Psychotherapist & counsellor
I am a psychotherapist and counsellor based in Calderdale, West Yorkshire and am a Registered Member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).
There is much truth in the cliché that therapy is a journey. Sometimes it's an exploration of who we are, whilst at others it's looking at who we are not or who we have had to be. It can involve humour, creativity in all its many forms, silence and wonder, as much as it invokes the pains we experience in our lives. While the process may focus outside the therapy room on problems in the 'real world', therapy can also involve the real and developing relationship you and I naturally create over the weeks or months we meet.
I offer a quiet, secure and professional space for you to find out how you arrived at where you are and to find ways to live more autonomously. You may find yourself living within destructive patterns, feeling overwhelmed, anxious or plain stuck - whatever has brought you to read these words, making the decision to reach out for assistance can feel an enormous step to take when you're feeling vulnerable and I hope this site gives a flavour of who I am and my style of work.
