About me

I offer a professional, confidential and approachable service from my Therapy room in the centre of Beverley and also in the village of Watton near Driffield. I have many years' experience working with people from all walks of life and with many of life's difficulties. I began working as a Counsellor in 2003. And am also now a UKCP Registered Psychotherapst, qualified in 2016.

As well as in Private Practice, I work with EAP for companies and large organisations and have also worked for the NHS in the IAPT service.

I do Short term, Brief and Focal Counselling, working with immediate goals in a short time frame, and Longer Term Psychotherapy, working at depth with historical patterns of relating. I work from a Relational-Developmental perspective and have a particular interest in childhood difficulties affecting emotional development which have an impact in adult relationships.  I can help you to gain awareness, understand and heal these difficulties so that you can make a more informed choice in relationships and other areas of life.

Issues I work with include: Anxiety, Generalised Anxiety Disorder, Depression, Health Anxiety, OCD. Trust, Bereavement, Grief and Loss, Abuse, Attachment Issues, Childhood Trauma and issues from childhood family, Developmental Deficits, Spirituality,  Relationship Difficulties, Separation and Divorce, Family Issues, Stress, Difficulties at Work, Low Self Confidence and Self Esteem.

I am Accredited by both the B.A.C.P. and the U.K.C.P. and work within their ethical guidelines.  I am committed to my own personal development, undertaking regular continued professional development courses and therapy.  Like all ethical therapists, I have the support of a professional Supervisor.  These things ensure that I can provide the very best service and experience of therapy for you.

If this is your first Counselling experience, it is natural if you feel a little anxious about contacting a Therapist. You will find that I provide a safe, boundaried space to explore your personal thoughts and feelings in a respectful, non-judgemental and insightful way, often providing a reparative experience while helping you to find your own way with the difficulties you bring.

In the current situation with Covid-19, I am now seeing clients in person from my room in Watton.  However, I am happy to offer telephone and online sessions if face to face isn't an option for you.

So call now to make an appointment.  I will endeavour to answer any questions/concerns you may have.  I look forward to hearing from you.

I also offer Clinical Supervision to Counsellors/Psychotherapists. (See Supervision section).

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.


British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.

My room in Beverley is on an upper floor with stairs. In Watton I am on the ground floor with easy accessibility.
