About me and my therapy practice
I offer counselling support within York city centre to young people (16+) and adults.
During my Counselling training, I completed my placement at Talking Spaces in Harrogate where I worked with a broad range of clients both short and long term over a two year period. I also completed a placement at Place2be, and continue to do so, working creatively through play with children.
I currently provide counselling at York Women's Counselling Service (YWCS)
Perhaps you feel overwhelmed, anxious or confused by recent or past life events. You may feel stuck; finding yourself making the same unhelpful life choices or struggle with relationships, repeating negative patterns. You may need the space to find some self healing and acceptance. It is not my place to tell you what you need to do, rather we will work together to help you find clarity, move forward and regain control.
My aim is to make you feel heard and understood, without judgement. I do this by building a positive therapeutic relationship with you whilst treating you with care and respect. By drawing upon a range of approaches and techniques, you can expect me to provide a safe and confidential space in order for us to explore together what is going on for you.
You can be assured that I work ethically when exploring your thoughts, feelings and emotions, abiding by the BACP framework. I offer calm and warmth, alongside being non-judgemental, to enable you to build upon your own inner resources.
We will use our first session, without obligation, to assess your needs and ascertain your goals of therapy. We may work short or long term, with regular reviews, to ensure that you are getting what you need.
