About me

Life can feel extremely hard, at any age, when you are experiencing difficulties or when you are trying to make sense of things, past & present.

You are considering counselling as you may feel ready to 'move forward' with your life and ready to explore some of the things that are holding you back.

I run MindMove Counselling in Leeds and I am here to help you with that 'move'. Please take a look at my website www.mindmovecounselling.co.uk

I am a Registered member of the British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP) and I work with adult men & women and with young people (between 11-18 years), on wide ranging issues.

My therapy rooms are in Chapel Allerton (LS7) & Oulton, near Rothwell (LS26) & Colton (Leeds 15).

You may prefer, for a variety of reasons, to have telephone, Face-Time, Whatsapp or Skype sessions. We can speak about this when you call.

HOW COUNSELLING CAN HELP...

For many reasons it can be difficult to speak with family, friends or others you might normally talk to or confide in. People you know may offer advice or pass judgment.

The counselling service at MindMove is completely confidential & non-judgemental, regardless of what you bring to your sessions. Being able to talk with someone who doesn't know you, who won't judge you and won't tell you what to do, provides you with a freedom you are unlikely to have with anyone else. In our sessions together, I support you, I listen to you and we work together to help you move forward.

Together, we can discover underlying problems behind the difficulties you are experiencing.

You can take your time, going at your own pace. While you take your time to 'unravel' some of the things you are struggling with, I will be alongside you, helping you explore some of emotions you are feeling. I will provide time and space for you, in counselling, when you need to be listened to.

We have a telephone consultation prior to having a session. Or if you have any questions, then please call/text.
