About me

I'm a fully qualified EMDR therapist, counsellor/ psychotherapist (& supervisor). I have worked in the NHS and private practice for over 15 years offering both therapy and supervision. I've done additional training in other models of therapy including  C.B.T.  this means that I can adapt the way I work to suit you, depending on your needs and your personality. I provide a comfortable and safe space in the centre of Bradford and will soon also be working from Wilsden.  I have experience and training to work with a wide variety of people who may be struggling with any aspect of their life. I feel passionately about counselling. I have seen how powerful it can be both personally and professionally. I feel privileged to work in this area and to be alongside people as they start to move towards a more positive phase of their lives.

Call or email me to arrange an initial appointment or to ask more.

I also offer a free short phone conversation so you can ask any questions, or just get a sense of what I'm like.  This may help you decide if I'm the right person for you before you make an appointment.  No pressure guaranteed!

Other areas of counselling I deal with

I have undertaken specialist training in EMDR (accredited training) which enables me to work with people who have experienced trauma.  It can feel difficult to move on with life after experiencing a trauma (or traumas) and there may be lasting impacts.

EMDR is a way of accelerating the brains natural healing processes for people who have experienced trauma.
