As an experienced and registered Humanistic Counsellor and NLP practitioner, my role is on recognising an individual's uniqueness and personal strength. I believe that everybody has within them the ability to find their own sense of wellbeing and inner peace through awareness, acknowledgement and authenticity. However, life sometimes confronts us with obstacles of all kinds and in all ways making it not always easy to feel hope or positivity, or to have a direction of any kind. Therefore, my commitment to you is to offer a supportive, professional and confidential therapeutic space, where emotions, thoughts and feelings can be explored together and at a pace which you, the client, feels safe enough to work through to encourage understanding, change and ultimately, wholeness within yourself.
I am a registered member of BACP, fully insured, CRB checked and have ongoing clinical supervision and regularly attend courses to enhance my professional skills practice.
I am also an experienced addictions counsellor trained by the Sussex Alcohol & Substance Use Services (SASS).
I offer both individual and couples counselling. I also offer online counselling either by Zoom or Skype. Long or short term therapy is available, depending on the individual needs and requirements of the client. Weekday and evening appointments are Monday to Friday up to 60 minutes duration.
My counselling room is situated in Bubwith, near Selby, with free parking and is easily accessible by bus routes.
Please feel free to call me on 01757 289987 to arrange an appointment or simply to find out more information without any obligation.

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.
