About me

Counselling helps you to make sense of your feelings and what's happening in your world. It offers you the chance to talk to someone in confidence about YOU...and the things that are worrying, upsetting or distressing you. Talking about bottled-up feelings and emotions that are affecting your well-being can give you a sense of relief.

Choosing the right counsellor to support you through tough times can be a difficult in itself. The emotions and feelings you're experiencing are private and the idea of sharing these may leave you feeling vulnerable and exposed. It’s important to feel safe, comfortable…and to feel a connection with your therapist.

If you choose to work with me as a counsellor, when you’re sharing your world and inner most feelings, you can trust me to never judge. Being truly heard is a powerful thing and I’m here to listen and create the space for you to work through things in your own way and in your own time.

I offer short and long term counselling sessions, and have a counselling room on Halifax Road in Huddersfield. This is close to Huddersfield town centre and is only a short drive from the M62, so easily accessible from Brighouse, Halifax, Bradford, Leeds and Manchester.

My website offers more information about me and the counselling service I offer if you want to take a look.
