About me and my therapy practice

I offer mainly person-centred and CBT therapy; working collaboratively with clients in order to give them greater choice in how they would like to experience counselling. 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 am able to help clients explore their feelings, thoughts and emotions and better understand and manage them. 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 Certificate in CBT.

I have varied experience including working with adults and young people in both private practice and within a counselling charity. I am also experienced in working specifically with teenagers 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.
