Heather Dale, Counselling, Psychotherapy and Clinical Supervision in Keighley and West Yorkshire

Welcome to my website.

If you are searching on this site, it is most likely because you are looking for help, because you have hit a troubled time. What I offer is a space and time to talk in a neutral and non-judging environment, with the aim of helping you gain new perspectives and make decisions where needed.

I work in an upstairs room in my home, which is a village between Bingley and Keighley, but accessible by train or bus from Leeds, Bradford Skipton, and places in between. There is no waiting room, but if you arrive early, there is a pub within a five minute walk that serves tea and coffee from 11am.

I also offer on-line counselling, though where possible, I prefer to meet face-to-face at least once, first.

About me

I am a counsellor and psychotherapist ( I use the words interchangeably) living and working between Bingley and Keighley, West Yorkshire, within easy access to places such as Keighley, Bingley, Bradford Leeds and Skipton.

Over a career in counselling/psychotherapy that spans over 30 years, working in or around Keighley, Bingley, Leeds and Bradford, I have worked with a large number of issues, including relationship difficulties, work-based issues, anxiety, bulimia, compulsive eating, gender issues, and couples/ relationship counselling amongst others.

I am accredited and registered by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) who are my professional body. Accreditation means that I have been recognised as having reached a certain level of training, qualification and experience as a counsellor and as a psychotherapist.

To read more about BACP's ethical framework, please click on the link to external resources and follow that link. To read my own contract, which gives information about issues such as confidentiality, please follow that link.

How I work

Sometimes talking in a neutral space is enough to help move on from stuck places in your life, but sometimes it is helpful to go deeper into early issues or just work out ways of dealing more effectively with patterns of behaviour. You will always be in charge of what we talk about in your session and I offer you the chance to talk in a confidential and non-judging environment.

My style of working has evolved over the years, but always with an emphasis on you leading the work we do together.

I also offer on-line work, though I prefer to meet face-to-face at least once, first.

As well as therapy, I also offer supervision, either face-to-face or on line. Face-to face work takes place in my home, which is between Bingley and Keighley. with public transport links to Leeds and Skipton. Therapy takes place in a quiet room used specifically for the purpose. Unfortunately, as the room is up a short flight of stairs, I cannot offer disabled access.

The links on the left give essential information about what I offer but do get in touch if you would like more information, or an informal chat.

My practice is within easy reach of areas such as Keighley, Silsden, Skipton, Saltaire, Shipley, Ilkley, Bradford and Leeds .
