About me

I am a pluralistic counsellor working with a diverse range of issues including, but not limited to, depression / anxiety / workplace stress / emotional distress / abuse / health related issues / PTSD / sexual identity / complex trauma.

Pluralistic means that I value diversity and recognise that you as a client are individual, what works for one person may not work for the next, therefore I tailor therapy to you and your individual needs.It is a collaborative process and together we will decide upon your goals for counselling and the best way to work toward them. We can use talking therapy with my presence to provide guidance and support, creative work, written work, CBT influenced interventions... if I am able to support an approach I am happy to give it a go!

I work from the Good Health Clinic which provides a range of holistic treatment's such as reiki and massage, in the heart of Selby. With ample free parking close to the building and easy access from York and Leeds, I am perfectly situated to make counselling a less arduous process.

In addition to standard Monday to Friday sessions I also offer limited evening and weekend appointments.

I offer a free 30 minute phone assessment which provides an opportunity for you to ask lots of questions about me and my practice, to discuss your issues and how we may approach them as well as, most importantly, getting to know me to decide if you would like to work with me.

Full 50 minute sessions are £40 per session.
