About me and my therapy practice
I provide integrative counselling and psychotherapy for individuals outdoors, indoors, and remotely via phone or video conferencing.
Have you decided you would like some support and started to look into counselling and psychotherapy, but does the idea of sitting in a small windowless office whilst you explore your inner thoughts fill you with dread? Maybe outdoor therapy is for you?
By being outdoors we can over come the intensity of being in a small office, it allows us to be side by side on your journey and creates a balance between us that can create a stronger therapeutic relationship. Being in nature you are surrounded by the cycles of our natural world and this can be incredibly useful during your own explorations of your cycles of behaviour.
Outdoor sessions vary depending on you. I have a variety of routes depending on what you need, gentle walks in the open, woodland walks or something more strenuous.
The modality I work from is Integrative, which just means I pull from different theories to tailor your therapy to suit you. The basis on my approach is Person Centred – meaning that you are in control of the sessions and what you discuss. The heart of my approach is to create a safe space for you to explore your thoughts and that we develop a strong therapeutic relationship to allow for change to take place.
I also work face to face indoors from an office space in South Leeds with good transport links, as well as working remotely via phone or video conferencing.
I am a member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) and I work within their ethical guidelines. I hold an up to date DBS certificate, I am insured and first aid trained.
I have been practicing for 4 years and have worked with a wide range of clients, including but not limited to; general anxiety, depression, bereavement, survivors of sexual abuse and relationship problems.
My first session
Interested but still not sure what to expect? Finding a therapist is like trying to find the perfect pair of shoes, the fit must be right! I offer a free 15-minute telephone call to discuss your needs and give you the chance to ask any questions you might have. If you then decided you would like to ahead and book a session, we will have an initial session where we will go over the contracting and route planning (if outdoors). We would then book in your first session and your away!
A lot of people ask how the outdoor sessions work, well they are the same as indoor sessions just outside! Of course, there are additional areas to consider, such as the weather, confidentiality, and fitness levels, but don’t worry these sessions are not “physical workouts” they are tailored to what you want.
If you have any questions, please do get in touch and we can discuss those further.
