It may have taken you a while to come to the decision to start counselling. It can feel like a big first step.
As your counsellor, I believe our relationship is an important factor in the work we do together. This 'therapeutic relationship' is unlike no other and I provide you with a safe and confidential space to explore the issues you bring.
I am a Humanistic counsellor, which means I use a variety of approaches and modalities, including Person Centred therapy, Solution Focused techniques and I also draw on Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT techniques) & Transitional Analysis.
Initial assessments with me are usually 50-60 minutes long and thereafter counselling sessions are 50 minutes. Sessions are usually each week or fortnightly.
I work with men & women who come to counselling looking for support on a range of difficulties. I also work with couples as a relationship counsellor.
You may be a trainee counsellor looking for support and I can offer you the counselling space you require.
As well as working with clients who contact me direct, I take referrals from employers from a range of UK companies.
Work stress/relational issues can be difficult to manage and you may benefit from a space to talk. I am committed to helping you to move forward.
I have a wealth of experience working in the school/Education sector, counselling school staff.
Whether you are experieincing difficulties at work or in your personal life, I can offer you a space to be heard.
While you take your time to 'unravel' the things you are struggling with, together we can explore some of the underlying issues behind these difficulties.
Caring for yourself is not a luxury and counselling offers YOU the time to look at the things in your life that are preventing you from moving forward.
You can also find me on BACP's Find a Therapist website, Counselling Directory and Psychology Today.
I am one of the practioners at Healthwise Therapy in Chapel Allerton, Leeds 7.
