Diane Elizabeth Blake MBACP (Accred) & UKCP Reg (Accred).
IN THIS TIME OF COPING WITH THE Covid-19 VIRUS, I AM OFFERING ONLINE AND TELEPHONE SESSIONS. IF YOU ARE EXPERIENCING FINANCIAL DIFFICULTY BECAUSE OF THE VIRUS I AM HAPPY TO CONSIDER REDUCED RATES. MY FEE WILL BE BETWEEN £35 - £50 PER HOURLY SESSION. PLEASE BE HONEST ABOUT WHAT YOU CAN AFFORD. IF YOU CAN AFFORD MY REGULAR FEE OF £50, YOU WILL BE HELPING THOSE WHO CANNOT AS I AM UNABLE TO OFFER EVERYONE REDUCED RATES. I STILL HAVE OVERHEADS SUCH AS PROFESSIONAL SUPERVISION, INSURANCE AND MEMBERSHIPS. THANK YOU FOR YOUR CO-OPERATION.
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. As well as in Private Practice, I work with EAP for companies and large organisations and also 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 happy to offer telephone or Skype 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).
