About me

Hi, Are you struggling with life or your relationships? Perhaps there's an issue you're finding difficult to manage - or perhaps you're feeling low, anxious or depressed, life in general just not what it should be. I work in a client-centred way, offering you warmth, respect and acceptance, and will not judge you, whatever you struggle with. I have worked with many different issues and believe that in a caring, supportive and confidential environment, you will be able to work through your difficulties, and find your way forward to a more fulfilling life.

I work with individuals and with couples; and am also a qualified play therapist working with children aged 4-12 from a fully equipped play therapy room.

Sometimes just one opportunity to talk through an issue or decision can be enough to clarify thinking. If you think this could help you, then I can offer you an extended one-off session, with the option to use creative media, to help you find insight into your situation.

I work both on-line and via telephone; and also in person from Wellspring House Counselling Centre, Harrogate. Parking available. 5-10 minutes walk from Starbeck train station, and easily accessible by public transport.

Member organisations

BACP

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.

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.

Wheelchair user access

There is accessible parking and step-free access to Wellspring House, a ground floor counselling room and an accessible toilet. I am also able to offer sessions on-line or via telephone
