When life challenges us, we can feel overwhelmed, confused, alone, dissatisfied, maybe a sense of just going through the motions. Unhealthy ways of being can develop.

I believe that we become the story we tell ourselves. Depending on the nature of our experiences and influential relationships, our narratives can develop to either constrain us or offer meaning and empowerment. Talking with a Counsellor can enable people to make sense of themselves and their difficult experiences in order to live in a more fulfilling way.

I offer an approachable professional counselling service to individuals aged 18+ in Huddersfield, providing a confidential, non-judgemental space for you to explore your difficulties.

See my experience


In the past 8 years I have worked as a Counsellor within a hospice, drug and alcohol recovery service, charity supporting those who have experienced sexual violence and at Further Education Colleges within West Yorkshire. I have a number of years’ experience working with people from a variety of backgrounds covering a wide age range.

I have most experience working with people who are impacted by:

  • Life limiting illness
  • Various types of Loss (e.g. relationships, roles, job, bereavement)
  • Developmental/childhood trauma
  • Relationship problems
  • Past/recent Abuse (emotional/psychological, physical and/ sexual)
  • Past/present bullying
  • Low self-esteem/confidence
  • Adjusting to life transitions
  • Excessive worrying
  • Stress
  • Social anxiety
  • Depression
  • Problematic anger
  • Identity conflict


My approach is Integrative, drawing mainly on Person Centred and Relational Counselling models. Other approaches that influence my way of working are Narrative Therapy, Cognitive Therapy, Gestalt and Emotion Focussed Therapy. I tailor my approach to each person and their issue.

How I Work

I aim to provide a relationship where-by:

  • You are heard, understood and valued as an individual
  • You are supported to work through your difficulties
  • You are able to work out what is best for you

In counselling with me you may:

  • Develop more self-awareness
  • Develop more understanding of your feelings, thoughts and actions
  • Understand how past relationships are influencing your present way of being
  • Identify and express difficult or unresolved feelings
  • Develop insight into the parts of you that hold you back
  • Explore and consider different choices and perspectives
  • Create new meaning


I offer short term or long term 1-1 counselling to individuals aged 18+. Please contact me via email or phone if you are interested. I offer a free 30 minute initial meeting so you can meet me and get an idea on how we might work together.
