About me

Welcome ….. thank you for visiting my profile.


Contacting me:

Choosing a therapist or counsellor can be a difficult and confusing process so, if you have any questions you can contact me confidentially either by email or by phone.

My phones are usually on silent so as not to interrupt a session with a client.  However, they both have an answering service so leave a message, with your name, number and possible times for me to call back.

I will return your call or reply to your email within two working days.


Why counselling?:

As with many people these days, I reached a point in my life where the job I had was no longer challenging or fulfilling.  So I set out on a journey of discovery, both academic and personal, which has been demanding and challenging at times, but which also has the great reward of being able to witness and be a part of the healing journey that others are making.   Sometimes the way can be deeply troubling and emotionally painful for people, but there is also healing, peace, comfort, joy and new beginnings to be discovered and experienced.

I am constantly reminded of our amazing ability to heal from the pain and distress that is so often part of life.


Qualifications:

Along the way I have gathered academic qualifications in counseling and psychotherapy and additional training which includes Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR), Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), Equine Facilitated Psychotherapy (EFP), Transactional Analysis (TA) and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT).   I also have experience of working in a variety of settings with many different people and issues.


Experience:

I began with voluntary work for Cruse Bereavement Care where I saw many people who were facing the pain of loss, whether that was through natural causes or some kind of traumatic event.  During my time with Cruse I worked as a bereavement support worker, a member of the Crisis team, bereavement support group facilitator and as a supervisor.

This was followed by several years working in NHS adult psychology departments where I met people who were facing difficulties such as depression, anxiety and panic attacks, phobias, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), abuse, childhood trauma, relationship difficulties and post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

When I started up in private practice I also worked part time in a therapeutic community that provides long-term residential support and therapy for adults with severe emotional disorders.

On many occasions I have provided on-site counselling support to employees following a Critical Incident. These are typically traumatic events such as armed robberies, serious accidents at work and sudden, unexpected death.


Private practise:

I have now been in private practice for more than 15 years.  My office-based sessions are held in the attractive setting of Queen Square in Leeds city centre.  My rooms are comfortable, confidential and quiet.  


Access:

Queen Square is easily accessible by car and public transport. There are 3 car parks within a 2 minute walk, the train station is about a 12 minute walk away and there are many bus stops within easy reach.


I am committed to high standards of professional and ethical practice.
