About me

I have been working as a Relate Counsellor since 2002 working with Couples, Individuals,Young People, Families and with Children in schools. I have  a successful private practice in Brighouse  which has been established since 2006


There are many reasons why relationships become strained or in difficulty..The sooner you can recognise there is a problem the better.

Maybe things have been great for along time, but now don't feel the same and you can't understand why.Sometimes its hard to talk,you never get time, or if you try, it always ends in an argument so issues never get resolved and resentment builds.You may be facing a dilemma, such as whether or not to separate and how this will affect your children.You may have issues relating to your sexuality, have difficulty forming relationships or are struggling to come to terms with a relationship that has ended.Professional counselling can help resolve these issues.
You don't have to be married,living with someone or in a relationship and it makes no difference if you are lesbian, gay, bi-sexual or trans.

I offer counselling for young people in Brighouse and in schools between the ages of 10-25 on issues such as parental separation and divorce; bullying and teenage related anxieties.Young people often find it hard to talk to parents who maybe hurting and vulnerable themselves.Teenagers may find it  particularly awkward to raise other dilemmas and anxieties at home. Young people can refer themselves or through their parents/carers and sometimes via school.(I am fully DBS checked)

I see clients on an individual basis for relationship and non-relationship issues. Maybe you need some time and space to explore a dilemma or difficulty without your partner or your partner has chosen not to come for counselling.
Other personal counselling is offered to help deal with loss or bereavement, anxiety, self esteem, work or issues from your past that are unresolved and troubling you

Sometimes family relationships and communication breakdown and talking together in a neutral environment with professional intervention can help help. Being qualified as a family counsellor also enables me with  consent from a young person to include parents or other family members as part of their ounselling journey, if relevant and appropriate.

I am based in the centre of Brighouse, easy to find; one minutes walk from 3 car parks and 5 minutes from junction 25 of the M62 close to Hipperholme, Lightcliffe, Halifax, Elland, Scholes, Cleckheaton, Hartshead with easy access to other areas of Calderdale and West Yorkshire.

Undertake a minimun of 30 hours of CPD per year on many aspects of therapeitic practice to develop and maintain upto date knowledge and skills

I have established my own private practice in Brighouse, in addition to being awarded a license to receive referrals from Relate. I have received additional training on issues such as adult survivors of sexual abuse; mental health and couple counselling; domestic violence, infertility and human sexuality*
*(Specialised Psychosexual Therapy may be recommended)

My work is underpinned by two therapeutic (counselling) models; Psychodynamic and Systemic. My practice is based on needs and best interest of the client at all times. However I may not be able to keep something confidential, should I have reason to believe someone especially a child is at risk of harm.I will consult with you wherever possible, should this be the case.
My previous work experience in corporate life which involved managing and working with people issues also brings an understanding of the increasing challenges and pressures of working life, displacement and redundancy facing employees in today's economic climate

Member organisations

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.
