About me

I am a BACP Accredited therapist (adults) also UKCP trained as a Psychotherapeutic Counseller of Children and Adolescents with the Northern Guild of Psychotherapy. I have worked in many settings including NHS IAPT, Third Sector agencies and Primary and Secondary schools as a parent and child therapist.
I currently offer face to face, online Counselling through Zoom (download free from google playstore) and telephone.
It is important to me that people feel accepted and safe with me at what is most likely a vulnerable time and I work at your pace to build a trusting, confidential relationship.

I am a Relational Practitioner and look at how past relationships may be impacting on your present to help you gain greater clarity about current situations and relationships. I also use more cognitive models and the Rewind Technique to help people deal with trauma. I am interested in sand tray work which can be a useful intervention to help those that overthink to access their emotions. I will work collaboratively with you to tailor the work to your needs. We can work creatively if that is your preference.

You may be at a crossroads in your life, have experienced a life event such as bereavement, redundancy, divorce or retirement or be in need of a space to share what you are going through. Maybe you have felt unhappy all of your life and don't know why? These things can be explored safely in therapy to help you understand yourself and your situation better and to get what you want from life.

I see private clients between 12-7pm on Thursdays at the Old Surgery in Meanwood and 9-6 Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays in my room in Horsforth.
