About me

....Maybe you feel overwhelmed by your emotions and don't know how to manage them.

....Maybe you are 'fine', but feel this is not quite good enough.

During difficult times in our lives, when we are feeling stuck or alone with our problems, counselling can provide the space and support required for change. I offer a warm, calm and confidential space where we can work together to explore your thoughts, feelings and behaviours in an empathic, non-judgemental way.

I will not judge or tell you what to do, I will listen and help support you to make sense of things in order to help you develop a more positive approach to aspects of your life, my aim is to empower you so  that you are able to make the right life choices for you.

Practising from a humanistic approach I have the ability to incorporate integrative models where appropriate, as I believe every client is unique so tailoring my approach enables me to work in ways that suit you as an individual.

I am a fully qualified counsellor with experience in working with adults and young people aged 16+. I work short term and long term depending on your specific needs.

My Experience includes:

  • Anxiety
  • Social anxiety
  • Depression
  • Identity issues
  • Loss/ bereavement
  • Low mood
  • Lack of motivation
  • Procrastination
  • Post/Pre natal depression
  • Self esteem
  • Self harm
  • Shame
  • Stress

Working as college counsellor at York College, and as a counsellor at 30 Clarence Street, young peoples service (now York Mind) supporting 16-25 year old's through their difficulties, I have worked with a wide range of issues- from anxiety and depression to sexual abuse and identity issues.

I work in a warm, supportive and collaborative way, making sure your voice is heard and respected to help bring you greater satisfaction and stability. I offer a safe space where you can explore your emotions at your own pace.

I have experience of working within the higher education setting, such as the University of York as Specialist Mental Health Mentor and draw from a Solution Focused, Mindfulness and goal approach, assisting students to motivate and prioritise their studies, as a way to reduce stress and mental heath issues.

I currently combine my private practice with working for the NHS as a Mental Heath Practitioner, based in GP surgeries, I offer talking therapies to clients referred to me by their GP, providing 'tools' and coping strategies that assist in the process of making positive changes, drawing from a Cognitive Behavioural and Solution focused approach.

I have experience working for PANDAS (Pre and Post Natal Depression Advice) service, supporting women and their partners/family deal with the effects of pre and postnatal depression.

I offer two clinics in which I carry out my private practice, please contact me for more details.
