Hello and welcome to my page.
I am an integrative counsellor and psychotherapist working in Chapel Allerton and Cookridge in Leeds. I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I am also a registered Speech and Language Therapist with 30 years experience in the NHS.
It can be daunting to visit a counsellor to talk about yourself and your life. You may want to change something, or explore how you feel about a particular experience or a relationship. What I offer you is a safe and confidential space to talk about how you feel, allowing you to be heard and to feel supported. Through developing a clearer understanding of yourself and what has brought you to therapy, you may learn new ways of relating to and interacting with others.
I have supported many clients, whose issues include anxiety and depression, abuse, relationship difficulties, health conditions and bereavement. I have worked extensively with people with communication difficulties, and their families. This includes people with neurological conditions such as Parkinson’s, Motor Neurone Disease and Stroke, and also people with cerebral palsy and speech and communication impairments. I developed an NHS service providing alternative methods of communication for those with limited speech. This included electronic communication aids that provide a ‘voice’ to those who do not have one. I am passionate about communication, in its many forms.
I am interested in working with adults. I also have a particular interest in supporting people with communication difficulties and health conditions.
I use comfortable and relaxing rooms in Chapel Allerton and Cookridge, both easily accessible by public transport and with easy parking. The room in Cookridge is a ground floor accessible room.
