Counselling Therapy Psychotherapy Leeds & Ilkley


Life is often hard and can challenge us in many ways. You may be feeling anxious, lack confidence, be suffering loss or experiencing other significant change in your life. 

Exploring your thoughts, feeling and emotions in a supportive environment can provide clarity and help to begin the healing process. 

It is important that our sessions are client-led as each person is unique. I work with my clients to facilitate healing by ensuring they access their own inner resources.

As a result of my varied experience, I am able to draw upon a range of different counselling and coaching practices to support my clients.  

My areas of practice include, but are not limited to;


  • Anxiety 

  • Depression

  • Stress

  • Self esteem

  • Bereavement

  • Loss

  • Life coaching

  • Leadership coaching

  • Work related issues

  • Relationships

  • Identity problems

  • General counselling

Location, Fees and Booking

I meet with clients in welcoming, comfortable and confidential rooms in Ilkley


Taking that first step to talk with a qualified counsellor can sometimes feel daunting and so I offer an initial half-hour discussion free of charge so that you can meet with me and ask any questions that you might have. If you decide that you would like to continue with our sessions then you can either book a block of sessions or choose to continue on a week-by-week basis. 


During the current COVID-19 pandemic I am offering counselling sessions by telephone or Skype/Zoom.​

Fees are £70 per 50 minute session.

I am also offering discounted rates to key workers during the current situation. Please email or telephone for details.
