About me

I am a dedicated, calming and approachable therapist who brings warmth and compassion to the work I do. I want you to become your own therapist and to leave the therapeutic relationship as a more independent and competent individual. I am so passionate about therapy and changing the stigma that surrounds it. You are important, you deserve to be listened to and to feel safe whilst doing so.​

Counselling is an important process towards knowing and understanding yourself at a deeper level, enabling you to really live your life and move forward. The model I am trained in is the Relational Approach. This combines the analytical aspect of the Psychodynamic Approach with the warmth of Person Centred therapy. I also consider other theories in my practice such as Transactional Analysis, Gestalt and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy.

I am situated at the Tower Clinic, Cookridge, Leeds. (For more information on where I am based and about the clinic, please look at my website.) It is a professional, welcoming space, easy to find with lots of free car parking.

Member organisations


British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

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.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. 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.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.

There are two disabled persons parking places at the front of the building. The clinic is accessed on the level through a wide front door. Once inside, there are no steps or ramps downstairs. There is a disabled person's toilet facility off reception.
