Hi, I am a Psychotherapeutic Relational Centred Counsellor based at my private practice in Market Weighton.
I work with adults and also teenagers over the age of 14; I offer a safe, welcoming space in which I will support you to explore your difficulties. I am passionate about offering affordable counselling and therapy to those when they need it most. I have experience of working with childhood trauma, anxiety, loss, domestic abuse, divorce, separation and the difficulties that parenting can sometimes bring.
I offer both short term and long term work and I believe the key element to successful therapy is an enabling and trusting relationship in which you feel safe to talk. I will endeavour to listen to your difficulties in a non-judgemental way and allow you the time and space for you to talk and explore your way of being. To support you to do this I am able to draw upon different theories/types of psychotherapeutic counselling to find what best suits you, including working creatively. I believe in strict boundaries around confidentiality and abide by the code of ethics of both BACP and UKCP. I am DBS checked and hold indemnity insurance.
Taking those first steps to getting support for yourself can be scary for some people, I can’t promise that therapy will be easy but I have learnt from my own experience of therapy, that by giving ourselves the time and having a safe and confidential space to talk can enable us to grow and overcome our difficulties.
