About me

I am a qualified Counsellor & Coach based Scarborough, North Yorkshire. I am a member of the National Counselling Society and I am fully insured and undertake regular clinical supervision. As a counsellor I have worked at length with individuals with anxiety issues, low mood and depression. I have worked extensively with young people in challenging environments, finding ways to overcome difficulties with family life, removing barriers to education and goal setting.

More recently my focus has been on living with and beyond cancer. While working at Prostate Cancer UK I provided therapy for men who had been diagnosed with Prostate Cancer. I have an interest in working with people who are experiencing difficulties with sex and the impact this has on relationships.

I offer you respect, dignity and a safe space to explore what is important to you. You are welcome to discuss working with me by text, phone or email. I see clients face to face in Scarborough and Malton.
