About me

Reaching out for help is a brave step when you may be going through difficulties in life, yet I believe therapy has the power to change people’s lives. I provide a safe, confidential and non-judgemental space to explore your experiences and feelings, working on an open-ended basis or for a fixed period of time. I offer sessions in Headingley, Leeds and online.

At the core of my work is the creation of a space where clients can feel safe, respected fully as a unique individual, valued for their own particular life experiences and feelings. I have a ‘relational’ approach where the most important thing is the therapeutic relationship between counsellor and client.

My work is aimed at enabling each individual to live their life more fully. I have experience of working with a wide range of issues, including anxiety, depression, bereavement, grief, difficulties in relationships, abuse and divorce.

I specialise in working with clients who have had a difficult relationship with their father and have a wider interest in supporting men with their mental health.

I also incorporate my broad experience of working in education, having supported young people with their pastoral and academic needs for over twenty years.

Our work together will be aimed at your understanding yourself better in relation to the world, and understanding your symptoms in a different way. Together we will investigate the causes of your feelings, such as being overwhelmed or feeling empty or struggling to find meaning in life.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

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.
