About me

Hello and welcome to my page. I am a warm, down to earth counsellor/psychotherapist. I work in a way that is respectful, ethical and at a pace to suit you.

Whether you are finding it difficult to cope, would like support for a specific issue or are feeling stuck, therapy can offer you a safe, confidential space to explore your difficulties.

I offer short-term counselling and longer-term psychotherapy to adults in Bingley and on-line.

I am experienced in working with people of varying ages and from diverse cultural and social backgrounds. I have experience of working with a range of psychological and relational issues including Stress, Anxiety, General Anxiety Disorder (GAD), Depression, Borderline Personality Disorders, Eating Disorders, Panic Disorder, Phobia, Anger/Frustration, Problems with Sex, Bipolar Disorder, Relationship Issues, Family Issues, Affairs and Betrayal, Management of Separation and Divorce, Bereavement, Loneliness, Issues of Disability and Difference, Autism and Learning Disability.

The aim of our work:
You are unique, and I understand that only you can be the expert on how you feel and what you experience yet that you may feel overwhelmed and stuck. Through developing a trusting therapeutic relationship, I will work with you to achieve greater clarity considering the issue you bring and to better utilise your resources to make meaningful and enduring changes in your life.

How I work:
I work psychodynamically and integrate elements of other approaches to best address your needs. The therapeutic relationship we develop is key to successful therapy, and as such, it is essential that you find a therapist with whom you fit. I aim to grow a space of safety and trust from which to explore the issues you bring to therapy.

My approach perceives you as a whole person (mind, body and spirit) in the context of cultural and social differences. Alongside talking about your thoughts and emotions, I may also encourage you to share what you sense physically. We may explore your beliefs, patterns in relationships and the influence of past experience to support your self-awareness.

Next steps:
If you are thinking of working with me, please get in touch. I am happy to answer any questions you have, and I offer a free, no-obligation 15-minute telephone discussion to help you decide if you would like to meet me for an initial session.

Coming to an initial session can help us both decide if we would like to work together, but there is no obligation for you to continue.

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
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).

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