About me and my therapy practice
I am a psychotherapist and I work in Leeds city centre and in Roundhay, Leeds 8, where I provide a safe space for clients to talk. As an integrative therapist I will tailor different therapies to suit you. My belief is that therapy cannot be rushed and only you know what is best for you. You will be in control of your therapy. Nothing will be expected from you and things will unfold at your own pace.
My qualifications are:
• Postgraduate Diploma in Counselling and Psychotherapy (Leeds Beckett University)
• Postgraduate Diploma in Legal Practice (Leeds Beckett University)
• Postgraduate Diploma in Management (Chartered Management Institute)
• MA (Cantab) Hons (Law) (University of Cambridge)
Alongside my private work, I am a volunteer counsellor at St Gemma's Hospice in Leeds, working with bereaved clients two afternoons each week. I have a special interest in incurable illness.
I also have recent experience of counselling sex abuse survivors, having worked for 18 months one day a week as a volunteer counsellor at Mosaic II, a specialist centre in Bradford.
As a university personal tutor for the past 20 years, I have been dedicated to the pastoral care of around 500 students. My experience means I am attuned to the difficult challenges of academic life. I offer my student clients a discounted price.
As a solicitor I have worked with clients exposed to domestic violence and relationship breakdown, those who have suffered physical and psychiatric injury and victims of medical accidents. My long working life in the legal sector has given me in depth personal experience of workplace stress.
I have the significant life experience and maturity for deep empathy, a very calm demeanour and I am an excellent active listener.
