“Out of your vulnerabilities will come your strength”
Perhaps you're down or anxious - maybe you're unsure about the future of a relationship, or just feel that you aren't living the life you were meant to lead. Whatever your needs may be, I am here to offer support. Therapy is a process of growth and self-discovery, I have the tools and professional experience to help you get back on track and online therapy lets you access all the same coping mechanisms as you would an in person session.
There are lots of advantages to logging in online - here are some advantages to online therapy :
Taking the leap and starting therapy may be a little daunting so you may feel more comfortable doing it from home.
Time constraints mean that online therapy prevents the need for long journeys and waiting rooms.
Online therapy fits around your schedule, so you can chat to me wherever and whenever suits you.
You may have physical barriers to accessing face to face therapy such as living in rural areas, facing a long drive or a physical disability.
Privacy might be an issue in the place you live so accessing therapy from home is actually more private.
Comfort - just being safe and sound at home can help you feel more confident in opening up.
Online therapy sweeps these obstacles aside.
It is a good way to start your therapeutic journey and the prospect of face to face therapy can always be discussed if online is not proving suitable.
If you are interested in therapy, we can have a 30 minute conversation, free of charge, to see if we would like to work together. If we do; then sessions will be 1 hour. The work can be focused and short term or it can go on for longer - depending on your requirements and budget. Regular reviews can take place to ensure we are still heading in the direction you want.
This is all about you.

Taking therapy outdoors brings depth and creativity to your therapy experience. The effect of nature and the abundance of phenomenal prompts and metaphors in an outdoor space can provide you with an insight and understanding which is difficult to find online or in a therapy room. Being in nature can energise and focus us and help us appreciate the greater picture. It can help us explore our feelings and relationships anew and draw connections between our physical and mental
If working outdoors is something you are interested in I recommend initial sessions online so that I can fully understand your needs before we venture outside.
My practice is based in Hebden Bridge where there are a wealth of beautiful locations to access.
Please contact me if this is something you wish to consider.
No artistic skills required; the goal of art therapy is to utilize the creative process to help you explore self-expression and, in doing so, find new ways to gain personal insight and develop new coping skills.
Art making or art image appreciation helps you safely explore emotions and give substance to those feelings that are sometimes too difficult to put into words. Using visual metaphors and images helps you to develop self-awareness, cope with stress and improve your self worth.
Creativity can be as simple as drawing stick men or doodles but I can guide you in using other creative techniques such as :
Doodling and scribbling
Working with clay
Using creativity helps you notice any themes and feelings that come up for you. Then we can talk about these together.
It works well online as well as in person so location is not an issue. Materials and access to these can be discussed as part of the therapy.
If you are interested in Art Therapy please contact me and we can discuss your specific needs in more detail.
