About me

  • I work with individual clients aged 14 upwards.
  • I am experienced in working with Aspergers clients.
  • I offer couples counselling.
  • I work with trauma
  • I offer you a CONFIDENTIAL service in line with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy's professional code of ethics. 
  • In a nutshell, I am non-judgemental, empathic and very real - and I aim to work with you confidentially on what you choose, in a way that feels helpful to you

As you think about your situation right now, you may feel clear about your concern and why you are looking for counselling. Or you may feel a bit unclear about they whys and whats of exactly how you're feeling.

It's ok if you are struggling to work out what’s going on for you; you may feel depressed or anxious but not know exactly why, or you may find yourself getting angry or feel your mood is low for no clear reason. WE CAN WORK ON THIS

We will start by exploring your feelings about the situation/dilemma that's facing you.

Once I’ve listened to your reasons for coming to see me, we'll discuss options for ways of working together and review this regularly.

Our working relationship will be very important

I always look forward to my part in this.

I will welcome and invite your feedback on how you feel about our approach throughout our time together

It's essential you feel you're working with a counsellor who feels right for you - research shows that's really important.

That's why I offer a no-strings-attached initial consultation at a 50% discounted rate, where we can see how it feels to work together. Then you can decide if you want to go ahead.

Further information

About me

I’m from Yorkshire. I’ve lived in other parts of Great Britain (and truly loved Glasgow) and now I’m settled in my home county, in Wakefield.

Jobs I’ve done

Before training in counselling/psychotherapy, I had a variety of jobs, including

  • teaching in Further Education
  • working in retail staff management
  • management consultancy and training
  • voluntary work within my local community

I’ve been a researcher and also a volunteer helper in primary schools, and had a brilliant time working with challenging kids, some with special needs, and linking up with their parents, sharing their joys and concerns in the tricky business of raising a family and making difficult decisions.  Being a parent can be great job - and a tough one, for sure!

For nearly ten years, I managed a team of volunteers with a big heart for caring, working with people whose life-controlling addictions often took them to the edge of despair.  Loneliness, friendlessness and fear colour the lives of many of these people, who are often desperately trying to find a way out of this situation.

In every job I’ve had, it’s been the bit about supporting people that I’ve really valued: helping people develop and tap into their inner strengths, maybe surprising themselves by achieving more than they dreamed of.
