in the therapy room is shaped by experience and research. You leave the session with a new perspective and feel empowered to take control of your life. I won't give you a 'quick fix' but support you in getting to the bottom of your problem & making your own meaningful decisions. I provide a genuine, quality service and build great relationships that clients ‘one step at a time’ recommend to their family and friends. Sessions will allow you to explore, feel grounded, positive and give you a platform to reach your full potential. For you to be able to feel confident to turn to me at any time.

I give you full control over your bookings. You can choose the frequency of your therapy sessions. One-off sessions are also okay! Whether you prefer face-to-face therapy, online video therapy, or practical sessions in real-life situations, the choice is yours.

The uncertainty of choosing a trustworthy therapist can be overwhelming. I am happy to take some time to discuss your difficulties or answer any of your questions. Please feel free to contact me in the most convenient way for you. You can call me, text me, or WhatsApp me on 07547200959 or email me.

Member organisations


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.
