JAnina Grimshaw counsellor

Hi, my name’s Janina and I am a fully qualified therapist working from the Victoria Therapy Centre in Saltaire.

I am experienced in working as a counsellor with adults and young people, and I work with clients aged 15+. I have a background in inclusion and safeguarding so I work with a wide range of people and have a particular specialism in neurodivergence, including Autism and ADHD.

You may be looking for support to process difficult events, time to explore your own sense of identity, or space to allow your feelings to be heard. Taking the decision to start counselling can be a difficult and daunting step and my priority is to ensure that we work together at a pace that feels right for you.

I describe my approach as client-led and I adopt an integrative, relational approach to counselling. This means that I work uniquely with every person I support. We are all individuals and I passionately believe that there is no ‘one size fits all’ approach. I offer a safe, non-judgemental space in which we collaborate to find the best approach for you, ensuring that you gain what you want and need from our time together.


I am experienced in working as a counsellor with adults and young people, and I work with clients aged 15+ following a background in education, inclusion and safeguarding, with extensive experience and specialism in neurodivergence, including Autism and ADHD.

I have worked as a teacher and senior leader in education (with responsibility for SEND, Safeguarding and Mental Health), as well as an
Emotional Wellbeing Worker across a cluster of schools in Leeds

I can support clients with:

  • Abuse;
  • Anxiety;
  • Autism;
  • Depression;
  • Identity issues;
  • Learning Disabilities;
  • Learning Differences;
  • Loss;
  • Neurodiversity;
  • Self-esteem;
  • Sexual identity;
  • Stress; and
  • Work-related issues.


I am a fully qualified and insured therapist, with a Post-Graduate Diploma (Distinction) in Counselling and Psychotherapy from Leeds Beckett University. As a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), I abide by their ethical framework.

I am an integrative, relational therapist. This means that I regard the therapeutic relationship between counsellor and client as the foundation of our work together. As every person is unique, every therapeutic relationship is too, so the way we work together will be individual to you. From my
core as a person-centred therapist, I draw on techniques and theories from various branches of psychotherapy but, ultimately, we will always work in a way that serves you best.
