About me and my therapy practice
I am a counsellor and psychotherapist based in York and I work with adults and young people (16+). I am registered and accredited by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and I am a Chartered Psychologist. I have been in practice since 2013. I have worked with adults and young people in education settings, the NHS, a women’s counselling centre, and a practice for children, young people and families who had experience of trauma. I have been in private practice since 2018.
People come to therapy for a range of reasons. It can be useful to share the things that are causing you worry or distress with a person who can help to make sense of some of these concerns and support you to a place that feels better. I am trained in humanistic integrative counselling and psychotherapy. This means that I treat each person individually, and we will work at your own pace, exploring the issues that you identify as important to you. My starting point is that you are the expert about the stories that you hold.
In my practice, I work with people with a range of backgrounds and things that cause them distress. People of all genders, sexualities and backgrounds are welcome. Since 2016 the majority of my practice has been with people who have experienced trauma. I have additional training in Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR), which is an evidence-based therapy usually used to help process memories that are particularly distressing. I am also a trauma-informed yoga teacher and therefore integrate these understandings of mind-body-based and mindfulness practices to my therapeutic work.
My first session
There are a few ways of working out if you think I can help. You are welcome to email me, text or give me a call. I offer a free initial 20 minute phone consultation if you wish. A phone call might help if you are not sure how you might get on with me, or if you have any questions about how we might work together, and if you would like to share more about what brings you to therapy at this time.
You are also welcome to book an initial appointment for 50 minutes, where we can discuss the issues that bring you to therapy and how I might help. Be reassured that choosing to come for an initial session, or to talk on the phone or via email, does not mean that you are obliged to work with me.
