About me and my therapy practice
Are you looking for help with something that’s causing you unhappiness or stress?
I work in a practical, down-to-earth way to understand exactly how you’re feeling. We’ll go along at your pace to find a better way forward for you, in a supportive, warm and safe atmosphere. The first priority is to identify tools that will help you in your current day to day life and with these in place, you can hope to see an improvement very quickly, After that we will look at longer term solutions and strategies.
Sessions can be weekly, fortnightly or less often, to suit you, and there is no set number of sessions: we can work short term or for a longer period, depending on what you want to cover and keeping costs manageable. An initial low cost session is offered, with no obligation so you can decide if you want to proceed.

I’m fully qualified (member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists) and have over 10 years experience of counselling as well as another 10 in support and advice roles.
My counselling qualification is from the University of York St John and since then I’ve undertaken regular additional training in a wide range of topics.
As well as my work as a counsellor I’ve worked in the voluntary sector since 1998, setting up local support services and co-hosting an online forum for lone parents.
I’ve also written and facilitated various courses covering subjects such as Stress, Anxiety, Confidence Building and Dealing with Teenagers, and worked for five years across York with parent support groups.
