About me and my therapy practice
Whatever brings you to consider therapy, I think you're taking a brave step towards understanding yourself better. I work with clients towards goals if you have them, but if you don't - and you just want me to meet you where you are - I'll be there.
You can expect authenticity from me, and a confidential space to share your feelings, with compassion and without judgement.
I may offer techniques and reflections but I will not give you advice, because I am here to listen openly, supporting your healing and your self-discoveries.
My hope for every client is that through our time together, you will discover that no matter how hard things feel right now, you are not broken. You are enough.
I work with an integrative humanistic approach, using a variety of methods, depending on the needs of my clients because I see you as the expert on you.
Sessions last one hour and take different forms. They may include creative exercises or we might try breathing and grounding techniques to find what suits you best. Or we can simply talk.
I hope you will think of your sessions as an opportunity to focus on your needs. Each client shares a unique journey with me, and I look forward to helping you navigate yours.
I hold an enhanced DBS certificate, having worked with a range of clients in York through a local hospice and a local women's charity.
My first session
I provide a free 20-minute telephone consultation for us to discuss what will be most helpful to you and how we might work together.
We can then start our first full session from a more informed and comfortable place.
