How do I work? Face-to-Face and Online
Where am I based? Leeds
I specialise in supporting you to move away from negative thought processes, whether that be due to a specific situation or due to an ongoing struggle; it can be difficult to process and cope in the world. I promise to create a therapeutic space individual to you. The process will be continuously discussed and agreed upon.
I have vast experience working with young people/children with social, emotional and mental health needs; using a combination of behavioural and therapeutic techniques to support the development of coping strategies.
Previously to becoming a counsellor I worked within school settings and privately to support autistic young people. I also supported their families in better understanding and meeting the needs of their child.
Once retrained as a counsellor, the gap in neuro informed therapy became evident and so I continued building on my knowledge on how to be truly inclusive.
Ways of Working
My approach includes; Psycho education, person-centred therapy, adjusted CBT/ DBT, acceptance and commitment therapy, transactional analysis and aspects of psychodynamic therapy.
