About me and my therapy practice

I can support you when life is feeling overwhelming, and when you are experiencing loss, stress, anxiety or depression, and through negative thoughts, feelings, and emotions.

We can work together to explore what is happening, I will listen and try to understand your situation. We may explore your past such as childhood and past relationships and how it affects you now. I have an interest in mindfulness and dreamwork, and can work with couples and individuals.  

Practice description

Based in the Osbaldwick/Tang Hall area of York, there is parking.  I prefer to offer sessions in person, my therapy room is a quiet and calming space. 

I value and welcome open communication within our counselling relationship to ensure you feel on track.  In my counselling approach, mindfulness is an interpersonal ‘way of being’ with clients.  Mindfulness for me helps cultivate inner acceptance and awareness, which in turn enables me to offer a client acceptance, empathy and genuineness. 

My first session

I offer a brief zoom appointment initially to get an idea of what you are looking for from counselling and to make sure I am the right counsellor for you. Following that, I will email you some information about how I work and my fees and will then leave the decision for you to contact me if you decide you would like to make an appointment. I am happy to offer counselling aged 16 plus. I have a registered therapy dog and if we feel helpful to the therapy he can join us in your session.
