About me and my therapy practice

I am an empathic, warm, experienced counsellor. I offer a safe space with no judgement, where we explore together what is going on for you and what positive changes you want to make.

I can work with a wide range of issues, on a short or long term basis. I work face to face, online or over the phone. 

I work in a person centred way, which means we work at your pace on the issues you want to bring. I won't tell you what to do because I consider you to be the expert on yourself as an individual, but I will help you to work out the right strategies and ways forward for you. I am able to draw on the depth and breadth of my experience to find a smooth journey through therapy for you, using many different techniques. 

I offer in person work from a counselling room at the Brackenwood Community Association in LS8. There is unfortunately a flight of stairs to this room, but please let me know if this would be a problem so that we can arrange something accessible to you. 

Practice description

I specialise in working with people with chronic health conditions and disabilities. I have a genuine understanding of the emotional impact of dealing with physical health problems, disability, invisible illness and chronic pain. I can help with issues like coming to terms with a diagnosis, dealing with the medical system, frustration and grief about physical limitations, plus the impact on your work, family and relationships.

I also have particular interest and experience in parenting, carer and work related issues.

I love working creatively, and have previously worked in issue based theatre around mental health and homelessness. I also worked as a mental health advocate for 7 years, helping people have their voices heard in many different situations.

I qualified as a counsellor in 2007 and I worked with young people at The Market Place in Leeds for 9 years. I am BACP registered.

I offer a free initial 30 minute phone call, with no obligation, so you can see if it feels right for us to work together.
