I am an experienced Counsellor working with Couples and Individuals in Wakefield and from around the region.
I offer office based sessions from my base in Horbury, Wakefield , or via Zoom or phone.
Wakefield is ideally placed, close to the M1 Junction 40 and M62 interchange at Junction 29/42, for easy access from Leeds, Barnsley, Dewsbury, Huddersfield and further afield.
I have twenty years experience as a counsellor and therapeutic practitioner, and ten years and over 5000 hours experience as a specialist, Relate trained Couples Counsellor The quality of relationship I build with clients is of great value to me, to be invited into your private world is a great privilege.
I know from my life experience what it's like to experience stress and setbacks in life and how much counselling can help to deal with the emotional pain and move forward feeling restored and safer in the world. Some extra insight into how we create our life, some sense of sorting things out, some empowerment to make positive changes for ourselves, is useful for many people at different stages in their life.
My therapy is tailored to you and your needs, every person has different challenges. Sessions can be 'face to face' in my office, online via video link, or by telephone.
> counselling for individuals and couples - without a restrictive contract on attendance, we agree how it will work. I usually see clients weekly, this may not be possible for everyone, some clients want fortnightly appointments, especially if they are travelling a long way.
> if you are in a couple and your partner does not want to attend initially then its ok to come alone, your partner maybe will join when they see the benefits.
> one off support sessions
> special offer of 6 sessions for the cost of 5 for those who can commit to a course of sessions
I aim to provide an initial session of counselling within a week, or less if you are flexible on times, and ongoing sessions within another week or so for daytime appointments, evening sessions may be a couple of weeks. You are in charge of when you attend, it doesn't have to be the same time each week, or even every week. You can also take a mix of office and video appointments to suit you.
After your initial session you may want to take some time to consider your next step, it is not necessary to make another booking straight away, you may need time to think about taking the next step to make the changes you want to make.
I offer counselling services by webcam, phone*, face-to-face, or a mixture of these to suit your needs. My new office base in Horbury, Wakefield is easily accessible from the M1/M62 corridor, counselling clients travel from around the region including Wakefield, Barnsley, Huddersfield, Dewsbury, Leeds and Pontefract.

How to book
It's best to call me with your diary at hand. I can book sessions via email or text, sometimes clients are disappointed that an array of appointments offered have all been booked up by the time they can reply. If you are booking for a couple please consult your partner first.
Payment is needed to secure the booking within 24 hours.
Its a fact that many, many, people book a session without their partner knowing, in the hope of persuading them to attend, often unsuccessfully, Then my diary is blocked and I have no income.
Once paid, you can have a refund with a full 48 hours notice before the session, this gives me time to rearrange my diary.
I will send you a comprehensive email with everything you need to know to attend the session.
