About me

Welcome to my practice: Grow Your Potential.

I believe we all have an amazing ability to learn, develop and become who we were truly meant to be. We just need to plant the seed of change, to see what is truly possible in our lives. 

My way of working is compassionate but also gently challenging. Helping you feel more centred in your life whilst also giving you the momentum to reach forward and make the most of your future.

I have over 10 years of psychotherapeutic experience, providing a practical, tailored approach to help give you long term results. 

I work with:

Anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, self-defeating beliefs, eating issues, bereavement, relationship/family issues, or anything else which may be causing you concern and holding you back in your life.

Please visit my website for more information on how I work, my up to date blog and free online meditations and podcasts. The link is at the bottom of page.

If you have any questions at all do contact me, I am more than happy to talk about how psychotherapy works and how it can help you. 

You can also arrange an initial consultation so we can discuss your needs. 

I work with clients from all over the UK, world and face to face in York.

Look forward to hearing from you.
