About me and my therapy practice

I work with children, young people and adults in York and Ryedale and use a range of ways to help people work through and process difficult feelings and experiences. I believe that it is through developing a relationship of absolute trust that my clients can process and come to terms with whatever they may be struggling with. Life can be very hard at times, and having some support can make all the difference. If it is more practical, I can see clients in schooI.

My work is integrative which means I use a range of theoretical perspectives. I use talk, play and creative work and games to build the therapeutic relationship. My work is person-centred which means that my clients are in charge. I won't ask intrusive questions, we talk about what is troubling the child as and when they are ready. 

My background is in teaching and supporting children with Social, Emotional and Mental Health difficulties. I have a good understanding of the pressures  young children and young people experience and the impact this can have on families.

I have particular expertise in supporting bereaved adults and children.

I aim to work closely and cooperatively with parents and caregivers.

Practice description

I work with individuals face to face and offer a confidential space to explore difficult feelings.

I have consulting rooms in central York and in Ryedale.

If needed I can visit school aged children and young people at school (if school agrees).

My first session

In our first session, my aim is for us to decide together whether we are comfortable with each other. I believe the therapeutic relationship can only develop in the context of trust and ease.

I will ask a few questions and between us we will work out how we can work together. With younger clients, we may play, I will lay out various activities to be chosen from.

At the end of this session (which is free of charge) we will discuss whether to continue.

What I can help with

Abuse, Anger management, Anxiety, Bereavement, Depression, Loss, Post-traumatic stress, Relationships, Self esteem, Trauma

Types of therapy

Creative therapy, Existential, Humanistic, Integrative, Person centred, Play therapy, Transactional analysis

Clients I work with

Adults, Children, Young people

How I deliver therapy

Long-term face-to-face work, Short-term face-to-face work
