About me

Welcome to my profile. Choosing a counsellor to support and help you in working through difficult thoughts and feelings that are affecting you can be difficult. Needing some effective support is something most of us go through at some point in life. Having counselling is about trying to understand and reflect and process in an effective way what is going on for you. I have years of experience in working with anxiety, depression, co- dependency, stress, sadness, addiction and many of the myriad of other issues life can throw at us.

I have an integrative approach to counselling, with my core principles being in a person centered approach. Over the years I have trained in other disciplines so I can meet the needs of more people as not one approach fits or suits all.

By acknowledging you need some help you have already come a long way.Talking to a professional counsellor in a welcoming and warm space can make a real difference to how you cope and live your life and how it moves forward for you.

I have over thirteen years of experience working full time as a professional counsellor.

I welcome you to contact me for your initial consultation to discuss your needs and see if I am best suited to help you. The areas that I offer counselling in can be seen lower down on my profile.

It is a brave decision to seek counselling. But from my private therapy room in Ilkley I offer a safe space where you will be warmly accepted and effectively supported. My focus is on you and your needs.

I have worked in women’s counselling service, drug and alcohol services along side the NHS and have worked in schools as a child and family counsellor. I look forward to hearing from you.
