Anxiety, Depression & Trauma

About me

The client’s needs are at the heart of the therapy I provide. Sometimes the pressures of life builds, and it can feel overwhelming. I offer a safe environment where we can explore your inner and outer world and work towards your goals for therapy. My aim is to build a strong therapeutic relationship where you feel comfortable and empowered to grow in the direction you want. I work in an integrative and collaborative way, drawing on differing therapeutic disciplines depending on your individual needs. 

I am an integrative therapist with a person-centred base. This means I believe we are each our own best resource for change. I aim to work with you to build that resource in a supportive, compassionate, and encouraging manner. 

COVID-19

I offer face-to-face therapy from my comfortable office in Edgerton, Huddersfield. My office is large enough to allow social distancing and is cleaned regularly.

I am also working both online (WhatsApp and Zoom) and over the telephone for clients that prefer. I have worked over the telephone and online for much of the pandemic and have found that some clients can feel more comfortable with therapy done in this way.

My room is easy to reach from Huddersfield town centre or the M62 and has free off-street parking.

Training, qualifications & experience

I specialise in working with adults 18+ offering both long- and short-term therapy. I utilise my extensive 6-year training which has included CBT, Person-Centred and Psychodynamic principles. I work sensitively with adults who have experienced trauma and hardship in their childhood and growing up. Often these experiences require a gentle and sensitive approach so that clients can explore what is going on for them in the here and now.

Many individuals often suffer from the overwhelming effects of anxiety and depression. I use my experience of working with clients from all walks of life, and research-based strategies to help my clients gain an understanding of why they feel the way they do.

I hold a Psychology and Counselling Bsc (Hons) degree and a Psychotherapy and Counselling MA degree. I am a registered member of the BACP and a graduate member of the British Psychological Society (BPS). I also have an enhanced DBS certificate. 

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Accredited register membership

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
