The majority of my work is being carried out over the telephone or via Zoom, as I ensure to keep my clients safe during this pandemic. I am happy to use other platforms (providing they are secure).
I am offering a small number of face to face sessions. Please contact me for further information.
It may have taken you a while to come to the decision to start counselling.
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 build a trusting and warm relationship with my clients.
As a Humanistic counsellor 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).
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 and couples. 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 experieince 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.
I am part of the practioner team at Healthwise Therapy in Leeds 7.
