Online Therapy

What is Online therapy?

Online therapy is live professional mental health counselling via the internet using Teams.

Is Online therapy right for me?

Online therapy provides accessibility to individuals who are disabled or housebound. Mobility can be a big issue when it comes to accessing mental health care. A therapist practicing out of their own home, for example, may not be set up to accommodate clients of all abilities.

Online therapy is usually more affordable due to reduced overheads and convenient. Since you will be attending therapy sessions online in the comfort of your own home, you can often schedule your therapy sessions for times that are the most convenient for you.

in-person therapy

In-Person Therapy

Traditional, in-person therapy usually takes place in a therapist’s office and has long been used as an effective treatment for many different mental and emotional health problems.

Talking to a professional can help you overcome obstacles in your life, gain awareness of the root cause of your problems, manage symptoms, and heal.

I offer two locations Colne and Leeds.


Sand Tray Therapy

Working in CAMHS I understand engaging therapeutically with children or young people can sometimes require creativity. I provide Sand Tray therapy for children and young people as an alternative to traditional talking therapies.

What is Sand Tray Therapy?

Sand tray therapy is a hands-on and expressive approach that uses miniature figurines and sometimes water to build scenes and stories within a sand-filled tray.

Who is Sand Tray therapy for?

Sand tray therapy is used for people who have experienced a traumatic event such as abuse or a shattering incident. Sand Tray therapy has been shown to help with ADHD, anxiety, depression, divorce, grief, and school related problems. Although this type of therapy is used most often with children, sand tray therapy also can be helpful for teens and adults.

How does Sand Tray Therapy work?

Sand tray therapy can help increase emotional expression while reducing the psychological distress that may come from discussing traumatic events or experiences.

counselling supervision

Counselling Supervision

I work in schools with teachers by providing group Counselling Supervision using Page and Wosket’s Cyclical model.

What is counselling supervision?

Counselling supervision provides a safe space for professionals to use the services of a therapist to reflect the way they work and explore individual or collective feelings.

What is the Cyclical Model of supervision?

This model pays attention to five areas that are closely linked with each other. These are:

  • Contract – terms agreed between the supervisor and the supervisee/therapist
  • Focus – what the work is going to be about and how each session is going to look
  • Space – reflective, exploratory and developmental work that takes place throughout the process of supervision
  • Bridge – the way the supervision session allows the supervisee to bring what has been worked on back to the sessions with his/her clients
  • Review – an opportunity to re-contract and talk about how the supervisory relationship is going, what is working well and what is lacking and needs re-formulating and work.
