About me and my therapy practice

Hello and Welcome. I am a qualified Therapist providing counselling and psychotherapy to adults, young people and children who are experiencing emotional and mental health difficulties. Counselling and psychotherapy offer you a safe space and time to feel listened to, accepted and understood.

I offer a confidential, calm, empathic and non-judgemental space where you can explore your thoughts, feelings and experiences. I work in a person-centred way, meaning I tailor the therapy to suit each individual's needs, and work with you at your own pace towards experiencing life in a more positive way.

Therapy works best when the relationship between therapist and client is strong, and I aim to build a therapeutic relationship based on empathy, respect, and genuineness.

I describe my approach as humanistic and integrative. Humanistic practice recognises each person as unique and valuable, with the potential in yourself to experience life more positively. As an integrative practitioner, I draw on a wide range of tools and techniques from different therapies to help each individual client. These include: trauma-informed approaches, CBT, Transactional Analysis, Attachment theory, Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, play therapy, creative methods, Solution-focussed Therapy and Mindfulness.

Prior to working in private practice, I worked as a Counsellor/Psychotherapist for 7 years, with both adults and children. My work with adults was with a community-based award-winning charity in West Leeds, and with young adults in a further/higher education college in South Yorkshire. I also worked extensively with children and young people (aged 5-18) in a wide range of primary and high school settings in West and North Yorkshire, including the private school sector. In addition, I bring significant life experience from previous careers

Practice description

My private practice (Diane Collett Counselling) is based in the centre of Wakefield, five minutes walk from Wakefield Westgate station, and there is a council car park opposite the building. I have had the privilege and joy of working in the context of private practice for a number of years.

I work flexibly, and can offer a mixture of face to face and online/phone sessions, to suit client need.

For children and young people, online sessions are possible for young people over 12 years old, but for younger children, all sessions held are face to face at the Therapy Rooms, Wakefield. These premises include a beautiful, bespoke space for working therapeutically with this age group.

My first session

After initial enquiry, I offer an assessment/consultation session, so we can decide together if I am the right therapist to help you.
