About us

Why the name Courage Counselling?

We chose the name Courage Counselling because we wanted to convey how courageous it is to be able to confront your feelings with honesty.  Our aim is to help you to sit with these feelings, however overwhelming they may feel, and help you to work through them at a pace that feels safe for you.

Victoria Palmer

How can I help?

If you’re feeling overwhelmed by your emotions it can be a frightening time. Whether it’s anxiety, depression, weight issues, anger, OCD, eating disorders….these can feel very overwhelming and can make us feel isolated and even perhaps ashamed of those feelings. I’ve learned through personal experience that the way to combat this is by allowing ourselves to be vulnerable – as the great Brené Brown says “Vulnerability sounds like truth and feels like courage”.

So, I invite you to join me as we access your courage and explore your truth. I can’t promise that it will be easy, but I can promise you that it will be worth the journey.

What kind of counselling do I provide?
I am trained as a person-centred counsellor. This means that our sessions are led by you because you are the expert in how you feel and what is most pressing for you. I will provide you with a safe space to explore your feelings without judgement. Practically, it’s just the two of us sitting opposite each other, building our therapeutic relationship. I provide tissues (which you may or may not need) and water.

Amanda Jarrold

How can I help?

I have a breadth of experience working with a range of issues that include trauma and attachment, historical sexual abuse, domestic violence, anxiety & depression, gender issues, sexuality, addictions, relationships, adoption, bereavement, work-related issues, self-harm, & eating disorders.

I am passionate about delivering an effective ethical practice in a non-judgemental, genuine way that respects and honours individual suffering and feels privileged to have the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of others.

You can expect from me understanding, acceptance, and honesty, the willingness to work with you at your own pace, to your own agenda. I can provide a compassionate, relational approach to working with your emotions and the rest can be up to you.

What kind of counselling do I provide?

I am an Integrative counsellor with experience of working with both private clients and clients within NHS, EAP, Private and Statutory sectors. The Integrative approach I offer embraces a Humanistic Relational perspective, believing in the individual’s capacity to grow, change and heal through a positive therapeutic relationship. I aim to provide a safe confidential space in which to explore difficulties, issues and concerns for genuine change to occur.

I hold a special interest in working with relational trauma and attachment, with individuals. This is reflected in my Continuous Professional Development training which includes Complex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder & I am currently training in EMDR.

In addition, I am a registered Adoption Counsellor working with post-adoption. I am trained in Developmental Dyadic Psychotherapy (DDP) working with children and their families in an attachment focussed way.

How can I help?

If you want to re-focus your life or are experiencing difficulties, then therapy can help you. Often experiences in the past can affect your relationships and behaviour in the present and this can stop you from moving forward and developing as an individual. We can work together to explore your thoughts, feelings, and behaviour, and with self-compassion and openness to new re-framed experiences, you can achieve personal growth and change – out of despair, hope can follow.

I have experience of working with a range of issues that include bereavement and loss. In this present climate due to COVID-19 and social distancing, loss of connectedness and loss of finances are very prominent. I also work with trauma and PTSD, anxiety and depression, rape, historical childhood abuse, control and coercion, low self-esteem and confidence, attempted suicide, bullying, exam-pressure, self-harm, emotional eating, and relationship issues. I also work with clients who are pre or post-termination of pregnancy and Post Natal depression.

I am passionate about helping individuals achieve their goals, no matter how big or small they may feel they are. I treat every client with respect, empathy, and warmth, and feel very privileged to be trusted to share their experiences. I will not rush you, but work with you, on your agenda, at a pace that feels right for you, in a non-judgemental and genuine way. I would describe myself as being very down to earth and caring.

What kind of counselling do I provide?

