I am a fully qualified counsellor since 2004 with many years’ experience and offer short-term and long-term counselling for individuals over 18. I am based in Leeds City Centre.
I am a sensitive, perceptive and yet straightforward counsellor who strongly believes in treating people as individuals with different needs and working with them accordingly. As an integrative counsellor I am able to adapt my approach according to your specific needs and to help you expand and grow in self-awareness, build on inner strength and utilise your own unique resources with the view to promote greater sense of inner freedom and psychological growth.
Through the counselling process, you can develop greater self awareness, self understanding and discover new strengths within yourself thus enabling you to have better coping skills. Counselling can also help you to reflect on the choices you have available to you and discover what you want out of life.
I aim to create an environment of trust and space in which you can safely explore your emotions, thoughts and feelings without fear of being judged and in the strictest confidence.
As a Member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists I work within their Ethical Framework of good practice which is safe and confidential and which you can look up on www.bacp.co.uk. I am always committed to on-going professional development to enhance my work.

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.
