About me and my therapy practice

Working in York city centre, I am a BACP registered Counsellor with a Postgraduate Diploma, offering support to adults with a wide range of issues.

Perhaps you feel that you find yourself in the same situations, or that anxiety and low self-esteem are impacting on your daily life. Maybe you are struggling with changes that seem out of your control, or feelings of isolation. You may need space to heal after distressing life experiences.

My aim is to provide a safe, confidential space where we can work at a pace that feels right for you. Together we will work alongside one another to help you make sense of your experiences, thoughts and feelings.

Drawing on counselling approaches most suited to your needs, I will find a way of working that is tailored to you. I will not give advice or opinions, but together we will build a therapeutic relationship, where you can be assured your thoughts and emotions will be truly heard and understood with respect and without judgement.

I am passionate about helping clients believe change and healing is possible and will aim to help you gain confidence, clarity, and new perspectives enabling you to make choices that feel right for you.

During my time working in a specialist sexual violence and domestic abuse organisation (Aegis), I supported clients who experienced PTSD, dissociation, flashbacks and panic attacks. Many people struggled with relationships, self-doubt, trust and shame. 

Having also worked in General and Chritable Counselling Organisations and a Drug and Alcohol Recovery Service, I have experience working with a broad spectrum of issues including depression, generalise anxiety disorder, bereavement, eating disorders, self-harm and suicidal ideation. 

Our first session is free of charge with no obligation. You will choose whether counselling is on a long or short term basis.
