About me

AVAILABLE NOW FOR ONLINE VIDEO COUNSELLING.  Life can be hard. We can feel anxious, depressed, confused or alone. We may struggle to find happiness in ourselves, and our relationships with others. We may be trying to come to terms with loss or abuse. There may be things from the past that still trouble us, and it might not be easy to discuss our problems with friends or family.

It can be a relief to talk in confidence with someone who will truly listen and see things from our own point of view. Someone who can help us make sense of our feelings and work with us at our own pace towards finding solutions.

I will provide you with a safe and supportive space in which you are free to be yourself, without the worry of being judged or criticised. A space in which you can gain a deeper understanding of yourself and the world around you, and explore ways in which you can begin to lead a happier, more fulfilling life.

As a counsellor, I believe that building a strong, trusting therapeutic relationship with my client provides the catalyst for positive change. Being integrative means that I am able to blend together different therapeutic approaches, enabling me to work creatively with you as an individual with your own unique needs.

I am trained in the clinical use of Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) techniques, which allow you to catch negative thought patterns that can tip you into a downward spiral, and help to put you back in control of your life.

I offer a free, no obligation 30 minute face-to-face or telephone consultation. This will provide you with the opportunity to decide whether I am the right counsellor for you, as well as allowing me to understand your reasons for seeking counselling.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a Registered Member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), and practice in accordance with their Code of Ethics (www.bacp.co.uk/ethical_framework). The BACP's register of counsellors and psychotherapists is accredited by the Professional Standards Authority for Health and Social Care.

People come to me with a wide range of emotional, relationship and mental health issues. Alongside my private practice, I work as a counsellor at Harrogate College & Leeds City College where I support students of all ages and social/cultural backgrounds. I have also undertaken bereavement & loss counselling training with Bradford Bereavement Support.

In the past, I have facilitated creative design workshops with children, young people, asylum seekers and various other community groups, around sexual and mental health awareness, bullying, identity and self-esteem. I have also volunteered with Leeds City Council as a harm reduction worker, providing information, advice and support to young people and adults regarding recreational substance use.

Before my career as a counsellor I worked as a graphic designer in various marketing/advertising agencies.

I hold an Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Certificate, and full Professional Indemnity Insurance cover.

Member organisations

BACP

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.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.
