About me and my therapy practice
I am an integrative counsellor, which means I am trained in and use a variety of techniques to best suit the client and their individual needs. I offer mainly Person-centred and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). Person-centred therapy can help you to unravel mixed up emotions and feelings. The aim is for you to feel heard and understood and ultimately come to a better understanding and acceptance of yourself and your experiences. CBT therapy focuses on proactively looking at your problem thinking patterns and behaviours, how they are negatively affecting your life and how we can challenge and change them. The two can be successfully used alongside each other.
I provide a safe, confidential space for clients to freely express themselves without judgement. I strive to achieve a respectful, equal relationship with clients. I believe a good relationship between client and counsellor and the right fit is vital for effective therapy. I offer an initial meeting with no commitments to allow clients to decide whether they would be happy for us to work together. If you are struggling with any aspect of your life, counselling can help.
Education, Training and Experience - I hold a First Class Honours degree in Psychology and Counselling, a Postgraduate Diploma in Counselling and Psychotherapy and a Diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy which entailed a year of post-qualifying further education specialising in CBT.
I have varied experience working with adults and young people. I am also experienced in working specifically with adolescents in an educational setting; including working with clients with learning difficulties and clients on the autistic spectrum. I hold a current DBS certificate and I am fully insured. I work from a private room in a calm, modern office in Halifax town centre with parking facilities. Hours of work are flexible. Please do not hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions.
