Diane Elizabeth Blake MBACP (Accred).
East Riding Of Yorkshire
I offer a professional and approachable service, working as a Counsellor/Psychotherapist since 2003 and have a wealth of experience with many client groups. I am Accredited with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy. As well as private individual enquiries, I offer Employee Assistance for Companies, have worked for the NHS in the Steps to Wellbeing IAPT system and now in Lets Talk NHS.
Based in the centre of Beverley, and also in the village of Watton, near Driffield.
I offer Short, Medium and Long Term work for many issues including: Anxiety, Generalised Anxiety Disorder, Depression, Relationship Issues, Work Stress, Bereavement and other Losses, Sexual Abuse, Physical, Emotional and Mental Abuse, Low Self Confidence and Self Esteem, Childhood Trauma and issues from childhood family.
I am commited to my personal growth and professional development, having undertaken a further UKCP Accredited Advanced Integrative Psychotherapy training course. This is an integration of Relational/Developmental/Gestalt theoretical aspects, enabling great depth and profound change to happen.
I also have an interest in, and experience of, Shamanic Spirituality for personal growth, connecting with nature as a healing force. 'Walk Talk' sessions available out in in Nature.
I have a particular interest in Women's Empowerment and how women silence their inner knowing and their inner voice. I encourage and help women to understand how they do this and how to change their patterns in order to come into a way of living more authentically. I am intending to run a Women's Therapy Group in the near future. If you would like to attend a Women's group, please email or phone me.
At the core of my approach is the Therapeutic Relationship, providing a confidential, safe environment for exploring important issues, as well as a reparative experience for clients whose developmental needs were neglected.
I also offer Clinical Supervision to qualified and trainee counsellors. (See Supervision section).

Supervision & training
I am an Accredited BACP Counsellor/Psychotherapist and hold a Supervision Diploma, trained by Cascade Training. I offer a secure, safe place for qualified and trainee Counsellors & Psychotherapists to access top quality Supervision. One of the things which Supervisees have often requested is a place where they can be 'human' and can bring themselves with all the thoughts, feelings and questions which may arise when counselling clients. I don't always have all the answers to questions, but endevour to develop a solid, honest working alliance with Supervisees in order that clients get the best service and Therapists feel safe and effective in their work.View supervision profile
