I provide my bank details prior to the start of counselling, and ask that payment is made by bank transfer before each session.

What about Covid-19? Is it safe to meet?

The counselling rooms I work from have been risk assessed and there is enough space to practice safe social distancing.

The government has confirmed that services providing support to mental health can remain open.
Costs and FAQ. QandAsignpost

How do I know if counselling is right for me?

If you are uncertain about taking the first step, I am happy to offer a free, informal and confidential chat on the phone.

I will listen to what you would like to get from counselling and if I feel I am unable to help you I can refer to you another counsellor or service that might be better suited to meet your needs.

Where do you work?

Cleckheaton is 5 miles south from central Bradford, and surrounded by Gomeral, Birstall, Oakenshaw and Birkenshaw.

Morley is 10km south-west of Leeds city centre, and surrounded by Gildersome, Drighlington and Churwell.

Drighlington is 7km south-east of the city of Bradford, just next to Morley and Birkenshaw.

Online via video conferencing - I use Zoom.

Who can access my service?

Referrals can be made by individuals; GP’s; employers and local services.

Do you work with trainee counsellors and student counsellors?

Yes, and I offer fee concessions for trainee and student counsellors - please get in touch for a chat.

I understand from first hand experience the demands on a student counsellor.

How do I know sessions are confidential?

I am bound ethically to provide a confidential service. I will not discuss what you talk about in our sessions with anyone else.

As part of my ethical commitment to my profession I attend monthly supervision. My supervisor also works in a confidential setting. I will discuss client work at supervision however I will not give my supervisor any identifying client information.

If I believe someone is in danger of serious harm I may need to break confidentiality in accordance with the BACP ethical framework, this would be discussed with client and supervisor.

How many sessions will I need?

Every client is different and individual. Some will stay for a couple of sessions and some much longer term - for weeks or months. There is no right or wrong, or set format. We can discuss together what may help you, and regularly review your progress.

When are you available?

I work day times and evenings, and with mutual agreement can offer some weekends. I am usually able to offer a convenient time within a week of an enquiry, please ask.

I have other questions - please can you help?

Yes, please feel free to contact me for an informal chat.
