About me and my therapy practice

I offer face to face sessions to people who are looking for support through talking therapy. Our sessions will be based out of my private room in Greengates, which is easily accessible from Leeds and Bradford. Sessions are usually the same time weekly and will last 50 minutes

My approach is holistic, collaborative and respectful with a focus on working with you to find the answers you might be looking for and find a new way forward together.

I believe that different people need different things and as such I aim to work with you to create an approach that suits your needs, circumstances and life experiences. My practice is open to all including those who identify as LGBTQ+ and people from diverse cultural backgrounds.

Finding a therapist that you feel comfortable with is an important part of your journey and as such I invite you to consider if my therapy services might be the help you need. 

If you would like to arrange a brief call before booking an appointment to discuss any questions you might have then please feel free to get in touch by mobile or email.

Practice description

It might be difficult to believe that talking therapy could work. My experience, both personally and professionally has shown that when people are offered a space in which to openly explore their concerns with compassion and safety they can find profound comfort and healing in this. Talking through your experiences is often the first step towards making them more manageable. Having someone who truly listens join you in a real and in-depth conversation in this way can provide unique insights that help you to develop your self awareness and understanding of yourself.

If you’ve never been to therapy before, I know that taking that first step and reaching out can be a daunting task. For this reason, I aim to support you as best I can in the process.

Many people find it helpful to have an initial discussion either in person or over the phone to see if we would be a good fit to work together. If we decide to go forward, I can support you in exploring what might be concerning you in a way that feels safe to you. I will listen carefully whilst acknowledging that there are no easy answers. Together, we can explore what those answers might be by leaning into your emotions, understanding your values, finding meaning and recognising patterns that may no longer serve you, and the ones that do.

I am a relational practitioner, meaning that I recognise the value of understanding yourself from the perspective of your past, your present or both. I believe that the therapeutic relationship is the most important factor of good therapeutic outcomes and as such the relationship that we build can help us to navigate your experiences together.

Giving yourself this space and time to be heard can help you to feel valued, think more clearly, strengthen your sense of self and find more fulfilment in your life. 

My first session

I offer a free 20 minute phone consultation to answer any questions you might have before booking your first session. 

Your first therapy session would be an opportunity for us to see if we would work well together and talk about what you might be looking to achieve from therapy.
