What I offer

Thanks for your interest in having counselling with me. Here are the different types of counselling that I offer to help you decide what would be the best fit for you.

 

Face-to-Face counselling

 

For face-to-face sessions we meet in-person at a therapy centre that is in a quiet part of Leeds City Centre and in near reach of parking and public transport. Meeting face-to-face might be convenient for you if you work or live in the city centre or if you have nowhere private at home to speak by video or on the phone.

To keep us as safe as possible and reduce the risk of the spread of Covid-19, there are some additional measures for us to follow temporarily. You can find them here.

Telephone counselling

Telephone counselling is therapy at a distance like online video counselling but without the visual aspects. Speaking by telephone may appeal to you if you are not able to find a suitable place to talk on a computer, or the simplicity of talking by phone appeals to you.

Although we will not be able to see each other, some non-verbal communication can be carried in our tone of voice or the pace of speech. However, not being able to see each other may mean that we need more verbal communication to reduce misunderstandings.

 

I would start a session by calling you at an agreed time.

You can find more information about what we would do to keep our sessions private, safe and uninterrupted here.

Common issues:

 

Anxiety

Stress

Depression

 

Low self-esteem/confidence

 

Feeling empty or dissatisfied with life

 

Bereavement/loss

 

Relationship issues

Life choices and changes

Impact of childhood or past events

 
 

Online counselling

 

Online counselling involves us having sessions on a video conferencing platform from the comfort of your own home. I use a video conferencing platform called Zoom. We can see each other as in face-to-face counselling, but you have the convenience of being online. However, the nature of webcams means that we will not see each other as fully as if we were in the same room together.

If you want to have sessions online but you do not want the webcams on, we can agree to do that and have sessions that are very similar to telephone counselling. There is also the option to adjust the settings on Zoom on computers, so that you cannot see yourself during our sessions.

If we agree to have sessions using Zoom, I will let you know how to join them at the agreed time.

 My way of working

I offer a welcoming, non-judgemental and collaborative relationship where you can explore your difficulties and gain insight into them. Increasing your awareness, while also feeling understood and supported, can empower you, foster change and lead to you living a more fulfilling life.

Every person is unique, and our relationship will follow its own distinctive path. However, my main influences are person-centred, existential and psychodynamic therapy. I also consider ideas from other types of therapy such as transactional analysis and cognitive behavioural therapy.

If it sounds like I might be a good fit for you, please contact me to discuss your needs and how we can go forward.
