About me

How Counselling can help you.

Are you struggling to make sense of your life at the moment? Perhaps you aren’t feeling like yourself, or are worrying about something that is making you unhappy or anxious?

Counselling, or talking therapy, is an opportunity to explore your thoughts and feelings in a safe, confidential environment. As a person-centred counsellor, I focus on your needs as an individual and work with you to help resolve the issues that are affecting you. I will help you to work out what is happening for you, without judgement or agenda. Together we can explore how you can feel better and more like the self you recognise.

How I will work with you.

I am a humanistic, person-centred counsellor, which means I focus on your needs as an individual, recognising that everybody is unique and special. I believe every human being, with the right desire, has the built-in ability to grow, develop and become a better version of themselves. I believe you are the expert on yourself, and with my help, can discover what you need to do to understand yourself and your feelings. Life can be hard to navigate, but I can walk alongside you to help you find your own way. 

What else I do.

For most of the week I work as a person-centred counsellor for the NHS in a GP Practice in York, providing free-at-source care for people who want to speak with a counsellor.

I work with private clients from my home in Knaresborough on Fridays during the day. I don’t offer sessions during the evenings or at weekends.

Training, qualifications & experience

I’m a qualified and registered BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) Counsellor in private practice. I have completed a Postgraduate Diploma in Humanistic Counselling at York St John University. My orientation is humanistic and person-centred.

I am a certified counsellor in telephone and video counselling through Counselling Tutor.

I have experience in delivering counselling to clients with a wide range of backgrounds.

I specialise in one-to-one counselling, working with adults agd 18 and over.

As a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP) I follow their ethical code of practice.

Member organisations

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Accredited register membership

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
Accredited Register Scheme

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.

Additional information

How counselling can help you

Are you struggling to make sense of your life right now? Are you experiencing anxiety or depression? Or are you finding it hard to come to terms with a bereavement or a life-changing event?

All of my sessions have a common theme and purpose; to enable you to share your thoughts, worries and concerns. Together we will explore them to help you begin the journey towards understanding and resolving them. I offer the following ways of counselling:

In-person counselling sessions (£50)
Sessions take place in a private room in my home in Knaresborough. Sessions last up to 50 minutes and will usually be the same day and time every week.

'Walk and Talk' counselling sessions (£50)
Walk and talk sessions take place in various locations around the town of Knaresborough, North Yorkshire. We can select a route and location that suits you while maintaining your privacy. Walk and talk sessions last up to 50 minutes and will usually be the same day and time every week, weather permitting.

Online video counselling sessions (£50)
Sessions can take place using MS Teams. You don't need MS Teams installed on your device - I ewill send you a link which will bring you into the meeting. I will talk with you from a private room in my home. Online video sessions last up to 50 minutes and will usually be the same day and time every week.

Brief counselling sessions (£85)
This one-to-one, extended single session takes place in a private room in my home, on a ‘Walk and Talk’ basis, or online using MS Teams. This typically one-off session will be a more solution-focused, workshopping session than my other forms of multi-session counselling, designed to work as a sounding board for you as you try to resolve a more immediate problem. Sessions last up to 90 minutes.

I work as a counsellor in the NHS myself so would like to offer a concessionary rate to my fellow NHS workers, emergency services, the social care sector and armed forces. Having been a student I know how challenging managing finances can be, so offer a concessionary rate for students. I also offer a concessionary rate for my fellow counsellors. 

If you are a Blue Light Card holder, Student ID Card holder or a BACP Member, I offer a concessionary rate of 20% off the standard fees for your counselling sessions.

Further information

You can book straight in if you are ready to get started with your counselling, or get in touch if you prefer, to arrange a free 20-minute initial chat. The free initial chat is usually in person but can be on the phone or on MS Teams. During your free, 20-minute initial chat you will be able to ask questions about how the counselling will work specifically for you, including which of the  types of counselling listed above you would prefer, and details such as dates and times for the counselling sessions.

We will have the opportunity to get to know one another a little, and for you to decide if you feel you would like to go ahead and work with me. Once you are happy, we can arrange to start the counselling sessions themselves.
