About me and my therapy practice

As a director of the private practice, Sheffield Central Counselling, I offer sessions at discreet premises in Sheffield City Centre. Recently I have been working with clients to help them with issues such as anxiety, relationship break-ups, sexual abuse, and low confidence, self-esteem. 

Over the years in private practice I have helped hundreds of Sheffield people make positive changes in their lives. Some of them had serious issues that made life very difficult for them. Others had less pressing issues, but they decided they wanted to take action to change them, with the help of a counsellor. Sometimes people feel they just want to talk through some issue before coming to a decision. I am proud to be a 'generalist' practitioner: I am very happy to work with a wide range of issues, and broad experience in this way. I do also have some specialisms: 

I am a kink aware counsellor and work in a non-pathologising way with different sexualities I have considerable experience in working with trauma, from things like workplace accidents, combat trauma, to abuse

Here are what some recent clients have said about my practice:

"I just wanted to say an absolutely heartfelt thank you for everything you've done.  I'm in a hugely improved place now, and a large part of that has come from the insight and technique I've learned in our sessions."

"I sought counselling because my interest in kink had led me into real danger. I found that part of me an alien threat. Together Bay and I didn’t just eliminate a threat- we turned that part of me into an asset I now embrace. Our work also supported me successfully through one of the major battles of my life in my employment. I am very pleased with the work we did and it has helped me to enrich my life and my relationships."
