About me and my therapy practice

Hello, I have worked as a private therapist in Brighouse, since 2013.

I work from my  dedicated counselling room in Rastrick, either face to face or online using Zoom. I work with individuals and couples.

I offer therapy to suit you. I can work in a person centred way, helping you to reflect and be inquisitive, or I can use aspects of other therapy styles, often incorporating these at different stages of the therapy process when it will be helpful. This might mean we talk about your childhood, and what habits and beliefs you might have developed from your family. We may talk about what it is to be you, your understanding of the world and how you see yourself. I also find it useful to work creatively using drawing or objects when words don't seem to be good enough.

For couples I can offer a space where we unpick and change patterns of behaviours and reactivity that cause dissatisfaction in your relationship

Mindfulness is important in my practice. I work in a compassionate, non-judgemental way, and offer the opportunity to learn how to apply mindfulness in your life, if you feel this might help. Mindfulness can be useful if your problems are made worse by lots of thinking, and anxiety. 

Practice description

I trained as an Integrative therapist; I am able to apply different therapies to help you.

I am also a Mindfulness teacher. Mindfulness has been shown to be of particular benefit for depression and anxiety. I run the MBSR course.

I offer appointments during the day and on a Wednesday evening. I encourage weekly appointments if possible. Each appointment lasts an hour. The first appointment is an assessment and is £35.

I am flexible so you do not need to have the same appointment each week although it can help.

Therapy itself can last a few weeks to several years. I do not limit how long I will work with you, we can decide what feels most appropriate for you. 

Finally, therapy is most importantly about whether two people can talk, be honest and trust each other especially through tough times. I always feel it an honour when someone feels they want to take that risk. 


My first session

Our first appointment allows us to see whether we can work together. There is no commitment. 

It is important you feel that I can offer you what you want, and that you feel I can understand you.

I also need to assess whether I can provide you with what you need. 

This appointment lasts 1 hour. There is some administrative work, I will gather some basic information, and give you my contract which includes a privacy agreement and my cancellation policy, this might take 10 minutes. I will then tell you about how I work. 

For most of the appointment you can tell me about yourself, your problems, how you think they might have arisen. I will ask some questions for clarification. 

Finally I will summarise what I understand of your concerns and share how I might be able to help.
