  • I am a qualified counsellor, psychotherapist and supervisor experienced in providing counselling and psychotherapy to hundreds of people
  • Based in Leeds city centre (LS1) and the Bramley/Stanningley area (LS28) I provide counselling, psychotherapy and supervision
  • I am accredited counsellor/psychotherapist with The British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy meaning my practice has been deemed sufficiently ethical
  • Since 2004 I have provided one-to-one counselling and psychotherapy to children, young people and adults
  • I have significant experience in working with stress, depression, anxiety, trauma, bereavement, anger, issues related to sexual orientation and low self-esteem
  • I have specialist experience in working with those who have experienced historic or recent sexual abuse/violence
  • I provide therapeutic support for emotional difficulties, techniques to deal with stress and anxiety and help in understanding why you respond/behave the way you do

For short video about the counselling I offer please visit my website: http://counsellorinleeds.co.uk/counselling/ 

I work with people to help them address issues that are preventing them from living their life in the way they want and to explore ways of appropriately, realistically and effectively addressing these issues.

People come to counselling for many different reasons and part of my role is to help them make the best use of our time together by identifying what they’d like to achieve from counselling. I do not tell people what to do or make them talk about things they don’t want to but I do help people to address and express their feelings, explore their thoughts and understand their behaviour and reactions in a safe, therapeutic and non-judgemental environment. 

I am an eclectic counsellor/psychotherapist which means I will use different elements of therapeutic approaches, namely Person Centred Counselling, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT). I will tailor my approach specifically for you.

What I can help with

Addictions, Eating disorders, Self-harm, Abuse, Anxiety, Bereavement, Depression, Loss, Post-traumatic stress, Trauma, Personal development, AIDS/HIV, Health related issues, Identity issues, Men's issues, Self esteem, Sexual identity, Sexuality, Child related issues, Relationships, Anger management, Redundancy, Stress, Work related issues

Types of therapy

Brief therapy, CBT, Emotion focused therapy, Eclectic, Humanistic, Integrative, Person centred, Solution focused brief therapy

Clients I work with

Adults, Children, EAP, Older adults, Organisations, Young people

How I deliver therapy

Long-term face-to-face work, Online counselling, Short-term face-to-face work, Time-limited

About me and my therapy practice

I have provided supervision to qualified and trainee counsellors since 2012 and to practitioners working with children affected by child sexual exploitation (CSE) since 2010. I provide Person Centred and also integrative/eclectic supervision…

  • I hold a Post Graduate Certificate in Person Centred supervision awarded to me by Temenos
  • Since 2010 I have provided supervision to practitioners working with children affected by child sexual exploitation (CSE)
  • Since 2012 I have provided supervision to qualified and trainee counsellors
  • I am experienced in providing Person Centred and also integrative/eclectic supervision
  • I am experienced in supervising those working in schools, colleges, GP surgeries, voluntary sector services and other counselling organisations
  • I have significant experience in working with safeguarding issues and supervising those working with children in high risk situations
  • I am experienced in supervising those who are counselling clients affected by trauma and expressing suicidal thoughts
  • I also supervision to practitioners working in organisations such as youth services, sexual health services, domestic abuse services, children's charities, CSE services and sexual abuse counselling services

For short video about the supervision I offer please visit my website: http://counsellorinleeds.co.uk/supervision/

I believe that by establishing and maintaining a healthy and collaborative relationship where supervisees can experience the core conditions of empathy, genuineness and acceptance, a safe enough space can be created where various issues relating to client work, practice and professional development can be addressed, discussed and explored in a way that is helpful to the supervisee.

My role is to work with what the supervisee brings to supervision, in a way that can help develop their practice and help them grow as a counsellor. I can provide the appropriate environment where supervisees can discuss any difficulties they may be experiencing, explore alternative approaches, be open to appropriate challenge and highlight what is going well.

Supervision is available face to face and via FaceTime.

About me and my therapy practice

Training Courses
- Sharing my story of male rape, sexual abuse and exploitation
- Identifying boys at risk of sexual abuse/exploitation
- Working with boys and men

My Training Experience
As someone who has experienced rape and child sexual exploitation (CSE) and supported many boys and men who have experienced sexual abuse I am appropriately placed to provide training addressing male sexual abuse and exploitation. I also have significant experience in public speaking addressing issues related to male sexual abuse.

Since 2009 I have developed nationally recognised male sexual abuse/exploitation training and delivered this to thousands of professionals across the country. The training aims to increase the identification of boys at risk of sexual exploitation, challenge gender biased practice, understand male abuse and explore how to work with males.

High quality training is informed by my many years of practice, working with boys and men affected by sexual abuse/exploitation and is delivered in a dynamic and engaging way, using interactive methods and anecdotal stories from personal and professional experiences.

I have also worked with various organisations and practitioners to help make their services and practice accessible to, and inclusive of males.

I have delivered training to large children's charities, voluntary sector organisations, child sexual exploitation services, youth provisions, counselling organisations, CAMHS services, educational professionals, sexual health practitioners, other health professionals, housing workers, children's social care, safeguarding children boards and various police forces and local authority work forces
