I work in Honley, Huddersfield and Leeds. So you want to let go of the past and move on, get some clarity, gain independence and freedom, find contentment and meaning. You’re struggling with questions like; Who am I? What’s the point? Why am I so unhappy? How do I change? I can help you find out who you are, where you’re going, find purpose, learn to live again, assert yourself in difficult relationships. Face and deal with that difficult stuff you’ve been avoiding that won’t let go of you. I've helped many people get over depression and anxiety, bereavement and problems at work.

I believe your therapy should be as unique as you and focus on providing informed support for LGBTQIA + clients, adult children (ACA/ACOA) and anyone who feels they struggle to 'fit in'.
Welcome! Thanks for visiting my profile. Pull up a seat, get comfortable, and lets really talk about what matters to you. There could be a million reasons why you're here....maybe you’ve been trying to hold it all together and feel tired or overwhelmed? Do you sometimes wish there was a manual for navigating relationships or conflict? Perhaps you want to feel better about yourself but don’t know where to start. When your brain is constantly chattering and the to-do list is never-ending, it can feel impossible to find space to hear yourself and consider what's really important.

​Being apart of the LGBTQ community, it is my passion to support people with gender identity, coming to terms with sexuality, judgment from others and coming to terms with a diagnosis of HIV.
We can all have times in our lives when we find things tough, we can feel overwhelmed and struggle to cope or we may feel dissatisfied with our lives. This is how counselling can help. ​ I offer a safe space where you can talk openly and privately about your problems, feelings and behaviours. We can build a therapeutic relationship based on trust and respect. It is a non judgmental space for you to speak about issues you face, that you may not feel comfortable to discuss with friends or family.

I have experience working with adult carers, young people with learning difficulties, and physical disabilities and young people from the LGBTQ + community.
Art therapy enabled me to process my own past traumas, it has given me the empathy and determination to help others to see more clearly what is going on for them in the present, often through gaining a better understanding of their past. I work mostly with adolescents (aged 12-25) and adults. Helping them to process issues such as anxiety, bullying, stress, identity, grief and bereavement.

Most clients contact us with surface negative symptoms or challenges. Every client is totally unique, therefore our truly one-off, made-to-measure approach is needed and always provided. Most clients help us to slowly identify the real current trigger(s), creating the negative presenting symptoms or challenges. Finally, our last step in helping you gain a positive, confident and happier future, is to discover your deepest root causes, which created the very first trigger(s). To put it simply, our driving force from day one is to help you quickly ensure you gain much improved: thinking, feeling and behaviour.

In this safe place people can begin to put their thoughts and feelings into words, opening up new perspectives on experiences, allowing people to move forward towards positive change. Our work together will help you to become clearer about what matters most to you, uncover a truer sense of who you are and what gives you real meaning and satisfaction in your life.

Hey There, Trauma can present as symptoms connected to nervous system disregulation, such as anxiety, depression, low mood, negative thinking, destructive behaviour, difficulty in experiencing emotion, lack of drive and enthusiasm, isolation, a lack of trust in others and a fear of connection or poor relationships, dissociative tendencies and hyper sensitivities. I work with cutting edge methods including Brainspotting and the SSP (safe sound protocol) (polyvagal theory) that are grounded in the most recent developments in neuro science and how we understand the impact of our early environment on our here and now adult experiences.

The hardest thing is to take that first step and figure out what’s happening in your life, to trust someone with what you’re going to tell them, your most private thoughts or feelings or what’s happened to you. Yet, you deserve to live a life that leaves you excited to wake up every morning, free of emotional pain and distress. Your story is not trivial, and I’m ready to listen and help you to find the answers you need and support you with the appropriate coping mechanisms.

Do you feel different than other people, like nobody seems to understand you? Do you often feel like an outsider? Perhaps you have trouble standing up for yourself or speaking your truth. Do you tend to cater to other people's needs and don’t get what you need? Do people sometimes tell you that you're a loving and giving person, but you feel flawed and unlovable? Do you feel uncomfortable in social situations, fearing that people will reject you if you stand out? Do you feel depressed? Do you often feel anxious? Perhaps you often don’t know what you need or want. Are you very hard on yourself and have lots of self-critical thoughts?

Life happens! It throws challenges in our path, knocking us off course or pulls us backwards. Do you feel stressed, anxious, stuck, low or lost? Are you seeking freedom from unwanted feelings, imposed conditioning, limiting beliefs or a past that seems to hold you back? Perhaps you struggle to get out of your own way, lack drive, motivation, clarity, confidence, self belief and long to show yourself the compassion and kindness you give to others? Do you feel detached from who you really are and want to connect with others as your best self? Do you want to find peace, contentment, joy and start living your life to the full?

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, psychologist, or counsellor, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counsellor in Holmfirth?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Psychologists in Holmfirth specialise in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others. Finding a psychologist or counsellor who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

Can I afford counselling?
Yes. Most counsellors offer reasonable rates or will work on a sliding scale basis. Many accept health insurance. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the counsellor.
