About me and my therapy practice
I am an integrative therapist based in the Wakefield area. Integrative means I use multiple counselling approaches and techniques within my work, therefore I can work in a way that best suits each individual client rather than be fixed to one specific mode of therapy.
I qualified in 2017 and became Accredited by the BACP in 2019.
I have a special interest in anxiety and low mood/depression, as I believe this is something we can all experience at some point in our lives. My speciality is being able to sit with clients in the emotional pain they are experiencing and be alongside them whilst making sense of it together. I draw upon a range of techniques and methods to do this and always work at the pace the client feels most comfortable with. I have a strong drive to help clients work towards self compassion and empowerment.
I currently work in a women’s only centre providing time-limited IAPT therapy to women of all ages suffering from mental health issues, mainly complex trauma, sexual abuse, childhood sexual abuse, and domestic abuse. Also, a range of other problems such as anxiety, depression, stress, bereavement, eating disorders, addictions, chronic pain conditions, rape, anger management.
I also work for the University of Leeds as part of the Disability Services support worker team, as a Specialist Mentor for students with diagnosed mental health difficulties and other chronic conditions. The mentoring role allows a more developmental therapeutic relationship where there is collaboration and support tailored to a variety of aspects of a students’ life, to encourage and ultimately empower the student.
• Adults (18+): £40 per session.

Each session lasts 60 minutes.
• I offer a free 30-minute introductory session (telephone or online) to see if we might be able to work together
How to make payment:
I am currently accepting bank transfer only. Bank details will be given upon appointment confirmation.
My first session
The first session (after the initial 30-minute introductory session) would be reading and talking through the Counselling Agreement, and I will need some personal information from you, and then I will complete a short clinical assessment with you where we will talk about your wellbeing and what has brought you to therapy. You will have the opportunity to ask questions and we can agree together how you want to work, we can also decide together if I am the right therapist for you.
