About me

Life is often unpredictable and challenging for us all, sometimes becoming overwhelming and difficult to navigate through. Looking for a counsellor that ‘fits’ and can provide the space you need is an extremely daunting task in itself. However, finding the right one for you can be a turning point and enable you to see some light.

I am a practising counsellor, primarily based in Wetherby. I am committed to providing you with a safe, confidential and non-judgmental space where we can work in collaboration to help you understand and overcome the barriers you face. I have much life experience in mental health, working with directly but also supporting people whom care for others.

I have many years experience supporting people with learning disabilities and their families. I also have experience working with a multitude of issues from anxiety, stress, depression, bereavement to eating disorders, PTSD and trauma.

I believe the key to effective collaboration is a trusting relationship. From that I employ an integrative way of working that is very focused on and what works best for you. I work from the heart offering a very personal service, employing person centred techniques, tailor making each session for you. I have experience using CBT,  Gestalt, Psychodynamic, TA techniques in a creative and diverse approach.

If you have any questions then please don’t hesitate to contact me.
