About me and my therapy practice

Hi, I am an accredited counsellor and I offer warm, compassionate counselling from my office in Marsden. 

I work with people with a wide range of issues including bereavement, anxiety and relationship breakdown, but I specialise in working with people who have issues from the past that are concerning them today.

These issues could have arisen in many ways, some people may have experienced trauma and abuse, others may be struggling to process a bereavement, and sometimes people wish to explore complex relationships. Whatever the issue might be, we can work through this together at your pace to find a way to move forward. 

In my work, I believe that the relationship between counsellor and client is really important. From my own experience of counselling, I know that I would have found it hard to open up if I didn't trust my counsellor. Because of this, I work hard to help people feel at ease and my aim is to provide a compassionate presence, where clients can feel safe.

My previous counselling experience has included working with men and women who have experienced sexual and/or domestic abuse, working with substance addiction, and working with loss, stress and low self-esteem. 

Since qualifying I have continued to develop my knowledge and skills around trauma and my recent CPD has included

Safeguarding Adults Level 3

Safeguarding Children Level 3

The fawn response

Vicarious trauma

Pre-trial therapy in depth

and Working with bereavement

Practice description

I offer face-to-face sessions in Marsden, I also offer remote sessions over Zoom or the telephone.

Whichever way you choose, I am passionate about providing an environment where you can feel heard, and safe to explore the issues that are concerning you without fear of judgment.

My fees are £50 for each 50-minute session and I offer concessions for Trainee Counsellors.

I understand the importance of confidentiality in the counselling relationship. Throughout the time that we work together, your privacy will be important to me and I am committed to taking care of your personal information. Before any counselling starts we will discuss this in more detail, and I have included a link to my Privacy Policy on my Website. 

My first session

I understand that the relationship between the client and the counsellor is really important, sometimes it can just be useful to get a feeling of what it might be like talking to the other person before you commit to working with them.

Because of this, I offer a free, 30-minute telephone consultation without any obligation. This session gives you the chance to ask any questions that you might have, and for us to get to know each other a little better.

I can understand that it can be difficult reaching out for the first time, but please be assured that anything you say will be treated with kindness and respect.

I am training to become a supervisor, and I currently have availability in the daytime for a small number of supervisees.

I am offering this supervision free for your first 5 supervision sessions, and if we decide to continue working together after the introductory period, the fee will be at my normal rate (currently £50 per hour).

Unfortunately at this time I am unable to work with student counsellors, or counsellors who are living/working outside the UK, if you have any questions, or you would like further information, please send me a message and I will get in touch.

About me and my therapy practice

Hi, my name is Diane, and I am a trainee supervisor looking to complete the final stages of my training.

I am an Accredited counsellor with the BACP, and at the moment I work in private practice from Marsden near Huddersfield. I can also offer remote supervision by zoom.

As a supervisor I work with the Seven-Eyed Model of Supervision, I aim to offer a space where you can explore your work in a supportive environment. I believe that the relationship between the Supervisor and Supervisee is incredibly important, and I welcome an initial informal conversation to see if we fit together well.

Practice description

I qualified as a counsellor in 2018 with a Level 4 Diploma, and my base modality was (and still is) Person-Centred Counselling. Since qualifying, I have also attended training in Polyvagal Theory and the use of creative techniques. I have also completed courses in working with trauma and working with bereavement.

My previous counselling experience has also included working with men and women who have experienced sexual abuse, providing specialist domestic violence counselling, providing counselling for people who have experienced substance addiction, and working with loss, relationship issues, stress and low self-esteem.

Prior to becoming a counsellor I had over 20 years experience of supporting people. This included working as a Probation Officer and a Teacher. For 3 years I taught counselling skills at a local FE college.
