About me

Based in Pocklington, I am a Psychotherapeutic Relational Centred Counsellor working with Adults, Young Adolescents and children, Parents/Families, Couples and Groups. Whilst appropriately qualified to counsel a wide range of issues, I am particularly active in the spheres of:
     Abuse - whether physical, sexual or emotional
     Depression and Anxiety
     Social, Family and Relationship Issues
     Low Self Esteem

Counselling is not always easy and there are no quick fixes! I believe that a therapist should not only listen but also understand, supporting clients through difficult periods.

My approach is Relational Centred. At the core of this approach is the importance of a trusting relationship between therapist and client. This trust results from a genuineness, empathy and acceptance shown by the therapist. It is from this therapeutic relationship that the client will gain the confidence necessary to explore their difficulties whether past or present. Sessions do not focus upon instruction, together we will explore associated thoughts and feelings in order to develop greater awareness and understanding of yourself with the aim of improving the quality of your life. I appreciate that each client is individual and counselling reflects the specific needs of each person.

Providing a safe and confidential setting for you to talk about the difficulties you may be experiencing, I offer both short and long term counselling/ psychotherapy depending on the wishes and needs of the client. I also offer other forms of therapy to aid in expression and self exploratory through art, play etc.

Training, qualifications & experience

I trained at the Scarborough Psychotherapy Training Institute (SCPTI) and an Advanced Diploma in Relational Centred Counselling which is accredited by the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP).

As a member of the UKCP and SCPTI I am bound by their Code of Ethics and Professional Practice. A key element of that is confidentiality. Everything that is discussed is kept in the strictest confidence whilst clients records are protected by the Data Protection Act (2000).

I have indemnity insurance cover and, as a professional requirement, I have been CRB checked.

I have studied and completed further training in:

  • Child Protection
  • Living & Working with Traumatised Children
  • Suicide,Loss & Bereavement
  • CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy)
  • Neuro Linguistic Programming
  • Body awareness
  • Self harm
  • Physical, Sexual Abuse & Rape
  • Mental Health
  • Addiction
  • Trauma (PTSD)
  • Relational Mindfulness
  • Systemic Therapy working with individuals, families, couples

My training and work experience have given me greater understanding and knowledge surrounding social and emotional factors that affect both adults and young adolescents. My work has included the early developmental stages, attachment issues and the emotional injury that occur within the family and education environment. I also work with adults and young adolescents who have been subject to physical abuse, sexual abuse, ritual abuse and rape. Working in both private practice and schools.
