About me

I offer counselling & psychotherapy in Hull, East Yorkshire. I help people to work through difficulties they are facing in life and to improve their mental health & emotional wellbeing. I also help couples to work through any relationship difficulties they are facing. 

I understand from my own personal journey of psychotherapy how difficult it can be to allow yourself to be vulnerable and ask for help. It takes courage and strength to access therapy and reaching out is often the hardest step. 

Training, qualifications & experience

Prior to being a therapist, I worked in mental health services for almost 20 years in supporting and managerial  roles. Throughout this time, I developed significant experience and a genuine passion in helping people with mental health difficulties. In particular, with adults and young people struggling with eating disorders or eating difficulties, and obsessive-compulsive behaviours.

I have a BSc (Hons) in Psychology and a Level 6 Diploma in Integrative & Transactional Analysis Psychotherapeutic Counselling. I'm also due to qualify with a level 7 in Psychotherapy in July 2024.

Wheelchair user access
Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
