I have been a practising counsellor for many years, my training provides me with a wide range of skills and approaches to work with the best approach for each individual. I offer both short term and long term counselling to adults and young people. I offer confidential independent counselling enabling you to make sense of how you are feeling, which helps to encourage greater self-reliance. I am trained to neither judge nor advise, but to help you gain clarity, by better understanding yourself, other people and what is happening in your life.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a qualified counsellor with a Diploma and a Degree in Therapeutic Counselling; I graduated from Leeds Metropolitan University. My training and experience come from an integrative model of therapy, which draws various techniques from different theories. At the heart of my practice is the importance of a safe therapeutic relationship. I gained my Diploma in The Relational Approach, which places emphasis on the relationship between the client and the counsellor. I work to help you explore and understand your relational patterns and their possible origins.
