MY APPROACH

Whatever the reason that brings us to the point of counselling, there is much to be gained, although it’s often not easy and the work will continue for you even once the active therapy ends. The rewards, however, will help to keep you motivated. And these might include the self-awareness that can stem from a better understanding of how we feel, what we need, and what cause these feelings and beliefs to form. We begin to live more intentionally, moving towards what we need and away from that which no longer serves us. Receiving empathy in therapy can help us to develop self-empathy which can be an important part of healing. I believe that insight paired with action leads to the most meaningful change.

WHO I WORK WITH

Particular areas of interest for me include:

  • Working with people struggling with depression and anxiety in a compassion-focused way.
  • Issues relating to post-partum and menopause.
  • Working with significant life changes and issues involving conflict in interpersonal relationships.
  • Due to lived experience within my family, I have developed a particular interest in working with clients from the LGBTQ+ community. I offer a safe, compassionate space in which my clients are free to explore their thoughts and feelings. I am undergoing training and career development in this area.

ABOUT ME

I live in Bingley with my family and spend as much time as I can walking in the woods or enjoying a catch up over a coffee with a friend. Hot baths and watching TV help me switch off, but I combine them with more active hobbies such as writing, yoga and volunteering at my local park, which involves gardening, fundraising, and putting on activity days for the public. I spent many years working in education prior to becoming a counsellor so often draw on that experience. Some days I feel strong and whole, others I feel scattered and fragile. I’m human, just like you. But I have learnt how to really listen and help others commit to living a fuller, more rewarding life.


BOOKING INFORMATION AND RATES

My fee is £55 for a 50-minute session. I offer sessions in person, by video call, and by phone.

I offer a free 15-minute introductory call to give you a chance to ask questions and see if we are a good fit for working together.

I offer counselling during the day Monday-Thursday. I also offer Tuesday and Wednesday evening appointments. My preferred way of working is weekly, but I do offer bi-weekly slots also.
