About me and my therapy practice
I am a warm, down to earth counsellor/psychotherapist. I work in a way that is respectful, ethical and at a pace to suit you.
Whether you are finding it difficult to cope, would like support for a specific issue or are feeling stuck, therapy can offer you a safe, confidential space to explore your difficulties.
You are unique. I understand only you can be the expert on how you feel and what you experience yet that you may feel overwhelmed and stuck. Through developing a trusting therapeutic relationship, I will work with you to achieve clarity and to better use your personal resources to make the changes you seek.
How I work:
I work psychodynamically and integrate elements of other approaches to best address your needs. My approach perceives you as a whole person (mind, body and spirit) in a social and cultural context. Alongside talking about your thoughts and emotions, I may also encourage you to share what you sense physically. We may explore your beliefs, patterns in relationships and the influence of past experience to support your self-awareness.
The quality of the therapeutic relationship we develop is key to successful therapy, I aim to grow a space of safety and trust from which to explore what you bring.
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 and Skipton.
If you are thinking of working with me, please get in touch. I am happy to answer any questions you have, and I offer a free, no obligation 15-minute telephone discussion to help you decide if you would like to meet me for an initial session.
My fees are £45 for a fifty-minute session and for the initial consultation.
I am open to discussion concerning special circumstances.
