About me and my therapy practice

Perhaps you feel there is no one who understands what you are going through?  Or you may be afraid that family and friends are getting bored of your problems?  Or maybe you feel you need a neutral person who can offer a new view on whatever you are struggling with right now.

Practice description

I am an integrative counsellor and psychotherapist. I tailor my approach to each individual who asks for my help, doing my best to explain things without using jargon. I invite you to tell me regularly how counselling is working for you (or not) so that we can make changes if we need to.

I'm responsible for the process of counselling - contracting, reviewing, timekeeping - but you are responsible for the content, so in each session, once we have concluded any necessary "business", I hand over to you to say what you'd like to talk about. In this way we make sure we are using the time to explore the topics you choose.

People that have researched counselling tell us that the most important factor - after your own motivation and commitment - is the quality of the working relationship between us. That's why it is important for you to decide if I am "your kind of therapist" as well as me having a chance to say whether I am competent to work with your particular difficulty.

For those who are interested in theory, you may like to know that I use elements from:

  • person-centred counselling
  • exploratory goal-corrected psychotherapy(C) (EGCP)
  • eye movement desensitisation and reprocessing (EMDR)
  • transactional analysis (TA)
  • cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT).

My first session

An assessment appointment lasts for one hour (60 minutes) and my current fee is £50. The fee is payable before the session by bank transfer or PayPal. Fees are reviewed annually in April.

In the assessment session we will:

  • discuss what has brought you to counselling at this time and what you hope to get from it
  • discuss your understanding of counselling and how it works
  • decide together whether we can work together productively
  • if so, consider how best we can work together and how many sessions we will have

I offer both short-term and long-term counselling. The number of sessions will be agreed between us at this stage but can be shortened or extended later by mutual agreement.

If counselling does not appear suitable, or I am not the best person to help you, I will signpost you to other sources of help.

Abuse, Anger management, Anxiety, Asperger syndrome, Bereavement, Cultural issues, Depression, Health related issues, Loss, Personal development, Post-traumatic stress, Relationships, Self esteem, Sexuality, Spirituality, Stress, Trauma, Work related issues

About me and my therapy practice

I'm an integrative practitioner with 13 years post-qualification experience across the voluntary sector, private practice and occupational health.  As a supervisor I am particularly interested in working with the human fear system and the human attachment system.

Practice description

I am a qualified supervisor holding the Level 6 Certificate in Therapeutic Counselling Supervision from City and Islington College (2013). I offer clinical supervision to trainee and qualified counsellors and psychotherapists. I am a member of Yorkshire Supervisors Forum and I am on the approved list of supervisors for York St John University, University of Leeds and Scarborough Sixth Form College.

I supervise in an integrative way with a particular focus on using insights from Exploratory Goal-Corrected Psychotherapy(C) to inform our work.


My first session

There is no charge for our first meeting at which we can discuss your supervision requirements and interests and decide together whether I would be the right supervisor for your practice.
