Hello, my name is Steve; I have a counselling, psychotherapy & supervision practice in Horsforth, LS18, where I see individuals, couples & families. I hope you will get a sense of me and what kind of a counsellor I am on this page but if you would like to know more, please have a look at the other pages or, if you prefer, get in touch. The main links to other pages can be found by clicking the colourful blocks at the top of the page and by looking for the row of links at the top and bottom of each page. You will also find many underlined 'active links', as you read the material, each of which will take you to other information that I hope you will find useful. Information about counselling fees and cancellations can be found here and other information about counselling sessions, here.
