About me

Sometimes we all need space to work out what is going on in our lives.  Counselling and psychotherapy can offer you that space in a safe environment, giving you time to 'unpick' things, see things in a different way and help you to live the life you want to. You have already taken the first step by looking on this website.

I am an experienced integrative and relational psychotherapist and counsellor, working with individuals and couples on a number of personal and relationship issues.  I have experience of working in a variety of settings, including the voluntary sector, the not for profit sector and the NHS, as well as in my private practice in Leeds.

I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and work within their Framework for Good Practice. My service is caring, non-judgmental and confidential.

I have worked successfully with clients on a variety of issues, including during times of crisis, bereavement and loss, depression and anxiety, low self-esteem and relationship issues. I am an accredited bereavement counsellor, supervisor and trainer for Cruse Bereavement Care. I also have extensive experience of working with younger adults wanting to work through some confusing aspects of their lives, including relationships and understanding their sexuality.

In addition I have a particular interest in working in multi-cultural settings, including working with interpreters, and also working with people who have issues with eating and food.

I am also a lecturer in counselling and psychotherapy students at Edge Hill University and at the University of Huddersfield.  I have previously taught at the University of Leeds and Leeds Beckett University.
My practice is in calm and tranquil surroundings in a residential area of Chapel Allerton in North Leeds. There is ample free parking in the building's private car park and on the street outside. My therapy room is on the ground floor of Gledhow Mount Mansion, and is fully accessible for wheelchair users or anyone with mobility needs.

I provide psychotherapy and counselling for the issues you want to bring and we will work at your pace, at times and frequency to suit you. The work will be about whatever is important to you.

I am also trained as a coach and can offer coaching in a variety of areas, including life coaching and career coaching.

I can offer daytime and evening appointments.
