I specialise in working with Neurodiverse people and have trained in a specialist play therapy called Autplay Therapy devised specifically for Autism and other neurodivergent children & Young People. I have been successful in offering pre screenings/assessments for Neurodevelopmental differences within school settings and privately.

Hello, my name is Eleanor and I am a qualified counsellor/ psychotherapist. I provide an empathic, warm, non-judgemental space, where together we can explore what is going on for you. I am an integrative counsellor, whereby I use a range of methods to suit the clients needs, including talking therapy and play therapy. I am particularly interested in exploring attachment styles with my clients as I believe our early attachments can significantly shape the people that we become. I also have a keen interest in working with neurodivergent children, young people and adults. I have completed training in this and I am continuing my development in it.
I am currently offering online and Walk & Talk sessions for adults and face-to-face sessions for children at Tong Hall, BD4 0RR ; they are both safe and confidential spaces.
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 80+ 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.
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.
