Compulsive behaviours can provide temporary relief. Still, sometimes they can have harmful consequences for the individual and those around them. Are you withdrawing from others, attempting to hide your addiction from the outside world? Or maybe you're already in recovery and just need some extra support along the way.
Possibly, there are concerns about you or your partner's use of drugs and alcohol, or substances are a way of blocking out painful emotions. Perhaps you're experiencing worry as the aftermath of impulsive spending or gambling.
As your therapist, I will listen to any concerns you may have about your addictions in a space that's confidential and supportive.
Like many people, I have had varied jobs and roles over the years, but they all had one thing in common: helping others. In 2010, I decided to go on a journey of self-discovery on a counselling course in the centre of Manchester, where my journey of person-centered therapy began.
After working overseas for some time, I moved to Leeds and graduated as a person-centered therapist. I've been fortunate to be a part of a fantastic organisation that provides generic counselling, in which I have experience and knowledge in a wide range of issues, as well as my own private work and ongoing training.
I also became a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP), where I work within professional standards and ethical guidelines.
