Life can often leave us feeling overwhelmed and unable to cope. At times like these, we just need a safe space where we can breathe and let out our emotions without feeling criticised, judged and alone. I can help by providing that space where you can talk freely about whatever is troubling you. If you have feelings of anxiety, low mood, or depression, I can support you and working together, I can provide you with the tools to help you experience life in a more positive way.
I am trained as a person-centred counsellor, which simply means our sessions are all about you. I currently offer my counselling sessions in person at my clinic in Crossgates LS15. I can also provide online Zoom and telephone appointments which offers flexibility for busy lifestyles or if you are anxious about meeting indoors.
Therapy isn't a one size fits all and I always adapt the therapy to suit you. I can help you to find new ways of coping, create your own solutions, and find acceptance. I understand that we all need support at times, and it can be difficult seeking out support, but you are welcome to contact me with questions about how I work.

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.
