About me

Counsellor and therapist practising in Todmorden and Hebden Bridge.

Friendly, empathic and professional service.

BACP registered for your assurance and safety. Fully trained Integrative Counsellor.

Please take a look at my profile and message or call me if you would like to talk or get more info.

I like to practise in a large, private space where clients have room to move and express themselves in any way that helps them. This could include movement, drawing, making sounds,... just talking in a peaceful atmosphere... or a combination of both.

Near Todmorden train station.

Training, qualifications & experience

Diploma in Transactional Analysis/ Integrative counselling.
Certificate in Psychodrama.
BA hons, Creative Arts.

30 years experience in collaborative arts and wellbeing projects with individuals and groups.

My training covers several approaches including behavioural work, relational styles and action methods. I always work from a non-judgmental view and seek to enable rather than direct. Together we can look for the best way to navigate through life's problems.

My style is based in respect and allows for humour and creativity.

Having worked as a professional musician and artist for many years I well suited to understand the needs of self-employed and creative people. Clear communication and clear boundaries are helpful to this work. I offer a joint contract that we can make to help us navigate the formal aspects of counselling/therapy, leaving a clear space for imaginative work.

payed one session in advance (Ie once we agree to work together client pays for an extra session which stays on account until the last session.)

I operate a sliding scale for people with limited incomes, on benefits or unable to earn. This is not always possible, but please feel free to ask if I can accept a lower rate, or we can discuss it when we meet. Likewise if your circumstances change I may be able to accept less,... or more.

Further information

My approach is sensitive, non judgemental and active. We work together to understand your needs.

Our conversations are confidential.

I use an Integrative and active method which aims to bring together or integrate parts of you that are in conflict. It also requires you to be active and involved in exploring your issues. Therapy is not a magic pill or cure that is done to you. It is more like a guided process of knowing oneself that leads to where you want to be.

We can also utilise creative and non-verbal work activities to enhance your explorations, if it feels right for you. So our conversation can also include writing, moving, role play, music or body awareness work... if appropriate. These approaches can help us to communicate on a deeper level than just talking, or can give you access to the hidden realms of the subconscious.

I aim to support diverse beliefs and lifestyles and would like to support people from challenging backgrounds to assert their rights and achieve their goals. I also have many years experience of working with people with learning disabilities and Autistic Spectrum Conditions, to help them to express themselves and to take control of their life choices.
Parents and carers can also benefit from counselling or therapy with someone who understands these pressures and stresses.

You are welcome to come for a 30min assessment, free of charge, to discuss what concerns you and how we might work together. You are then free to decide if you wish to proceed.
