I am an experienced, accredited Psychotherapist working in Scarborough and Malton.
I provide a confidential and supportive space for you to explore whatever difficulties you are facing, whether current issues or relating to your past.
I can offer short or long term therapy and have experience of working with a wide range of concerns and difficulties, through the counselling service that I work for and in my private practice.
Counselling can offer a confidential and non-judgemental space to talk about whatever is troubling you. I believe that we all hold the ability to solve our own problems, however sometimes we get stuck and need some support at difficult times.
I start with an initial session at a reduced fee for you to discuss your reasons for coming and to help you decide if I am the therapist for you.
I am a member of UKCP (www.psychotherapy.org.uk) and abide by their Code of Ethics.
Please feel free to contact me by phone (07976 874341) or email (email@example.com).
