About

I don’t know what's brought you here at this stage, but rest assured I will do all I can to help you! Do you feel alone in your struggle, weighed down by sadness or anxiety? Are you struggling to manage your emotions, or looking for more of something? I can offer you a safe and accepting space, as an experienced therapist, who truly cares and listens to what's important to you! My clients tell me I work from the heart, with a healthy balance of professionalism and being human. I pride myself on being welcoming, friendly and genuine, as both a counsellor and as a person. I am person-centred in my approach to counselling and to life!
I've helped adults and young people in West Yorkshire through the process of healing for over 7 years. I believe everyone is capable of fulfilling their potential and I aim to provide you with the necessary conditions to do so! I’d look to empower you to develop the skills and confidence needed to ignite positive change. There’s even room for humour!
We would process your world together and at YOUR pace, but I think it's important you're given the opportunity to decide if I’m the counsellor for you first! I like to offer my clients a free 20-minute chat over the phone, online or in person, to help you make that decision. Life absolutely flies by so please take that next step and get in touch today!
