I offer person centred psychotherapy and counselling to anyone feeling in need of some extra support, or just a space to reflect and process.
My approach is integrative meaning that whilst the core of my way of working is grounded in the humanistic and psychodynamic schools of therapy, I do use other tools as and when they are appropriate and useful.
I can work with a wide range of presenting concerns including depression and anxiety, feeling low, relational problems, eating disorders as well as bereavement and trauma. In addition, I have extensive experience working with physical health related issues, having previously worked within mental health settings, universities and third sector providers.
My private practice is based in Alwoodley, and I offer a free 20 minute initial consultation, either in person or over the phone.
My fee is £50 for a 50 minute session, reduced fees are available for those on low income.
I am a member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) working within their ethical framework and regulations.
I work flexibly during the day as well as early evening, and can offer weekend sessions if needed.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have, or to arrange an initial telephone chat.
Training, qualifications & experience
BSc (Hons) Psychology
MSc Applied Forensic Psychology
MA Psychotherapy and Counselling
As well as working in private practice, I have worked within a student counselling service offering short term counselling and coaching. Previously I have worked for a service supporting individuals who had been diagnosed with a new health condition, using counselling and coaching to work towards mutually agreed goals. During my training as a counsellor I also worked within a substance use residential service, as well as a mental health setting. This has allowed me to fine tune working towards an individual’s needs, regardless of their circumstances, presenting concerns or background.
