About me

I am a fully qualified and experienced person-centred and CBT practitioner working in Huddersfield. I help individuals and couples with a wide range of difficulties, from feelings of depression and anxiety or low self-esteem, to difficult relationships at home or at work.

I understand every client is unique in their personality and needs, and that whilst one therapeutic approach may be very helpful for one client, it may not be for another. I am trained in person-centred therapy, have a Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) and Life Coaching certificate, which enables me to work in a way best suited to each client.

I aim to provide plenty of space for you to tell your story, in a warm, supportive and open way. It’s important to me that your voice is heard and respected and that you come to understand yourself; your needs, conflicts, anxieties, defences, and relational patterns on a much deeper level. In turn, this enables you to explore alternative ways of being and relating, helping you to find greater satisfaction and stability.

It’s important that you understand the therapeutic process and your progress, so I regularly offer and invite feedback. I offer short-term and long-term help, but have found working longer term with periodic reviews can be truly effective in creating a lasting change.

I also offer self-esteem, work/life balance workshops and creative group therapy which can be a powerful experience in looking at your personal development.

For more information on how I work, please consult my website.

Member organisations

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Further information

As well as Face to Face appointments, I am able to support my clients with online sessions. I'm using Zoom which is really easy - if you download the app onto your tablet, laptop or phone, I can send you the Zoom link in an email and we will be connected.

It can be more convenient than face to face counselling because there's no travel, no parking, just counselling in the comfort of your own home.

If you're having a tough time at the moment and could do with some extra support, drop me an email to see how I can help.

Stay safe.

If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.
