About me

Are you looking for emotional support? Do you need space to talk? Are you struggling with life changes, feeling sad or need some support to cope with family, relationship or personal issues?

I work from a person centred approach, putting you and your individual experiences at the heart of what we do and offer a safe, non-judgemental environment that will support you to find your own solutions and strengths.

I offer both short-term counselling and more in-depth, on-going flexible counselling support.  To provide you with an opportunity to meet me and ask any questions you may have in the first instance, I offer a short initial meeting.  This gives us chance to discuss what you hope to get out of counselling and whether I feel like the right person to support you.  If you're then happy to continue we'll set up a second session and take it from there.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a qualified, fully insured and experienced counsellor, working in private practice in Drighlington (Bradford) and Ossett (Wakefield).

I now also work from calm and comfortable counselling rooms in Morley (Leeds), a short drive from J27 of the M62 and just off the A62 Gelderd Road.  This building is wheelchair accessible. 

The type of support I offer is helping adults and young adults who feel challenged by anxiety, relationships issues, bereavement, loss or grief so if you're looking for emotional support, need space to talk or are struggling with life changes, I may be able to help you.

The aim of our sessions is to help you have a better understanding of yourself, and to work through issues to enable a happier and more settled life. I understand first hand that life can feel overwhelming and confusing and that it can be difficult to reach out for help.
