Diana Yorath MBACP- Addictions Counsellor
I am a Humanistic Existential Counsellor having qualified in 2014 with a Foundation Degree in Counselling.
The way I work is person centred, but I have received training in Motivational Interviewing techniques and CBT. My aim is to treat each person as an individual and as such my approach can vary depending on what works for you and what you require from therapy.
I have many years of experience of working with clients who are dealing with addiction and I am able to support you to explore the triggers and alternative coping strategies.
My work with a Cancer Charity has brought me into contact with those who are living with or survivors of cancer. Therapy provides a space to explore the impact of cancer on you and your loved ones.
Life can be difficult and sometimes we all need some help to make semblance of our thoughts in order to create clarity. I can provide you with a safe and confidential space to talk about your hopes and fears and where you will not be judged.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
