About me

Hello, my name is Natasha and I’m a Person-Centred Therapeutic Counsellor, running my private practice in Apperly Bridge, Bradford, offering both online and face to face sessions.

I pride myself on being down to earth, most of all... I'm human, just like you. I've got all the regular roles and masks to juggle, from daughter to mother, friend to family member, I've been employed and an employer. Needless to say in my 40 years so far I've probably had personal experience of at least half of issues listed in what I work with, so I feel that enables me to empathise and understand the difficulties life throws at us. 

Whilst I work in general practice with a broad range of issues, I have a passion for supporting people through bereavement and recovering from abuse.

General practice supports with a broad range of issues, such as anxiety, depression, work stress, bereavement, low self worth and relationship issues, I have worked in specialist organisations for sexual abuse and domestic abuse. For more information please visit my website

I understand how daunting and difficult it can be making the decision to start any form of therapy, particularly finding the right service or therapist for you so let me explain a little about myself and the way I work. My training is in the Person-Centred model, which means I offer a calm, confidential, non-judgemental space for you to explore your thoughts and feelings. I also work creatively to support the process when words simply just aren't enough. Quite often when making the decision to attend therapy we are unsure of what has brought us to this place, and that’s ok, we can work together, at your pace, exploring your thoughts, feelings and experiences. Sometimes, some of these are buried deep or locked away in our sub-conscience which is why we don’t always know why we think, feel or behave the way we do. Working with a trained therapist can help you to process and understand the things you are struggling with.

Depending on your needs, I offer both long and short term therapy, which we will review regularly to discuss how you are finding our work together; whether you feel that therapy is benefiting you, if you feel we’re sufficiently focused on your goals or if you feel we need to do anything differently.

I am a member of the BACP and work in line with the BACP Ethical framework and have regular clinical supervision and CPD.

Member organisations

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.

Accredited register membership

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

Pet loss bereavement support. This can be an isolating grief, often because those around us don’t always understand the unique bond we share with our pets. I wholeheartedly do, and understand the importance of our grief being validated.