I am a humanistic counsellor, my training was initially as a person-centered counsellor, but over the years I have adapted my style, and my approach is now an Integrative one. I have experience of working with both private clients and clients referred through the NHS Let’s Talk account. I believe that individuals have the capacity to change and to grow through a positive therapeutic relationship. I provide a safe, confidential space, where you can feel free to explore difficulties, issues, and concerns without judgement. I hope that through therapy, you can achieve your goal, feel empowered, and have the skills and renewed thinking to deal with whatever challenges you may encounter in the future. I work with adults and young adults from the age of 14 years.

I am able to work creatively or work with your ‘inner child’ which is a metaphor for your ‘younger self’. My main area of interest and Continuing Professional Development encompasses training for trauma and Complex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, particularly around adults abused as children.

Sam de Martino

How can I help?

If you are experiencing difficulties in your life and feel there are things you want to work through then therapy could help you. Our past experiences can often impact both on the here and now and our future if we don’t address them. I am here to help clients to explore their feelings, thoughts, and behaviours in a non-judgemental, warm, and caring way so that positive change can occur and you can feel happier in your life going forward.

I have a wide range of experience working with a range of different issues that include loss and bereavement. I also have experience of working with clients who have experienced depression, work-related issues, relationship difficulties, child-parent conflicts, abuse and health issues, and low self-esteem.

I offer both face to face and telephone counselling sessions. I am here to support and work with clients who feel they would benefit from talking to a therapist about their worries and concerns both now and perhaps going forward.

I am passionate about helping people to move forward and make positive changes in their lives. I treat every client with empathy and respect. I feel privileged to work as a therapist and value the experience of working with my clients. In therapy, it is important to build the working alliance between the counsellor and client so that the client feels able to talk about their experiences.

I work at the client’s pace ensuring the client feels comfortable in the sessions. I would describe myself as a calm, caring hardworking person.

What kind of counselling do I provide?

I am a humanistic counsellor, my training was in person-centered counselling. I like this model as a key part of this approach is ensuring that the client experiences the core conditions which are empathy, congruence, and unconditional positive regard. I believe all clients should experience these in therapy. I also integrate other counselling approaches such as Transactional Analysis. I believe as a counsellor different approaches work for different clients. I adapt my sessions to best meet the needs of my client. I have experience of working with a wide range of clients of different ages. I have worked with clients both privately and seen clients through the NHS ‘Let’s Talk’ service. I also have experience working with students in a college setting from the age of 16 upwards.

I believe we all have the capacity to change and improve our lives for the better. I provide a safe space for personal growth to occur.

Lorraine Emms

How can I help?

If you are experiencing difficulties, and want to refocus your life then therapy can help you. Often experiences in the past can affect your relationships and behaviour in the present and this can stop you from moving forward and developing as an individual. Taking that first step to seek out help can be daunting, I want to assure you that I will be empathic and non-judgemental and will allow you to take as much time as you need to talk through your thoughts and feelings. Understanding yourself really is invaluable and can lead to change and being able to live a full and happy life.

I am an experienced Relational Centred Counsellor having trained over ten years ago at SCPTI (Scarborough Counselling and Psychotherapy Training Institute). Since qualifying I have worked in various settings including within the NHS Let’s Talk, Children’s Centres, Rape Crisis, Survivors (Adult survivors of Sexual Abuse), and private practice.

I have worked with a range of issues that include bereavement and loss. In this present climate due to COVID-19 and social distancing, loss of connectedness and loss of finances are very prominent.

I feel privileged to work as a therapist and be part of an individual’s journey to self – discovery. I will treat you with respect and allow you to explore your thoughts and feelings in a safe contained space.

I would describe myself as being very down to earth, creative and caring.

What kind of counselling do I provide?

I am a Relational Centred Counsellor and use a number of different theories and models, including Person-Centred Counselling, Gestalt, Transactional Analysis, Attachment Theory and goal setting. I have experience of working with both private clients and clients within NHS, Private and Statutory sectors.

My approach offers a Humanistic Relational perspective, I believe in an individual’s capacity to grow, change and heal through a positive therapeutic relationship. I aim to provide a safe confidential space in which to explore difficulties, issues and concerns so genuine change can occur.
