Hester Robinson MBACP (Accred)
I offer an opportunity for you to explore your concerns in a caring, confidential and trusting atmosphere in my quiet, discreet consulting room in a village near Boroughbridge. I am committed to working with the individual and their specific needs, and offer a relationship based on empathy, non-judgement and honesty. I have extensive experience (both short and long-term) of working with clients with a wide range of issues.
Training, qualifications & experience
BACP Accredited Counsellor (2013); Grad Dip in Counselling (2010); Cert in Counselling (2008)
As well as working in private counselling practice, I also provide counselling for adults at NHS York and Scarborough Trust, and at the British Library in Boston Spa. I have also worked as a volunteer counsellor for ten year at Talking Spaces Counselling Service and Just B, a bereavement service in Harrogate. Previous to counselling I was a Registered Mental Health Nurse, and so have a strong background in working with mental health issues.
