I have a wide range of experience working as a counsellor. I recently retired after 12 years as a counsellor for the NHS. I am a counsellor for North Yorkshire County Council and I also worked at York St John University. I have been in private practice for over 20 years.
I extend a warm safe environment so people are able to reflect and consider their feelings and problems. I see my role as a facilitator helping people make better sense of their life and to start to make changes.
I am familiar working with many aspects of the human condition and have a wide experience of counselling both genders and people aged from 16 to 85.
My practice is based in the centre of Harrogate with good parking and easy access to both bus and train stations.
I am able to offer very flexible times for sessions to include early morning and evening sessions as well as Saturday morning.
