I can help with a broad spectrum of mental health conditions, particularly issues related to depression, anxiety, stress, sexuality and identity, interpersonal and family issues, relationship problems, body image / confidence concerns, and substance use issues.
I am a person-centred counsellor who primarily works with members of the LGBTQ+ community. While mental health issues can be a huge barrier for anyone, for LGBTQ+ people these issues can be magnified. Often LGBTQ+ folks struggle to feel understood, to feel heard, and can suffer social isolation as a result. Coming out, again and again, to ourselves, our friends, our partners all while finding one’s true sense of self, can be a lifelong mission. My outlook on counselling is based on compassion and honesty, and I work to foster an environment where collaboration and discourse are encouraged, working with you to get the best outcomes.

People who embark on a psychoanalytically informed therapy attend for a variety of reasons. Depression, anxiety, relationship difficulties, stress, shame or low self esteem, what is important is that the problems have been around for some time and despite our best efforts do not improve by trying to address them on our own. This leaves us feeling stuck and alone, with increasing symptoms and frustrations. The aim of this type of therapy is to not only to help with the conscious symptoms, but to help develop understanding and awareness of what lies beneath the symptoms, enriching our lives and relationships, enabling change.

Life can be tough at times. Whether it's issues at work, with family and relationships, illness, loss, abuse, sexuality, phobias, anxiety, addiction or just general confidence, we all need help from time to time. For years I thought that the best way to deal with the feelings brought about by life's challenges was to 'bottle them up' and not talk about them, hoping they would go away. The reality was that this led to issues with anxiety, low mood and in extreme cases, panic attacks. Sound familiar? Just as it did for me, counselling could help you unlock the root cause of your issues and deal with them once and for all.

We experience so many significant events such as bereavement and loss, relationship difficulties, depression and anxiety. Sometimes we question who we are, how we are feeling or feel a need to move on from events in our past. These are some of the reasons for seeking therapy.

As a client seeking a therapist is a daunting and stressful experience. However, I can relate to this in more ways than one. The most important factor that a client needs to have is the desire to change, even if in some cases they are not certain about what actually needs to change. I believe that once this understanding has been achieved we can work together on stress, anxiety, depression, low mood, self-confidence or lack of self compassion.

When it’s not always possible to chat to a friend or loved one about personal issues counselling can be really helpful. Using a warm and down to earth style my sessions will use techniques to help discover the underlying symptoms, using a non direct approach. This will allow us to explore any issues you have, develop ways to overcome them, and move forward positively at a pace that feels right for you. As a fully qualified counsellor I offer help if you suffer emotional from problems with low self esteem, relationships, work related stress, abuse, child related issues, abandonment, drug abuse and addiction, amongst many others.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?

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.

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.

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.
