Hello, my name is Natasha and I am a Person-Centred Counsellor. I run my private practice in Saltaire in Bradford and Calverley in Leeds. I offer both online and face to face sessions, weekly and fortnightly sessions are available. As well as working in general practice with a broad range of issues, I have worked in specialist organisations for sexual abuse and domestic abuse.
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.

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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
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).
