About me and my therapy practice

Well done for making this first step! Starting counselling can feel daunting so I'm here to make this process as easy as possible for you. 


I offer one-to-one support to adults and young people at my practice in Leeds centre. Here, you will find a warm, welcoming and confidential space, ideally situated close to the train station. In addition, I have a specialist qualification in counselling online, and thus also offer sessions via video, IM, phone or e-mail. You may find this beneficial if physically attending sessions is a challenge for you, or if you simply prefer the comfort of accessing counselling from home. 

Whilst I have particular expertise supporting in the areas of gender, sexualities, identity, young people and abuse, I am equipped to support around a wide variety of topics. Please see my website for further information.

Furthermore, I have been awarded accreditation by the BACP. This means that my practice has been deemed to meet the higher standards to be recognised as a competent, ethical and independent practitioner. 

If you would like to make an initial (no-cost) appointment, please do get in touch. 

I am also available as a supervisor.

About me and my therapy practice

Hi I'm Debbie and I work with both adults and young people in private practice in Leeds. I also work online and offer phone support which means I work with clients from across the country.

Am I the right supervisor for you?

* I have several years experience supporting in a broad range of issues through providing counselling at Leeds Mind, The Market Place young people's Centre, Bradford Counselling Services, Yorkshire Mesmac and in Private Practice.

*I specialise in the area of Gender, Sexuality and supporting people who are LGBT+ or questioning their gender or sexuality. I also work a lot around masculinity/femininity/androgyny and gender identity. Furthermore, I offer an affirmative approach around relationship diversity (Eg polyamory, open relationships, monogamy). 

* My background in Youth and Community Development Work means I have over 20 years experience in supporting children and young people across a wide variety of issues. Most notably around gender and sexuality and in the area of abuse and exploitation. Indeed, i have specialist experience around supporting boys (as well as girls) who have experienced sexual exploitation. I utilise creative tools to support young clients and hold a current DBS.

*My approach to supervision is that I feel i can best support you to be the best counsellor/practitioner you can be through a positive working relationship. I provide a warm space for you to talk freely and in confidence about your work, offering you emotional support alongside guidance where appropriate.

*If you work online-or have an interest in doing so, I can offer specific support here as I'm trained and qualified as a Cyber (Online) Therapist.

*I read extensively around topics such as the challenge of racism in therapeutic practice, supporting older people ect. I also frequently attend training and engage in regular supervision.
