About me

Relationships / marriages do sometimes break down and people can be left feeling angry, confused or scared. I am a fully qualified Relate trained counsellor, with over ten years' experience and I provide relationship counselling to both individuals and couples from rooms in the centre of Harrogate. I am currently managing my sessions either face to face with social distancing in place, or online via Skype or Zoom and appointments can be made throughout the week, either during the day or on an evening, to match your availability.

What is relationship counselling ?

Typically clients may have discovered that:
- they have grown apart
- there has been an affair
- parenting issues
- sex issues
- family dynamics
- relationships from the past are impacting on the present

No matter what state you feel that your relationship has reached, counselling can help you to explore when and where the relationship faltered and help you discover if there is a way forward.

What happens in counselling?

At our initial meeting you would talk through your current situation, the issues that you feel need addressing and how you think that counselling may help. I would then discuss with you how I might be able to work with you and we would then both plan a way forward together.

Some people find that this initial session is all they need to clear their thinking, help them decide what action to take and that no further counselling is necessary. If together we all feel that further counselling would be beneficial, I would organise on-going counselling sessions, usually on a weekly basis. I typically see most people for two to five further sessions, although this will very much depend on how our sessions progress as further issues may be uncovered.

During counselling, my goal is to help individuals and couples to think through their own situation and to work through their own issues. My aim is to help you to understand yourself better, to work things out for yourself and for you to be in a position to make your own decision about what to do next.

Member organisations

BACP

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.

Accessibility

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.
