Zara Turner Counselling
The Horsforth Centre
138 Low Lane
Hello, I'm Zara and I work as a counsellor at The Horsforth Centre, and at the Castle Clinic in Knaresborough. I believe that everybody can hit a patch in their life when they feel they are not coping as they would like to, whether it is because of anxiety becoming over-whelming, or through depressive thoughts leaving a sense of emptiness. Sometimes people can be struggling with a recent difficult life event, or perhaps are carrying unresolved pain from childhood. Whatever the issue, I always aim to provide a supportive and warm setting, where the client can share what is distressing them; we then can work as a team to discover the best way forward.
I am originally from N.Ireland and have a particular interest in anxiety and how it affects us both emotionally and physically. A safe, confidential space in which to talk and be listened to can be the first step to a deeper, more compassionate understanding of oneself, and can start to clarify how we want life to be.
