About me

Are you looking to find your self-worth again after an abusive relationship? Do you need to work with a trauma therapist to find your self-worth again?

Are you having nightmares? Flashbacks? Anxiety attacks? Are you struggling to trust your thoughts and feelings, battling fatigue and not sure how to start the process of getting back to being you? If you are existing rather than living due to trauma and abuse we can work together so you can heal.

I work with a wide range of clients, specialising in those who are trying to leave, or who have left, an abusive relationship and want to shed the trauma bonds and find their self-worth again.

I am a survivor of domestic violence and have experience working with those who want to heal from trauma and abuse, trauma bonding, and co-dependency. I can work with you to help you understand how trauma and abuse affect your mind, body, and well-being as well as your relationships going forwards.

We can work together in a trauma-informed way so you can navigate your way through the emotions of shame, guilt, and fear in a safe and nurturing way. 

Please reach out to me to arrange a free discovery call to chat informally about how you can start your healing journey. You CAN heal from trauma and abuse.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a degree in Psychology and a Masters in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy. Working online across the UK and in-person at therapy rooms in Morley, Leeds, LS27, I can offer you a safe and confidential space to explore any feelings that have become overwhelming. Getting the support you need when you are struggling can bring enormous relief.

I work primarily with those who are trying to leave, or who have left, an abusive relationship and want to shed the trauma bonds and find their self-worth again. I have also worked successfully with a range of clients, exploring (but not limited to) depression, anxiety, stress, ill-health, LGBTQ+ topics, trauma, attachment and abuse. I also have experience working with teenagers and young adults.

I have also trained in creative therapy with young people and work with children and young people from the age of 14 upwards.

Member organisations

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.

Mon Tue Wed Thu Fri Sat Sun

My working hours are flexible; please get in touch to enquire if there is a specific day and time you would prefer.

Further information

I know first-hand how scary it can be to take that first step into counselling, and I also know that choosing a therapist is a deeply personal choice. With that in mind, I offer a free discovery call online or over the phone so we can chat informally about what you hope to achieve through counselling and ask any questions you may have.

If you would like to proceed, we can discuss a suitable day and time for your sessions.

If you are ready to see what we can achieve together, please use the buttons at the top to book an introductory discovery call or send me an email. I am responsive and will reply to you quickly.

Our first session will be about what you would like to achieve through your therapy, discussing some of the issues you would like to focus on in our sessions. Meeting weekly is best to foster our therapeutic relationship, although I appreciate that it is not always possible; if you prefer fortnightly sessions, please let me know. 

Online sessions are £50 and last 50 minutes, in-person sessions are £60 and last 50 minutes at the Leeds Treatment Rooms, Morley, LS27 9AN.

Wheelchair user access
Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
