I help anyone who is not okay with where they are at in their lives; this could be an issue which has destroyed what it is to live day to day, or be something that just doesn’t feel quite right and needs addressing. I think we have all had times where we have thought, ‘Is this going to be my whole life?’, and that can be a really worrying and scary place to be. I offer a safe place you can come to and just be, if that is what you need, or you can get everything off your chest and we can work with whatever you want to. I feel like we all know what we need – even if that knowledge is really deep down and is scary to acknowledge – and counselling can act as a way to open doors and take a look around to see if there is another way of living your life. I am aware that coming for counselling can be daunting and I aim to offer a service which you actually look forward to coming to, in which we can work on your issues. It can be hard to picture what your life might look like after counselling, but I hope to facilitate some movement from a place of discomfort, to one of contentment.
I am a fully qualified registered practitioner. My training at Leeds Beckett University is accredited by the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy). I am a registered member of the BACP and abide by their code of ethics. The model I am trained in is the Relational Approach. Working in this way encourages the therapy to revolve around the client and what they need in the moment, which often results in my spontaneously borrowing tools from other approaches when it might be useful, such as Transactional Analysis.
I am situated on a residential street in Calverley which is easily accessible from both Leeds and Bradford, making it even more convenient for you to access counselling and psychotherapy.
My experience includes working as a counsellor at Bradford Bereavement Support and for ‘Talking Spaces’ and ‘Just B’, which are services run by St Michael’s Hospice, in Harrogate. I also volunteered for Leeds Survivor Led Crisis Service (LSLCS) with their ‘Connect’ service, where I was able to offer over the phone and online support for people in crisis in Leeds. I also support pupils in a part time role in SEN schools.
