I mainly work with LGBTQ+ clients and those who have always felt different in some way. You might be looking for help because you are experiencing anxiety, relationship challenges, difficulties making decisions or setting boundaries. It might seem like you have too many overwhelming feelings, or rarely any feelings at all. Maybe you’ve always felt a bit different from other people, almost as if everyone else got the manual on how to be a functioning adult and you didn’t. At times you might even begin to suspect that there’s something fundamentally wrong with you.

Hello, my name is Sean. I am a person-centred therapist. Accredited by the National Counselling Society, I am also a member of BACP, I have experience in counselling adults and young people as well as 9 years’ experience supporting people with mental health difficulties. I know that life can bring challenges that can be understood better through sharing with a skilled listener. I also know that it is very difficult to reach out and ask to be heard. Baring this in mind, I offer a friendly, non-judgmental, and confidential space where you can explore your emotions and experiences.

Hi, I’m Charlotte. I am a Registered Psychologist and Accredited EMDR therapist. I have 20 years of experience working with people suffering with mental health difficulties. I am passionate about helping people struggling with distressing emotions which may lead to suicidal & self-injurious thinking and behaviour. I also have significant experience working with people who have experienced trauma (and may have a PTSD diagnosis) and may have been given a personality disorder diagnosis. In addition to using EMDR I am also trained in DBT and schema therapy so tend to use a combined approach tailored to the needs of the individual.

I am a trauma-informed, integrative therapist with NHS experience. Being trauma-informed means that I use a specific approach to therapy that recognizes and emphasizes understanding how the traumatic experience impacts a person’s mental well-being. This type of therapy is rooted in understanding the connection between the trauma experience and the person’s emotional and behavioural responses. Being integrative means that I can work at your pace with a wide variety of skills tailored to suit you. I am aware that therapy is not a “one size fits all” and I pride myself in working with you to reconnect you with your values in life

Like me, my client base has been gloriously eclectic. I have extensive experience of working with many types of loss. Grief is painful no matter whether it's as a result of a relationship breakup, loosing touch with parts of yourself. Slowly painfully loosing a loved one to Alzheimers/Dementia, being a carer for a child with an eating disorder. I regularly work with clients who have been in some way affected by a Brain Tumour. Interestingly Anger and Rage is something i have worked with regularly in the last 2 years. If you or your partner are neurodivergent I can help you find collaborative ways of communicating together.

Perhaps you are going through something that feels too overwhelming to tackle alone. People seek counselling for many reasons; a life crisis, relationship issues, a bereavement, work-related stress, lacking confidence, difficulty moving on from painful childhood experiences, a lack of purpose and meaning. Whatever your reasons, talking about your difficulties with someone who truly listens is the first step towards making them manageable. A strong therapeutic relationship can bring relief, support when it is most needed and transformative change.

Or wanting to modify your behaviours or change destructive patterns. Therapy can support you as you explore your relationship with the world, helping you move from where you are now to where you want to be.

I'm Andy and as a qualified person-centred counsellor, I strongly believe we all have the ability to navigate life's challenges by drawing on our own experience and capabilities. My role is to enable clients to explore whatever they choose in order to gain a deeper understanding of how it's impacting them, enabling them to create positive change. I do this through actively listening and offering useful reflections of themes I may notice, including any changes over time. I ask clients questions that encourage them to think about their experiences in new ways and never judge or lead anyone into talking about something uncomfortable.

Being a Cognitive-Behavioural Therapist, my focus is to support people to develop insight into the thoughts, feelings and behaviours that underpin their issues. CBT can help with all kinds of psychological problems. Depression, Anxiety (Social, Health & Everyday), OCD, Stress, Sleep, Self-Harm and PTSD can all be treated competently by me through use of CBT. I am passionate about CBT as it is a goal focused, collaborative form of therapy and has research evidence that supports its' ability to transform people's lives. I am open to working with people from varying backgrounds and experiences.

Entering into counselling can feel like a big step, and understandably, you may be concerned about what the process involves. Simply put, counselling allows you to explore your thoughts and feelings in a safe, non-judgmental space, giving you the opportunity to see the issues that are bothering you more clearly and find ways to make the intolerable tolerable. If you have a history of trauma, feel overwhelmed or anxious, struggle with depression, your interpersonal relationships, or perhaps feel that your life is at a crossroads and you don't know where to turn next, counselling can help.

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?
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 West Yorkshire?
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 West Yorkshire 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.
