How I work
I am a qualified, BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) registered Counsellor and Psychotherapist based in Leeds, West Yorkshire. I am a humanistic, integrative practitioner. This means my relationship with you is my priority in our work. I use different techniques to focus on you and your individual needs. Enabling you to reach your therapeutic goals.
I work to the BACP ethics and guidelines and offer you a safe, confidential and non judgemental space. The space and time is yours to explore and reflect upon whatever you chose.
I have a PG Diploma in Counselling and Psychotherapy from Leeds Beckett University.
I have experience of counselling men and women aged 17 to 80 years with a wide range of issues. I have counselling experience from work at Leeds Mind and Dayspring Counselling Centre in Leeds. I have experience of both long and short term work.
Prior to a career in Counselling I have an advice background having spent 12 years providing debt advice for a Charity based in Leeds.
I engage in regular Supervision to work with you to the best of my ability and I am committed to my ongoing development and learning, to ensure I am continually reviewing and developing my work as a Practitioner.
