East Riding Of Yorkshire
I choose to be a more mobile type of practitioner as I can appreciate that the sparseness of East Riding makes it challenging to access support, especially if you find it difficult to travel. I have rooms that I hire in various centres and practices across East Riding and I endeavour to arrange our sessions at a location that is suitable for you.
I currently meet clients at a safe and confidential space within Beverley, Bridlington, Goole, Hessle, Market Weighton and Pocklington for both long term and short term counselling.
In order to discuss arranging sessions together please leave me a message via email, text or voicemail providing your home town and a rough outline of your availability and I will respond at my next available opportunity.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a Registered Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP) and hold a Postgraduate Diploma in Counselling.
I began counselling in 2014. During this time I worked for 2 local charities in York; one of which was a general counselling service and the other was a specialised sexual abuse service. Since leaving York I have worked for two leading national mental health organisations in Hull as a Primary Care Counsellor on behalf of the NHS. I continue to provide counselling on behalf of the NHS alongside my private practice.
My approach is Humanistic/Integrative. This means that I seek to establish a relationship with all my clients based upon the values of respect and honesty, in line with the BACP Code of Ethics. I won't tell you what to do but I will orientate my approach around helping you to unlock your own inner resources in a way that is empowering and unique to you as an individual, whether that means making some life changing decisions or simply coming to terms with your situation as it is. I am also free to draw upon other modalities should we both feel that they may be of benefit to your particular perspective and goals for therapy.
One of my personal interests is the "unconscious"; using the power of dreams, imagination and creativity to discover the parts of ourselves that remain largely hidden yet have a tremendous impact on how we conduct our lives. The other one is "mindfulness"; learning to develop our faculty of awareness which allows us to see ourselves objectively, manage our unhelpful thinking habits and learn to appreciate the smaller things in life.
