About me and my therapy practice
I’ve worked for over 30 years in the NHS in a variety of roles and settings.
My style is warm, relational and non-judgmental. My approach is respectful and ethically informed.
I work to support your recovery through careful, respectful and collaborative co-working. I believe that you are the expert on how you feel and what you experience. My philosophical position is one of ‘not knowing’ though interested in helping you gain understanding while working with you through a safe and empathetic relationship.
I typically work psychodynamically. This means that we may initially consider your current difficulty in the context of your biological, psychological and social experience. We may explore together those important underlying experiences, understanding and patterns of behaviour/coping mechanisms that may now be unhelpful and in need of review and reconsideration.
Through our therapeutic process, I would anticipate that your understanding of yourself in relationship to others becomes reframed and refreshed leading to more insightful and comfortable interactions within your relational world.
I offer an initial consultation of ninety minutes, to take some required details and during which time you might determine how you feel with me.
I work from three rooms, each very close to a train/bus station with convenient parking. They are accessible along the Aire valley in Skipton, Bingley and Leeds. Neither is more than a five to ten-minute walk from the nearest train station. My rooms are comfortable, and offer options for people with reduced mobility in Leeds.
My fees are £45 for a fifty-minute session and for the initial ninety-minute consultation. I am open to discussion concerning special circumstances.
If you think I may be able to help, please contact me. If I am unable to respond straight away, I will respond to you within forty-eight hours, but I would expect much sooner.
