About me and my therapy practice

As a relational, integrative counsellor, I will help you work through whatever issues you bring to our shared space, using the most appropriate approach. I recognise that what works for one person might not work for another, and no two people feel the same about what might appear to be a similar ‘thing’ on the outside. After all, you are the expert on you.

I have helped people cope who have been bereaved by illness and suicide, who have been affected by self harm and eating issues, who have lived through childhood sexual abuse and trauma, and who are experiencing anxiety, work stress and relationship difficulties. In addition, I am proud to be a Dementia Friend.

Practice description

By working together therapeutically, I will help you see that you can change how you feel about yourself, your life, and your relationships. Whatever you bring to our sessions, we can work towards the outcome you need, be it along the lines of clarity, self compassion and understanding - or a complete emotional overhaul. 

Regular reviews will ensure we are heading along the right path, and we can alter our approach at any time.

I am a mature, fully qualified, BACP registered counsellor and psychotherapist, and I offer a warm, confidential and non-judgemental space in my ‘Horsforth haven’ room or online. 

My practice is called Elpis Therapy - signifying something vital in our times of emotional need: ’hope’.  

My first session

I offer a free, no-commitment 20 minute phone call or Zoom, to ensure we both feel happy to work together, and also to check that our diaries can align.
