About me and my therapy practice

I have been practising as a counsellor,  therapist, supervisor and counselling trainer since 1998 and would describe myself as an Integrative practitioner. 

I am a fully qualified and accredited EMDR Therapist with a great deal of experience with PTSD and Complex PTSD.

Integrative counselling costs £45 and lasts for 50 minutes.

EMDR sessions cost £50 an hour for individuals and charities and £60 an hour for organisations & EAPs. All EMDR sessions last for 90 minutes 

In addition, I am a trained couples therapist. Couples therapy costs £50 and lasts for one hour.

I work with a wide range of issues and in the past have specialised in working with teenagers from the age of 14 upwards.

I am a qualified clinical  supervisor and have experience supervising a wide range of practitioner experience. Supervision costs £50 an hour for individuals and £60 and hour for organisations.

I offer a warm, friendly, highly experienced and professional service and am well worth a visit. 

I have completed training and developed experience with offering regular and trauma focused counselling online. 

Practice description

My practice runs out of a discrete office in central Wakefield, with parking nearby. Unfortunately there is very limited access for wheelchair users but I may be able to work with you online instead. 

I work with people from all kinds of backgrounds who are looking for short and long term work. I have worked with first responders, medical staff, EAPs and charities. Most of my work is trauma focused but not all. My aim is to help you safely work through your difficulties and learn to live with your experiences without them being a burden. 

My first session

In our first session I will ask you to tell me what it is you want to get out of coming for therapy. We will spend some time looking at what factors might be affecting your difficulties, your past, your relationships, your core beliefs, your workplace, your levels of stress and personal confidence. 

I will answer any questions you have about my training and experience, tell you more about how I work and whether I feel I might be able to help. Together we will work out whether I am the right therapist for you, and if I believe I’m not that therapist I will talk to you about what or who you may need instead  there are no strings to the first sessions and you can decide not to continue with no consequences at all. It matters to me that we are the right fit and that I believe I can be helpful.
