Counselling, Supervision and Training
I am an accredited counsellor and supervisor with extensive experience working with individuals, couples and children and young people. I offer a private, confidential and ethical therapeutic space where you and your experiences will be respected, listened to and supported. If I feel I am not the right person to work with you, I will talk to you about this and assist you in finding the right place to meet your needs.
My practice is rooted in the person-centred approach which means that I believe that the quality of the relationship between myself and my client is the key factor in helping you make better sense of your feelings and experiences and find internal ways of living more closely the life that you wish to lead. My approach to therapy is relational and flexible and I may draw on a range of models and approaches from my training and experience which may help in understanding your emotional history, relationships, the issues you are experiencing and the ways in which they are impacting on your life.
I have experience of delivering Cognitive Behavioural and Experiential Therapy to clients with anxiety and depression and in working in short term focused ways with Employment Assistance Programmes. I also have extensive experience counselling in hospices and therefore have particular expertise in working with loss and grief in all its forms. Finally, I have additional training and interest in Mindfulness.
I am based in Holmfirth which is very close to Huddersfield and also has good road links with Calderdale, North Manchester and the M62 network. My fee is £45 for a session. I am happy to discuss concessions based on your individual circumstances. Please telephone me to ask any questions, talk to me and informally discuss your needs.
