About me

Sometimes when going through a difficult time it can be easier to talk to someone who doesn't know you, won’t judge you or tell you what to do.

For lots of different reasons, we might not feel able to talk to the people closest to us for fear of upsetting them, worrying that they may judge us, or concern that sharing with them may change our relationship with them. The counselling relationship is confidential and gives you a safe space to talk about whatever is going on for you without needing to worry about these things.

You may not completely understand the way you are feeling, and you may find it useful having someone to guide you through an exploration of your past experiences, feelings and thoughts, in order to better understand yourself. If we can reach a place of understanding ourselves better, we're in a far better position to make changes moving forward. 

It is important for you as the client to feel safe, in a trusting, honest and supportive relationship with your counsellor. The strength of the relationship itself is essential for the counselling process and so it is really important that you find the right counsellor for you.

Counselling is not just about listening, or about giving advice. The counselling relationship provides a secure base from which you can explore difficult feelings, experiment with different ways of being and start to make changes or work towards goals.

I offer individual counselling in Huddersfield for ages 16+. Please don't hesitate to contact me for more information about what I can offer, and my current availability.

Training, qualifications & experience

I started training as a counsellor at Leeds Metropolitan University where I completed the CertHE in Interpersonal and Counselling skills. I completed my training with the DiplomaHE in Therapeutic Counselling, also at Leeds Metropolitan.

The core approach I work from is the Relational Approach which maintains that the relationship between client and counsellor is of key importance. For me this is developed through offering an emotionally safe space for my clients where they can be truly heard. Typically we may talk about your childhood and other past experiences to understand how those things have shaped you into the person you are today and gradually piece together the jigsaw puzzle of your life bit by bit. Depending on what issues you are bringing to counselling and what you feel might be helpful to you, it may be that we also consider some other more proactive strategies like CBT or mindfulness/relaxation to help alongside our work together. I also enjoy working quite creatively and will often use different metaphors to help express understanding.

I am an Accredited member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and therefore I work to their ethical standards.

In addition to my private practice I have gained over 3 years experience from working at Bradford Counselling Services; a project in Bradford City Centre offering counselling for all ages and various issues.

I have also worked for a service delivering telephone counselling and coaching to clients suffering with long term health conditions. The service aimed to provide support and motivation to those struggling with their diagnosis, with the aim to improve their management of their condition and improve their general sense of well being. This really developed my interest in working with clients with long term health conditions.

I worked as an Associate Counsellor for GamCare for a number of years, working with clients who suffer with an addiction to Gambling, or the affected family members of the addict. 

I work on a contract basis with various services offering short term counselling to their employers through Employee Assistance Programmes.

I am a trained Supervisor which means that I support other counsellors in their work with their own clients. 

Other courses I have completed include but are not limited to: Bradford Bereavement Support training course, Transactional Analysis (TA101), Basic Awareness in Domestic Abuse, CAMHS Introduction to Children and Young People.

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.

Key details

Wheelchair user access
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.
