About me and my therapy practice

You may be suffering from a loss, struggling with events from your past, or troubled by certain relationships.  Or perhaps life has thrown you a curve ball such as divorce, separation or redundancy and life just seems very difficult to cope with. I believe that the therapeutic relationship is key to bringing about change and I would like us to work together to help you gain insights into what may help you to produce change and some resilience to cope with what lies ahead.  Therapy requires commitment and hard work and taking that first step is daunting.  Yet I believe that each one of us has the capacity and ability to explore difficulties so that over time you will be empowered to face life's current and future challenges, staying true to your values and beliefs.  Even the first session can start to nurture small changes.  

Practice description

I am a fully qualified psychotherapist, registered with the BACP, and adhere to their ethical framework.  I work with adults and young people aged 16+ from my practice office in Denby Dale.

I have worked with men and women with varying levels of counselling needs. I have provided counselling for a bereavement service, and currently volunteer as a counsellor at a charitable organisation, helping clients to explore past relationships, loss, anxiety, low self-esteem, abuse, trauma and anger management. 

I spent many years as an academic at a University and have since been a counsellor in a sixth form college so I have an awareness of the pressures young people face and the ways in which these can affect their lives.
