About me.​​​​

My approach to counselling and psychotherapy is an integrated one,
that is, I use a range of different models to create the best therapy
to suit the individual. This is certainly not  a one size fits all method
of working. I believe certain models of psychotherapy lend
themselves to specific problems and issues; choosing the correct
way of working will produce the best results. My counselling stems
from a Humanistic and Transpersonal platform which means I honour
every client I see as a valid and worthwhile human-being regardless
of the difficulties they may be facing. The counselling relationship is
paramount to successful therapy and much emphasis is placed on this
area of my work. Given the right support and a safe environment,
I believe that people can make the right decisions to move towards the goals that they wish for and to begin to resolve the areas of their lives which may have caused concern.
  I have worked for some time  at various charities counselling clients with moderate to severe difficulties. Although challenging, I enjoy this work immensely.  I hold a number of diplomas in Hypnotherapy, Counselling and Psychotherapy and have recently completed a masters degree in Transpersonal Psychology. I am a registered member of the BACP,  and a member of the General Hypnotherapy Register. As part of my obligations to the BACP, I regularly attend on-going training as part of my Continued Personal Development.
I charge £45 per session. Sessions last 55 mins.
Hypnotherapy sessions are £60 each.
I offer telephone counselling as well as Skype sessions.
I practice from  Citibase, 2 Burgage Square, Merchant Gate, Wakefield, WF1 2TS and The Therapy Rooms, 23 Cheapside, Wakefield WF1 2TF. There is ample parking nearby and is  very close to rail and bus routes.
