BACP REGISTERED COUNSELLOR
As a BACP registered counsellor and Lecturer at York St John University, I offer a safe and confidential space for you to work through your problems. I work with people with a wide range of issues, including grief/loss, addictions, relationship problems, anxiety, depression, historic abuse and trauma.

Awareness Support Growth
My approach to counselling is person-centred. Placing you and your unique experiences at the centre of the work, I help us to build a trusting therapy relationship where you can work through your problems at your own pace. Helping you to identify themes and key emotions, we then explore them in a way that feels safe. I believe that working through thoughts and feelings in this way can lead to fresh insight and help you to find a way through your difficulties. For more information, please visit the FAQs section.
Led by your needs that emerge in sessions, I integrate other approaches to help you get the most out of the sessions. For example, we can explore behaviours and relationships with others in a way that helps you reconnect with people and the world around you, or ways to cope with anxiety to make life feel more manageable. Drawing on my own life experience, I feel equipped to help you with difficult life transitions, which could include career change, loss, end of relationship or other significant life events. The aim is to help you process your experiences and explore new meanings and choices. This is all done with the foundation of a supportive, caring and safe therapeutic relationship.
