About me and my therapy practice

Are you struggling with difficult emotions, low self-esteem, negative childhood experiences or past trauma?

Are you neurodivergent and struggling to navigate a neurotypical world?

How can counselling and psychotherapy help?

I offer a warm, compassionate and empathic space to help you develop self-understanding, compassion and acceptance in the face of difficult life experiences and to promote personal growth and development in your way and according to your values.

I work in a trauma-informed way to help you understand past experiences and their effects in the here and now.

My training and experience

I am qualified to postgraduate level in Integrative Psychotherapy and Counselling. I am trained in trauma-focused CBT for PTSD and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) which offers practical ways to help with anxiety, low mood, stress, addictive behaviour patterns, life changes and transitions, and self esteem. I have also undergone specific training in working with neurodiversity, including autism/Asperger's, ADHD, dyspraxia and dyslexia and have lived experience of being neurodivergent.

I have spent the last 5 years working in various voluntary sector mental health settings, including crisis services, at Leeds Mind at Workplace Leeds and the counselling service and Suicide Bereavement Service, and in trauma and rape crisis counselling services in Bradford and Sheffield.

My experience and training means I can offer an approach that is tailored to your personal needs, strengths and goals.
