APPROACH

My priority throughout my working life has always been to provide a safe space for people, whatever the setting. For my psychotherapy clients, this is important in order to help establish a trusting therapeutic relationship so that they feel able to share their feelings. Not talking about their emotions may be preventing them from moving forward in life.

My focus on trust and creating a safe space comes from my years of experience in working with people in social care. This approach combined with my counselling qualifications enables me to help clients develop an deep understanding of themselves to overcome their personal struggles. I use my training in counselling and CBT in combination, to tailor therapy to suit each client’s needs as necessary. I aim to help them live a happy life, whether it be at work or at home.

EXPERIENCE

Prior to becoming a counsellor, I spent many years working in the social care sector in various roles. I worked with many people including those affected by learning difficulties, neurodiversity, autism and domestic abuse. Whatever the setting and circumstances, I have always been passionate about helping people. I have transferred the skills I developed over this time in caring roles and now help people affected by their mental health.

My specific counselling experience includes working with students suffering with mental health conditions. I provide one-to-one counselling to private clients and to employees whose mental health is affecting their work. I have done regular voluntary work for The Samaritans, Bradford Bereavement Services and Women’s Aid.
