About me

Working with a therapist can help you work through a range of issues, provide emotional support and offer coping strategies for a variety of mental health conditions such as depression, PTSD and anxiety. You may be dealing with a traumatic or difficult life event such as a death or relationship breakdown, whatever your circumstances I can help you understand your situation better, move forward with your life and see things from a new perspective. You might want to use therapy to identify the cause of your distress or process an unresolved issue in the past or explore ways to come to terms with what troubles you in the present.

I am an experienced integrative relational therapist. I am a fully accredited BACP member which means I have reached a recognised standard of practice in my profession.  I provide counselling and psychotherapy online and I work face to face in the West Yorkshire area. I work with a variety of issues and I integrate several different forms of therapy into my practice to meet the needs of my clients. Theoretical integration involves blending different theoretical frameworks and their methods; for me this includes a number of influences including person centred therapy, transactional analysis, mindfulness, my work is supported by theories of attachment and relationship.

Working relationally is the heart of my practice, relational theory focuses on achieving empowerment and growth through working closely with another. The collaborative relationship between the therapist and the client supports the process of self understanding enabling individuals to move forward with their lives and reach greater acceptance of themselves and others.

What we learned in the past affects the way we act in the here and now, looking at beliefs and patterns founded in our history can help us better understand how and why we are experiencing difficulties in the present. From this place of understanding we can begin to acknowledge, accept and readjust and live life more fully.

I am committed to meeting the needs of the individuals I work with at emotional depth offering support, safety, reassurance and a non judgemental response. I specialise in Grief therapy - helping bereaved clients manage their loss.

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.
