About me

Hello, I am Beverley,  a Counsellor and Psychotherapist, and the owner and founder of Changing Seasons Counselling.  A very warm welcome to you. 

Thank you for reading my profile.  Counselling can be daunting yet enlightening, and I hope to be able to help you in some way.  Through my many years of counselling experience, I have developed my practice through continued training and worked alongside hundreds of clients varying in age, culture and social economic group .  Each person, and whatever they bring, is unique and I will help them to have their own counselling experience which will be personal to them.

My work as a therapist began in a Further Education college setting working with young people struggling through adolescence and  pressures that were affecting their day to day life.  I also worked with Cruse Bereavement, assisting people who were dealing with grief and loss - something which can happen to anyone at any time.

After completing two years psychodynamic training at Leicester University and later a  Person-Centred Counselling Diploma, I furthered my training through Relate and The University of Hull to become a Relationship Therapist. I worked with Relate for 9+ years, during which time I completed a Post-Graduate Certificate in Systemic Practice (Couples & Families) through Birkbeck College, University of London.  This has enabled me to work with the whole family looking at the different dynamics within families and the alternative perspectives each brings.  This work is really helpful when a family feels "stuck" with a problem and can see no way out.  I can help the family to find new ways to move forward and re-frame their thinking.

There are painful times in life when we stumble upon adversity, health issues, financial issues, loss, relationship issues etc.. Talking to a professional at these times can help us to feel less confused, more understood, and help to build resilience to gain more control of our lives.

I can offer face to face, Zoom video, or telephone therapy and I work with couples, families, children and young people (from age 5), and individual adults.  Younger children have found it beneficial to talk about their feelings and emotions through play engagement, and in my experience I have seen positive changes in their self-esteem, confidence and self-development, particularly in children who ordinarily find it difficult to express themselves.

My experience and knowledge includes working with relationship issues, transitions, family difficulties, self esteem, depression, anxiety, autistic spectrum, ADHD and grief and loss. My style of working is integrative, which means I incorporate different elements of counselling models into my therapy to help the individual needs of my clients and what they bring. I offer an understanding, supportive yet appropriately challenging approach to my clinical work, thus supporting clients to effect meaningful change and build better relationships.

  • As a Registered Member of BACP, and an Accredited Registrant of National Counselling and Psychotherapy Society (NCPS), I am bound by their code of ethics and have monthly clinical supervision, regular continued professional development/continued training.
  • I have full professional indemnity insurance.
  • I am approved and registered with DBS (Disclosure Barring Service).
  • I am available for sessions in a beautiful and safe space in Tadcaster, LS24, and am easily accessible from Garforth, Sherburn, Tadcaster, Wetherby, Leeds, York, and Harrogate.
  • I am also available for telephone and video counselling, and Walk & Talk therapy.

Please contact me for a confidential and informal discussion.  I can help you to decide whether therapy could  be beneficial for you, or a person you care about, at this time.

I would love to hear from you and help you work towards a more positive life.

My very best wishes.

Registered / Accredited

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.

NCPS
National Counselling & Psychotherapy Society (NCPS)

The National Counselling and Psychotherapy Society

This Not For Profit association of counsellors and psychotherapists aim to support the counselling profession, members and training organisations.

In 2013 the NCS register was accredited by the Professional Standards Authority under the Accredited Voluntary Register Scheme. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

BACP
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Further information

AUTISTIC SPECTRUM/ADHD

My experience includes offering support to clients on the autistic spectrum, either with a formal diagnosis or undiagnosed. For these individuals, feelings and emotions can be difficult to express and communication is often confusing.  I have worked with many individuals helping them explore ways of negotiating the world in an easier way. I can offer help to:

* families who have a child needing a more flexible type of counselling approach or need help towards understanding the difficulties their child is experiencing or are perhaps considering seeking a diagnosis

* couples where one partner is on the autistic spectrum and communication is difficult in the relationship.  We can work on strategies to help with these differences

* individuals with high anxiety, low confidence and social difficulties who may need help in organisation skills to manage their life better, regulate emotions or manage poor working memory or sensory processing difficulties better

My approach is calm and supportive and I am of the understanding that relationships may be difficult to form so more sessions may be necessary to build a trusting therapeutic relationship together.

I attend regular continued professional development training, and have monthly clinical supervision.

I am a member of two  peer supervision groups; one with therapists working with neurodivergent clients, and one with couples therapists.
