- Phone number
I am currently offering counselling sessions online and via telephone during the pandemic. Alternatively, if you would like face to face counselling please get in touch so we can discuss this further. It may be that you choose to walk and talk or wait for a face to face session in my unique counselling space overlooking tranquil waters, situated in LS25 (South Milford), with easy access from the A1 and M62.
About me and my therapy practice
I am a fully qualified BACP registered counsellor supporting clients with a wide range of issues. As an integrative counsellor, I work with you drawing on a number of approaches and techniques to reflect your individuality. I understand everyone has their own unique struggles and experiences and sometimes it feels difficult to process our thoughts and feelings. I work respectfully at a pace that feels right for you to enable you to understand yourself more fully.
Maybe you have experienced loss or trauma that was out of your control and your ability to cope has been impacted. I aim to provide you with a space that feels safe, a supportive space to explore what is going on for you without the fear of judgement. Clients say this is hugely beneficial as they begin to feel heard and accepted.
This unique space maybe somewhere you can cry, a confidential space where you can speak about aspects of your life which may have been hidden, a space to get angry or even laugh, whatever you may bring to counselling I will support your needs.
I see my role as being alongside you on this journey, where we work collaboratively and explore what choices you may have and any changes you wish to make towards living a more for-filling life.
I currently provide counselling at Well Women in Wakefield, which is a women’s only organisation. I have also worked as a counsellor at Cruse Bereavement, working with bereaved adults. I also have experience supporting 16-25-year-olds working as a counsellor at Selby College.
I work using a Humanistic approach, where I believe with the right support everyone can gain the capacity to grow and change.
I place a great amount of emphasis on the therapeutic relationship and believe the quality is key. I hope for you to gain understanding and insight as I support and encourage you to find your own solutions as you embark on a new journey.
I may also suggest working creatively, as with all counselling you do not have to do anything that doesn’t feel right for you.
My first session
Please feel free to contact me by email, text or telephone and we can arrange a 20-minute phone call where you can ask me any questions. This session is free of charge with no obligation and gives you the opportunity to ask any questions and decide if you would like us to work together.
I understand that taking the first step can often feel like the hardest when life feels tough and you may feel alone. It can take a huge amount of strength to reach out. I assure you I will do my utmost to enable you to feel comfortable by creating a warm, safe and accepting atmosphere to enable us to build trust and rapport to establish a connection for therapeutic work to begin.
