Hi there and thank you for viewing my profile.
I am a Masters Qualified BACP Registered Counsellor and Psychotherapist working in Leeds city centre (LS1) and York (YO41).
As a therapist I help individuals talk about their feelings, think about their choices and help them to achieve positive changes in their lives through the counselling process.
I use an integrative model of counselling & psychotherapy which involves a wide range of counselling theories such as psychodynamic and person-centred therapy.
The process of exploration which we will undertake together will help you achieve greater insight and understanding of your problems. It will help you understand yourself better and help you find solutions to resolve or cope with your situation.
During the therapy session I will encourage you to talk about your life, events, emotions, feelings, ways of thinking and patterns of behaviour. Whilst listening carefully and without judgement I will encourage your thinking to help you to see things more clearly or challenge you to see things in a different way.
My comfortable and relaxing therapy rooms are conveniently located in Leeds and York. In Leeds city centre my therapy room is located five minutes walk from Leeds railway station and has scenic views over the Leeds Liverpool canal and River Aire. In York my therapy room in located in the historical rural village of Stamford Bridge.
In addition to working in private practice at Therapy UK, I also work as a Counsellor and Psychotherapist for Bradford Bereavement Support and Bradford Counselling Services.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
