About me

Hello.
Thank you for taking the time to look at my profile. Taking the step to start counselling or psychotherapy can be a daunting task in itself for many people. Choosing a therapist that feels right for you is important too. As a result, I offer a free 30 minute consultation so you can meet me, get a feel for the way I work, and make an informed decision.

I am a qualified and BACP registered counsellor & psychotherapist offering face to face therapy in Ilkley, West Yorkshire. I also offer zoom sessions for those who would prefer to access therapy remotely.
I provide both short and long term therapy depending on your preferences.

I offer a warm, safe, and confidential space in which you can explore your thoughts and feelings; a space where we can work together to help you move forwards and work towards your goals.

Training, qualifications & experience

  • Postgraduate Diploma in Integrative Psychotherapy (PGDip) - University of Central Lancashire.
  • BACP Accredited Course

How I Work
As an Integrative Psychotherapist, I appreciate that counselling and psychotherapy isn't "one size fits all." My training enables me to draw from various theoretical orientations; responding to your individual needs and preferences.
The foundation of my practice is based on the therapeutic relationship and the (well evidenced) significance of a genuine and authentic connection between therapist and client.

Member organisations

BACP

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.
