About Me

Hi, I’m Steve,


I’m a warm, approachable, empathic counsellor. I bring a still and calming, energy that can feel reassuring to be around. 

I offer a space where you can feel respected, valued, and heard without judgement. Where you can feel safe, and where you can explore what’s going on for you at your own pace.

I’m registered with the British Association for Counselling and psychotherapy (BACP) (membership no:403056).

I offer 50 minute weekly person-centred therapy/ person centred counselling sessions. I work face to face in central Leeds, and from LS11 or with clients across the UK over Zoom video/ phone sessions.. I also offer walk and talk therapy.

If you would like to find out more, why not arrange a free 20 minute chat via telephone/ video call over zoom. We can use this time to see if we would be a good fit together, and to let you get a feel of what I’m like. There’s no pressure at all to go forward after this step.

It can often be a very brave and courageous step to seek out counselling/ therapy. Whatever your reason(s) for seeking help,  I’m glad you’re here!

How can I help?

1. You can open up. Often we find when we speak to friends or family about our problems - they have their own set ideas and agendas. That might be offering advice so telling us what to do, and we might feel judged . So what we might do is bottle up those feelings, which can devastatingly impact our mental health, and can even harm our physical health as well. 

If we work together, you should feel that you’re not being judged, and are able to talk about whatever you feel you need to, in a safe and supportive space.

I will give you the space to open up, and to be yourself without judgement.

2. You’re putting yourself first. We can find in our busy lives that we don’t have time for ourselves. Counselling offers a space just for you. Working together- We are both are setting aside other distractions. The 50 minutes is your time to use as you find useful.

Many of my clients appreciate just having that time to come and ‘reset’.

I will give you my undivided attention, and an opportunity to put yourself first.

3. You can be truly heard and understood. As a qualified  counsellor I have undergone years of training to develop my skills, and ensure we are working safely.

I am committed and determined to understand exactly where you’re coming from and to help you process your thoughts and feelings. 

When we are truly heard and understood, this can be  a beautiful and a very profound thing.

It can be deeply moving to feel we have finally been truly heard and understood, in some cases for what feels like the first time in our lives.

I offer you a time to be truly heard, respected and understood. 

4. You are welcome to be yourself.

No need to be perfect!

I am able to hold a safe space in a supportive and encouraging way and help you to feel this is your time.

I invite you to be yourself and help you to feel empowered to  work at your own pace.

5. You are not going to be gossiped, about behind your back- you’re protected by confidentiality! Except  under very specific circumstances what you say to myself as your counsellor remains confidential.

If you decide you would like to work together, I will help you to understand very clearly when confidentiality may be broken- and be assured that your privacy and anonymity is paramount 

I offer you a space where you can really talk about what you feel is important, and do that in a safe and confidential way.

Is it your time to be heard today?

Why not get in touch for a free 20 minute phone call/ video call to see if we would be a good fit and if you would like to work together?

If you have any questions- feel free to get in touch.

Alternatively, head to my website Heard Today Counselling - for more information.

What can I help with?

There may be many reasons why you might be contemplating counselling.

I have helped clients experiencing a range of issues, like the things you are working through.

Perhaps you’re struggling with a diagnosis or symptoms of depression. Your anxiety or social anxiety may have been through the roof since COVID? You might be struggling with family issues, or find the stress of life is getting too much. You might be struggling to work through a bereavement, or are suffering from low self-esteem or low self-confidence. 

You may feel out of sorts or that you can’t be yourself. You may feel numb or are experiencing very intense feelings such as guilt, grief from a loss, or shame. You may feel alone, overwhelmed or unheard.

It feels like we all have many pressures, and you might feel close to burnout. You may feel that you need some help, and don't know where to turn?

If you do not see what you're struggling with listed under things I can help with, please get in touch. My training enables me to help a broad range of clients with many diverse issues.

Whatever has brought you here, this is a step on your personal journey, and I hope it’s a positive step towards being heard and understood, and feeling some improvement in your life.

Thanks for taking the time to view my profile, and all the best on your journey,
