About me and my therapy practice
You may be facing difficulties in your life or have a sense that things aren’t working. I feel we all have an inbuilt capacity to grow and achieve our full potential given the right conditions. I provide a safe, open and supportive space where you can be honest and say what you want to say without any conditions of judgement. Together we can untangle and explore the thoughts, feelings, behaviours and beliefs that are impacting on your life.
I love my job and care deeply about my work. I have a compassionate, sincere approach and aim to help to empower people in a way that allows them to believe in themselves and connect with their true self. I endorse individuality and autonomy.
People come to counselling for all sorts of reasons, to talk in confidence about anything that is troubling them either from present life, from the past, or worries about the future. Often our life and relationships can be affected by significant life events from our past that remain unresolved which have a tendency to come with us into the present, causing emotional pain, knocking our confidence, leaving us feeling depressed, confused, full of anxiety and low self-esteem.
Practice descriptionI am an integrative therapist which means I draw from a range of different counselling approaches, however my main concern is to build a strong and caring therapeutic relationship where you can feel heard and understood, accepted and respected. My aim is to help themes and issues emerge and help you gain a better understanding of what is going on for you, enabling you to live a more satisfying life.
I am registered with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and abide by their codes of conduct. I take regular supervision in this respect.
My first session
I work on a one-to-one basis either online or from my therapy room in Satori in Wakefield. I offer a free initial call giving us a chance to get to know each other a little before you commit to anything. It's important you find a counsellor you feel comfortable with.
Drop me an e-mail to arrange a time to have an informal chat. I look forward to hearing from you.
