About me

Would you like to speak confidentially to someone who will be objective and not judge you? I have helped people overcome emotional and physical trauma, depression, anxiety and relationship issues. I have also helped people explore issues of gender and sexuality.

I am an approachable, qualified BACP registered counsellor & psychotherapist, offering a supportive and confidential space where you can explore the issues that concern you.

My approach is humanistic, integrative. I work with your goals and objectives for counselling, at your pace. I aim to be active and present in the process, offering my thoughts, feelings or potentially a different perspective, if I feel this will help you.

Often taking the first step towards counselling is difficult, however the process of being attentively listened to, with respect and without judgment, can have a profound impact on how you are able to manage, and make sense of the difficulties that you may be experiencing, and in finding the solutions that you seek.

I have a natural, relaxed approach and aim to help you feel as comfortable as possible.

If you are uncertain whether I can help with your particular concern, please give me a call and we can discuss this, with no obligation to book an appointment.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am fully insured and a registered member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy), and I abide by their Ethical Framework for Counselling Professions.

Qualifications

  • BSc Therapeutic Counselling (Leeds Beckett University)
  • Diploma HE Counselling & Psychotherapy (Leeds Beckett University)

Experience

In addition to private practice, I have worked for two counselling organisations in Yorkshire, Open Minds Counselling in Doncaster and currently Wellspring Therapy & Training in Harrogate.

Prior to training and qualifying as a counsellor, I have worked within large corporate organisations, the third sector and small start up companies, as well as being self-employed overseas. Having worked in both employee and management roles, I understand the issues involved in both these settings, and how they can impact on your mental and physical wellbeing.

I have experience of helping people with the following areas, however this is not a complete list:

  • Managing anxiety, depression or anger
  • Relationship and family issues
  • Dealing with stress at work and workplace bullying
  • Feelings of being stuck, not living to your full potential
  • Issues related to being transgender, the transitioning process & being the partner of a trans person
  • Sexuality issues
  • Gender Dysphoria
  • Dealing with the trauma of childhood sexual abuse
  • Managing life changes like divorce, separation, retirement, redundancy, death of a loved one, expat issues

I also have experience with people who are dealing with debilitating medical conditions, e.g. sight loss.

Please call me to discuss your needs if you are uncertain whether I am able to help you with your concerns.
