Qualified. Experienced. Compassionate.

I use a range of methods depending on the individual needs and I operate a confidential service. I have experience of working with adults and working with children in a school setting.

I have a special interest with working with Neurodiverse people and have trained in a specialist play therapy called Autplay Therapy devised specifically for Autism and other neurodivergent people. I have been successful in offering pre screenings/assessments for Neurodiverse conditions within school settings and have been successful in having many children placed on the CAMHS Neurodevelopmental pathway for full assessments. This is something that I can offer privately also. 


Accredited by MBACP and follow the ethical framework

I trained at Leeds Metropolitan University and completed in 2010 a Diploma HE Counselling and Therapeutic Skills (Relational Approach).

I also have vast experience in working with Looked after/Adopted children and their families and am DDP level 1 (Dyadic developmental psychotherapy) trained.

I am Autplay Therapy trained and have over 40+ additional hours of training in Autism and ADHD.

I initially from 2007 worked with adults, (at what was known then as Leeds Counselling Services and now known as Northpoint Wellbeing) up until 2013. From 2013 via Northpoint Wellbeing, I began working with children and parents within various Leeds Schools Clusters .

I am a qualified Supervisor, I hold a Level 7 PG Cert in Supervison in Counselling, Psychotherapy and Helping Professions.

What you can expect


Confidentiality is considered to be one of the foundations of the therapeutic relationship. Clients may share / disclose personal information with a therapist and they will feel more confident to do this if they are reassured that their personal information will be discussed and recorded in confidence. At the outset of therapy it is the responsibility of the therapist (myself) to explain to you and ensure you understand about confidentiality.


If you trust someone, you believe that they are honest and sincere and will not deliberately do anything to harm you.

A good counsellor is someone who can use compassion, empathy, respect and authenticity to form a genuine, trusting relationship with their clients. This is what I will endeavour to do whenever we are in contact.
