About me

I am a qualified, experienced counsellor, & work with individual adult clients. I can help you find ways to work through a variety of problems & complex issues, including anxiety, stress, depression, low self-esteem and relationship problems (individual clients only).

I also have experience of working specifically with clients who are survivors of childhood sexual abuse & their families, & those struggling with bereavement.

I will support & encourage you to safely explore & manage difficult thoughts & emotions, to make sense of areas of life where you may feel 'stuck', & to gain a better understanding & acceptance of yourself.

My professional training was in the relational model which brings together ideas from different counselling theories. In practise I use a mainly humanistic method, which helps clients examine life issues & events to find a fresh focus or meaning about them, bringing a new understanding & relief from distress. I also include elements of theories such as cognitive & Transactional Analysis which provides help to manage difficult emotions & situations.

I work from therapy rooms located in Wakefield & Leeds city centres, & in Birstall, WF17 9JY, & can offer daytime, evening & weekend appointments. The counselling sessions are 50 minutes in length, & can be weekly or fortnightly & on either a short or long-term basis, depending on individual need.

Please get in touch if you have any questions or would like to make an appointment, & I will get back to you soon if I can't answer straight away.

Training, qualifications & experience


Postgraduate Diploma in Counselling and Psychotherapy, 2016

Postgraduate Certificate in Interpersonal and Counselling Skills, 2014

As well as seeing private clients, I currently work as a volunteer counsellor for an affordable general counselling service based in Kirklees. I also work as a specialist mentor for students who have a disability.

Previously I worked as a volunteer counsellor with a charity supporting adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse & their families, & with a bereavement support service. I have also worked with an Employee Assistance Programme (EAP) providing telephone support & counselling to employees from a variety of companies, on both personal & work-related issues.

Before training to be a counsellor I worked for many years in the NHS, providing information and support to patients to meet their physical and mental health needs.
