Hello. I am a qualified counsellor and a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy. I practice an open, pluralistic form of counselling that can be adapted to the unique needs of each client, as no two people are alike. I will work collaboratively with you to assess your preferences, needs and expectations, in order to create an effective therapeutic approach for your problems. Counselling may be long or short-term. Usually, short-term, time-limited counselling will be more structured and goal-oriented.

Often our anxieties and difficulties can weigh us down and we are unable to find a way forward. Our thoughts and feelings can be confusing and talking to friends and relatives about our concerns may be too difficult. I provide a confidential, safe, respectful and non-judgemental space in which you can explore your difficulties, gain insight and discover a way forward. I provide a counselling relationship where you are heard, understood and accepted. This is extremely powerful because it allows you to open up and express all of your thoughts and feelings and gain a new awareness which leads to the potential for positive change.

Not taking phone enquiries until after Monday 19th September. Talking in confidence to the right experienced professional for you, usually brings a sense of relief. I am interested in the meaning your situation holds for you, whether distressed by depression or low mood, anxiety or frequent worry, bereavement and grief, relationship difficulties - and more reasons that bring people to therapeutic counselling. Clients often ask questions about their state. I respect any choices you make will be yours. Exploring together in conversation focused on what you decide creates trust and gives you some clarity.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
Some of the most common types of mental health providers in Leeds are psychologists, licensed counsellors, therapists, and psychotherapists, all of whom diagnose mental health conditions and provide individualised treatment.

Services offered, education, and credentials vary by type of mental health professional. Each professional in Leeds then may specialise in certain areas, such as depression, marriage counselling, or anxiety. Although many mental health providers are not licensed to prescribe medication, they may coordinate with a provider who can.

Both in-person and online therapy sessions are available from most psychologists.
How to find a specialist?
You can refine your search using the filters on this page. There are several categories you can filter by to find mental health professionals with the experience you are looking for. You may want to filter for CBT Psychologists in Leeds, or Child Psychologists in Leeds.

Many find it useful to use filters to view only psychologists that have experience working with certain issues, like Leeds psychologists specialising in EMDR.


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 Leeds 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.
