Welcome to my counselling service
Are you feeling anxious, stressed, low on confidence, numb or dissatisfied with life? Are you struggling in a relationship or after a bereavement? Do you feel that the same situation keeps happening over and over?
I offer a welcoming and safe space where you can explore your difficulties and talk about your thoughts, feelings and experiences without judgement.
Through our relationship you can develop a greater understanding of your difficulties, feel more in tune with yourself, gain new perspectives and work out different ways to live a more fulfilling life.
The most important part of counselling and psychotherapy is our relationship, so I blend my knowledge of different types of therapy, training and experience to meet your needs.
My main influences are person-centred, existential and psychodynamic therapy but I also draw on ideas from other forms of therapy such as transactional analysis and cognitive behavioural therapy.
I provide in-person, online and phone sessions to individuals aged 18 and over who live in the UK.
In-person sessions take place in Leeds City Centre.
I offer an introductory session for £30.
After that, 50-minute sessions cost £45.
Block bookings of six sessions cost a discounted price of £240.
I work with clients with a range of issues including:
Feeling numb, empty or dissatisfied with life
Adverse childhood experiences and abuse
A little about me
Before I was a therapist I taught English as a foreign language in Italy and worked in administrative roles in health and education.
In my spare time I enjoy films, baking, and going on walks in the countryside.
In 2019 I went to Sierra Leone to teach Maths and English, and help local charities with their projects.
Training and experience
I have a Postgraduate Diploma in Counselling & Psychotherapy from Leeds Beckett University and CPCAB certificates in Counselling Skills and Counselling Studies from Coventry University College.
I have also completed Online and Telephone Counselling training.
I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and I work in line with their ethical framework

I also volunteered at Bradford Counselling Services for three years, working with clients with a variety of issues.
