About me and my therapy practice
I see clients in a clinic in the centre of Keighley or in the Yoga centre in Saltaire - both are easily accessed by public transport.
Being open and adaptable is at the centre of my therapy approach and this helps me to establish good relationships. Working collaboratively, I use a range of therapy skills to suit various needs and preferences, with a view to enabling clients to reflect and gain perspective. I provide a supportive and safe environment for clients to explore their difficulties, develop insights and manage change.
My approach is integrative; using methods from Psychodynamic Counselling, EMDR therapy, Transactional Analysis, Mindfulness and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, whilst practising the Person-Centred core conditions.
• I use a mix of counselling methods and skills as the most valuable basis for focusing on, understanding and meeting clients needs.
• For people who may be distressed by traumatic experiences, I offer Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing as an experienced and accredited EMDR therapist.
• As a trained Mindfulness practitioner, I can also offer individual guidance through a mindfulness-based programme or integrate aspects of mindfulness into counselling sessions.
I have 20 years of counselling experience in various services; including in the NHS, EAPs, education, charitable and private organisations and am a qualified counselling supervisor.
