Prior to becoming a counsellor I have gained a wide range of experience, working with children, young people and adults of all ages and backgrounds within the Health Authority, Local Authority and 10 years with the voluntary sector.
I am a member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and work within their guidelines, codes of practice and ethics and I am presently working towards accreditation.
I am committed to continuous personal and professional development. Since qualifying as a counsellor I have continued my studies and have gained post-qualifying training in Working with Survivors of Rape and Trauma, Relationship Transactional Analysis and Post Traumatic Stress.
As a counsellor I have counselled in a primary school and also at a community college counselling students with a diverse range of issues. In addition to my private practice I have counselled clients on behalf of Cruse Bereavement Care (Charity).
As a counsellor I strive to provide a non-judgmental, understanding and honest relationship in a safe environment. I use an integrative counselling approach and draw from different models to meet the needs of the client.
I offer daytime and evening appointments in comfortable private rooms within easy access of both Leeds and Wakefield. In addition home visits are also available as well as Skype and Email sessions.Schedule an appointment
