About me

I am a Senior Accredited BACP Counsellor and Supervisor in the East Riding of Yorkshire. I offer a holistic and down to earth approach in dealing with the many challenges that life brings.

I feel it's important to work with the whole person and all that they bring.....emotionally, physically, spiritually, as well as taking into account lifestyle choices, since i believe that these factors influence how we think and feel thus impacting our lives and our relationships. As a buddhist practitioner I am interested in helping people find meaning and purpose in their lives and I offer mindfulness based exercises and relaxation techniques for those experiencing high levels of stress and anxiety. 

I have worked in both private practise and the voluntary sector over the last 20 years providing 1-1 counselling, couple work, and group facilitation to clients with a wide range of issues. I also provide counselling supervision on a 1-1 and group basis to both trainee and qualified counsellors. I have also worked with young people in various school settings over the last 10 years. 

I offer both short and long-term therapy so that clients are able to work at their own chosen pace, and am happy to arrange courses of therapy to suit clients personal, practical and financial needs. I am a registered, senior accredited practitioner and work to the BACP code of ethics.

Having experienced the benefits of counselling myself, I believe that despite how difficult or painful it may feel at times, it can also be extremely rewarding and enriching (in my experience clients laugh as much as they cry in the therapy process) Most importantly it gives us the space and time to attend to our emotional needs and offers us the chance to explore and possibly change the things in our lives that we are not happy with.

The things that matter to me personally in life are; love, honesty, wisdom and compassion, respect, equality and freedom of choice. I also believe in plain-speaking and tend to talk about things in a straightforward way, so if you feel unsure or wish to know more then give me a call; perhaps together we can find a way of exploring the things that matter to you in life.

Further information

I offer creative forms of therapy to individuals and groups who prefer a more physically expressive way of working on their issues. This might invlove the use of art-work, movement /role play, dreamwork, or relaxation techniques. Often clients will choose to bring something meaningful such as photographs, music, poetry or other personal memorabilia to help them express particular feelings and emotions in relation to difficulties they are facing in their lives.

I work from home in a quiet location close to the Humber Bridge Park and viewing area. My therapy room has been created to provide a calm, peaceful environment in which clients and supervisee's alike are invited to relax and 'be themselves'.
