About me and my therapy practice
I am a qualified & experienced counsellor, & see individual adult clients. I can help you find ways to work through concerns such as anxiety, stress, depression & low self-esteem. I also have experience of working with clients who are survivors of childhood sexual abuse & their families, & those struggling with bereavement. I won't judge you or tell you what to do, but will support & encourage you to explore & manage difficult thoughts & emotions; make sense of areas of life where you may feel 'stuck'; & to identify any choices or possible changes you may want to make.
I use a mainly humanistic counselling approach, which helps clients to explore life issues & events, & find a fresh personal focus or meaning for them, so easing confusion & distress. I also include elements of cognitive, & Transactional Analysis theories, which provide tools for managing difficult emotions & situations.
My therapy rooms are in central Leeds & Wakefield, & I offer daytime, evening & weekend appointments, which are about 50 minutes in length. The first session will be an assessment appointment to explore your needs & goals from the process, & agree how we will work on them. My fee is £40 per appointment.
