About me and my therapy practice
I am a fully qualified & experienced counsellor, & have a special interest in the mechanisms of anxiety & stress, panic, & low self-esteem, & how they can be managed & processed. I also have experience of working specifically with adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse & their families; those experiencing bereavement; work-related issues; teaching & education staff; & of helping university students with mental health difficulties to manage their courses. I support clients to safely explore & handle difficult thoughts & emotions, to make sense of areas of life where they may feel stuck, & to gain a better understanding & acceptance of themselves.
I work with individual adult clients on either a short or long term basis depending on individual need. I use a mainly humanistic existential counselling approach, which aims to improve clients’ self-image, personal meaning, & choice. I also use elements from other theories such as cognitive & TA, offering tools to manage difficult situations & thoughts.
I see clients at therapy room in central Leeds near the railway station, & in Birstall on Bradford Road. Daytime, evening & weekend appointments are available. My fee is £45 per 50 minute session. Lower rates can be offered on Wednesdays in Leeds for low income clients. Please email or ring if you would like to book an appointment or have any questions.
