About me

Are you feeling anxious, overwhelmed, stuck or really down? Are you struggling to work out what is bothering you? Or are you not sure where to start? Whatever your reasons I can help.

I am warm, calm and compassionate. Clients have told me I am easy to trust and feel comfortable to share things they have never told people before.

I am passionate about the work I do and I can offer you a confidential, safe place where you will be accepted as you are, to explore the issues you are facing, and find a way forward. Drawing from my experience we can find out what works best for you. I believe everyone has the ability to change and reach their full potential. You are the expert in your own life and we can work together at your pace, to find a way forward.

How I work

I have experience in working with people with a whole range of issues such as anxiety, low mood, worry, depression, confidence and self-esteem issues, bullying, panic, grief, loss, (including loss through a health diagnosis) trauma, parenting issues, marital issues, isolation and self-sabotage.

My training and experience has taught me that relationships are significant. This includes challenges you may be facing in your relationships as a parent, child, partner, friend, at work or at home, but also the way you and I may work together.

I work one to one with adults aged 18 and over, offering short and long term therapy at The Orchard Therapy Centre in Horsforth, North Leeds, a comfortable, calm setting where you will receive a warm welcome in a safe place.

If you would like to meet for an initial session please call, text or email me. We can discuss any questions, fears or concerns you may have.

I am a fully qualified, experienced psychotherapist/counsellor and a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP).

Member organisations

BACP

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.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
