About Diane Whitehead Therapies


Life can be a struggle. Sometimes we feel we have lost our way, finding it difficult to know which way to turn.

Sometimes we feel we have lost touch with who we are and what would best support us.

Sometimes we can resolve these difficulties ourselves, but sometimes we need support to do this.

Counselling can help by providing you with a safe space to explore your thoughts, feelings and behaviours in the strictest of confidence. I will listen to you with sensitivity and empathy and be attentive and responsive. I will not judge you, instead I will support you as you explore whatever is troubling you. 

I work with any issue you may bring, but have a specific interest in anxiety and low self confidence, bereavement and anger management. I work with children from around 12 years of age and adults.

My practice is in Church Fenton, nearest towns Tadcaster and Selby. Easily accessable from Leeds, York, Castleford and Pontefract. I have a private but comfortable and cosy office, where you will be welcomed and helped to look at whatever is your trouble. I would love to see you. 



During my career within the NHS, where for over 35 years I enjoyed working as a nurse, midwife, manager and commissioner, I also trained as a Person Centred Counsellor to help me communicate and help my patients.

More recent employment has been with North Yorkshire Police as a Welfare Adviser and as a bereavement counsellor at Martin House Children’s Hospice in Boston Spa.  Here I worked with parents who have experienced the death of their child or grandchild to illness or sudden and unexpected death such as accident or suicide.  

I now work in private practice from Church Fenton as well as offering counselling to a small Leeds based charity; Little Hiccups.
