About me

I am a fully qualified counsellor, EMDR therapist and supervisor.  I've worked in the NHS and private practice for over 15 years.  I am qualified and trained in different models of therapy which means that I can adapt the way I work to suit your needs and your personality.  I'm passionate about therapy, having seen personally and professionally how powerful it can be.

I work with a wide range of difficulties and also specialise in working with different kinds of trauma.  When appropriate, I use EMDR to help people work through their past experiences.  

I offer a calm, comfortable purpose built space in Wilsden, Bradford, BD15 with easy free road side parking.  (There is a small low step to gain entry to my room, and a toilet available on the same level).

I feel privileged in my work and I really value the experience of being alongside people as they move towards more positive phases of their lives.

Please contact me if you would like to make an appointment, or if you would like to arrange a phone conversation (free), to help you decide if you want to go ahead, or not.  No pressure guaranteed!  

I'm not able to answer my phone often, so please leave a message or text.   If you dont hear back from me, check your spam mail or text me; because I always reply to ALL messages.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

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

Other areas of counselling I deal with

I am an accredited EMDR therapist.  This 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.

EMDR can be used to help people who have experienced a one off traumatic event, or people who experienced ongoing trauma from childhoood or adulthood.
