Issues With Which I Work

Whilst I prefer to consider that I work with people and their individual or joint concerns rather than treating particular conditions , I have experience in supporting people to work through their experience of difficulties relating to the following:
  • Stress
  • Depression
  • Loss
  • Bereavement
  • Grief
  • Lack of Confidence
  • Low Self-Esteem
  • Self Harm
  • Relationship Difficulties
  • Lack of Meaning
  • Trauma
  • Domestic Abuse
  • Sexual Abuse
  • Physical Abuse
  • Emotional Abuse
  • Childhood Issues
  • Sexuality
  • Sexual Issues
  • Identity
  • Bullying
  • Career Counselling
  • Work-related Issues
  • Fertility Problems
  • Existential Issues
  • Spiritual Issues
  • Post- traumatic Stress
  • And more.........
However, in a very real sense, when working as a counsellor in Leeds and Morley,  I don't "see"  "problems" or "issues", but rather see individuals or couples in all their individuality. Counselling requires considerable commitment from both clients and therapists. It is often hard work (but can also be fun), and, as is often the case in life, the best outcomes are likely to stem from the greatest efforts. The range of concerns which people want to address is as varied as the people themselves. Sometimes there is no specific issue other than general unhappiness which brings someone to counselling, whilst in other cases people want to address something specific. Occasionally people seek support with one difficulty only to discover that the real problem lies elsewhere.

I will listen to you without judgement, regardless of the matter which you want to address and I will offer my commitment to you in making sense of your experience and working towards insight, healing and change.

Please do not hesitate to contact me to discuss whether I might be able to help if your concern is not identified above.
