You are very warmly welcome. My name is Charlotte and I am an HCPC registered Counselling Psychologist and BACP registered Psychotherapist. I offer weekly individual psychotherapy to adults on a one-to-one basis, in-person in North Leeds or online for clients based across the UK. People come to see me for many different reasons that may be causing them distress. These may include, for example, relationship or health difficulties, anxiety, depression, trauma, abuse, grief or loss. My aim is to provide a therapeutic relationship where we can collaboratively explore your difficulties and formulate a way forward together. I am an experienced scientific and evidence-based practitioner, who has worked in many therapeutic settings including the NHS, mental health charities, the prison service, and in private practice. Alongside my therapeutic practice I also work as a psychology lecturer, and as a clinical and research supervisor at York St John University. I have a passion for inclusive practice and social justice, and I have published research papers in my specialist areas of interest including how we experience trauma in the body, and compassionate approaches to psychotherapy practice and research.
You may be new to therapy or have had previous experiences of it. When you first get in touch with me I will arrange a free 15 minute consultation with you via telephone to see if I am the right therapist for you, and to listen to your needs. If we choose to move forward together, you will come in for an initial assessment session for an hour and a half, followed by weekly therapy sessions of 50 minutes. As an integrative practitioner I will tailor my therapeutic approach to meet your needs, and I will offer you a genuine, authentic and empathic therapeutic relationship based on unconditional positive regard. I aim to help you feel in control and empowered in your sessions and to value what makes you uniquely you. I value difference and diversity, and will work with you to support any additional needs you may have. I also aspire to be a culturally informed practitioner, seeking to honour and better understand your cultural background, values, beliefs and heritage within the therapeutic relationship.
Initial 15 minute consultation: Free
Initial assessment: £150
Weekly 50 minute therapy session: £125
My fees are reviewed on a yearly basis.
Please do get in touch with any questions you may have or to book an initial consultation. I will be glad to speak to you and aim to get back to you within 48 hours where possible.
