Counselling in Leeds, Sheffield & Rotherham

You are the key person in therapy, so you are centre stage. I help you make changes to how you cope day to day and long-term.  Often people know they need some help, but they don't really know what kind of help.  You just know you are feeling difficult feelings, e.g. angry, sad, guilty, or similar feelings that you want to be freed from. 

I work with teenagers, couples, men, women, any age in Leeds (LS8) and Meadowhall, Rotherham / Sheffield (S9).

I work collaboratively with you, incorporating warmth, empathy and respect, to select ways to solve things; ways that are relevant for you to apply, and that bring you success.  It is fundamental to how I work, that you achieve what you want from working with me, at your budget.

First Session: Your first session is to meet and set SMART goals for change.  Our first meeting takes place without any further commitment on your part, so you can be sure that you get what you are looking for from the very start of therapy.  Once you make the decision to proceed with counselling, we will meet regularly and work at your pace.  We will work out the causes of the challenges you are facing. 
Since 1996, I have helped many people overcome difficulties including stress, anxiety, anger management, depression, bereavement, self esteem difficulties, in short all kinds of mental health issues.  I have experience of working with complex difficulties, such as personality disorder, and experiences of abuse (e.g. child abuse, domestic violence) to give you a few examples.

I hope you feel having read this that you have enough information here about me and how we will work together, that you want to contact me.
