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

Welcome to my website.

I am a Bingley counsellor and psychotherapist ( I use the words interchangeably)

If you are searching on this site, it is most likely because you are looking for help, either for yourself or someone else. What people tell me is helpful is talking in a neutral and non-judging environment, where you are helped to gain new perspectives and make decisions where needed.

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

I work in an upstairs room in my home, between Bingley and Keighley, but accessible by train or bus from Leeds and Bradford. Because the room is upstairs I cannot offer wheel chair access,

About me


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 a local ( I live and work halfway between Keighley and Bingley) counsellor and psychotherapist 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 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 will offer you the chance to talk in a confidential and non-judging environment.

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. 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 .

Thought for the month

There is currently a much greater awareness of what is meant by sexual abuse (I define it as unwanted sexual contact) which has made it easier for women, in particular, to discuss it. However there is still a stigma attached, perhaps especially for me, particularly if the abuse has been initiated by a female partner.
