The Therapy Rooms
I am a qualified counsellor, psychotherapist and hypnotherapist and member of the BACP and the General Hypnotherapy Register.
As human-beings we all face challenges. Sometimes difficulties can be worked through by ourselves or with the help of family and friends, at other times we may find ourselves stuck and unable to move forward to where we would like to be.
I can offer a safe and confidential space in which you can feel comfortable in exploring the difficulties that you may be facing and finding solutions.
My approach to counselling and psychotherapy is an integrated one, that is, I use a range of different models to create the best therapy to suit the individual. This is certainly not a one size fits all method of working.
I believe certain models of counselling and psychotherapy lend themselves to specific problems and issues; choosing the correct way of working will produce the best results.
The counselling relationship is paramount to successful therapy and given the right support and a safe environment, I believe people can become empowered to make the right decisions to move towards the goals that they wish for and resolve the areas of their lives which may have caused concern.
It is really important that prospective clients feel comfortable with the person they intend to work with. It is for this reason that I always offer a free half hour session in order that potential clients might get a feeling of whether or not I would be the right therapist for them.
I practice from very comfortable surroundings in the centre of Wakefield. There is plenty of parking spaces available close-by and is close to bus and rail links.
